Add this one to the ever-growing list of Hollywood reboots/remakes that no one asked for. I certainly never expected to see “Charlie’s Angels” back on the big screen following the two ridiculously bad movies from the early 2000s. Yet here we are with a new cast, new director, but (judging from the first trailer) much of the same cringy silliness as before.
The cast is a bit surprising but does seem to fit with the film’s obvious desire for diversity. Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska play the ‘Angels”. The biggest surprise is Elizabeth Banks. She directs, writes, co-produces, and co-stars so this truly is her project. It’s a surprising series for her to try and revive and our first look doesn’t leave the best impression.
“Charlie’s Angels” hits theaters November 15th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
