The latest female-led action flick to hit theaters is the new woke reboot of Charlie’s Angels set to release in theaters this week. Looking at the early box office tracking for that film shows that audiences are not hyped for the girl power action film. Under normal circumstances, this would be a message to Hollywood that moviegoers are not interested in this current wave of progressive female-led action films but as Terminator Dark Fate has proven, Hollywood would rather lose hundreds of millions of dollars than give up on their cultural agenda.

“The future is female!” is the motto Hollywood has adopted since kingpin Harvey Weinstein was publicly exposed for exchanging sex with women in the industry for fame and fortune. Now the same industry that knew about his crimes and enabled him for decades are now positioning themselves as the leaders of a new female-led revolution. A revolution that is replacing male-led franchises with women. A revolution that is rewriting franchises to match their progressive ideology but most important, a revolution that is providing films that audiences do not want to see.

For every Captain Marvel, there have been dozens of female-led films in the last couple of years that haven’t matched the excitement of audiences that comes from its creators, especially financially. Here is a list of Hollywood’s recent failures to feminize franchises.
