Hollywood director Ridley Scott accused “damn millennials and their cell phones” that his film “The Last Duel” flopped at the box office, writes The Hollywood Reporter.
Scott, 83, said the coronavirus pandemic and the plight of movie theaters didn’t affect box office as much as “an audience raised on these fucking cell phones.” Millennials don’t want to be taught anything unless they use a smartphone, he said. According to the director, young people with social networks are going in the wrong direction.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film received high marks from critics and moviegoers, but it flopped at the box office. The Last Duel, which stars Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jody Comer and Ben Affleck, grossed just $ 27 million on a budget of $ 100 million.
Previously, Ridley Scott called superhero films “damn boring.” He stated that his main complaint with comic books is weak scripts.
