    Hollywood "Goes Woke" Again and Casts Black Woman as 007

    https://www.theguardian.com/film/201...d-daniel-craig

    This is hilarious! We know the saying: Get Woke, Go Broke. They didn't learn their lesson with the Ghostbusters remake in 2016. That movie was a 70 million loss and now they are doing this!

    This is obvious pandering. The youtube videos of the news about this is about 150 likes to 1,500 dislikes. 007 is a man, not a woman. Everyone is mostly in agreement that there is a difference between diversity and forced pandering. Jokes going around like, "they couldn't find a black lesbian transwoman vegan to play the role?"

    This would be like the equivalent of remaking Black Panther with a white actor or "Shaft" with a white lead actor. Those would NEVER be done. The SJWness is destroying our culture by pandering.

    Did you read the article? She isn't "James Bond". She's a new character who is taking his code number, and James Bond is still in the movie. This isn't a recasting at all.

    Why can't she have a different code number? 007 is Bond, a white male.

    Like I said, no other movie would pander to people like this. No one would remake "Shaft" with a white lead actor. Or imagine wonderwoman being played by a male. It just won't happen.

    The Ghostbusters remake made 229 million box office on a 144 million production budget. Get woke, go broke indeed.

    That doesn't factor in advertising and promotion costs. It was an overall loss.

    Prove it.

    By my calculations, to have lost 70 million because of advertising and promotion and using the documented figures above, that means the advertising and promotion cost 303 million. Really?

    Production budget is the cost it takes to make the movie and pay the people. It does not factor in advertising budget such as TV commercials, radio ads and promotion giveaways. This is simple stuff.
