Margot Robbie provides ‘field workplace poison’ to her resume after 4 cataclysmic bombs in 2 years
There are only a few names in Hollywood which are assured to usher in a crowd based mostly on their identify alone, and it’s starting to look as if Margot Robbie won’t ever be one among them, with the two-time Academy Award nominee racking up a quartet of disastrous field workplace bombs for the reason that starting of 2020 alone.
We’re not doubting the star’s skills in any respect, with the 32 year-old rightly thought to be one among her era’s best performers, whereas her work behind the digicam has seen her dive into the manufacturing world with aplomb to shepherd the likes of Best Picture nominee Promising Young Woman to the display.
However, that doesn’t imply there isn’t a worrying development afoot that’s seen the Australian lend her undoubted chops to a worrying string of business disasters. Birds of Prey kicked off the undesirable dropping streak in early 2020 after barely squeaking previous $200 million globally, and any hopes of sequels or spinoffs are successfully useless within the water beneath the brand new DC Studios regime.
The Suicide Squad cratered horrendously final summer time, with the R-rated hybrid of sequel and reboot not even coming near recouping its mammoth $185 million funds from theaters. David O. Russell’s Amsterdam and Damien Chazelle’s Babylon had been launched solely weeks aside – and every was initially pegged as an awards season contender – just for the star-studded pair to as an alternative do battle over which one goes to lose probably the most cash in the long term.
Robbie took prime billing in each DC tasks, and was credited second within the different two behind Amsterdam‘s Christian Bale and Babylon‘s Brad Pitt, but in the latter case it was her who served as the focus for virtually the entire marketing campaign. On the plus side, we’re fairly positive that Barbie goes to proper the ship subsequent summer time, except after all Oppenheimer will get in the way in which.
