Let's consider the other examples.
|Just before Taken 3 came out, leading actor Liam Neeson came out condemning gun ownership in America and linking private gun ownership with all the school shootings. In response, conservatives boycotted what should have been a highly lucrative opening to the best film in the closing series but conservatives stayed home and refused to support Neeson's position. As of September 19, 2016, we see star of The Magnificent Seven remake, Ethan Hawke, stating that the film is about people banning together to fight Donald Trump; regardless of whether you support Trump or not, the fact that Hawke has obviously decided to stand against the millions and millions of people who do support Trump--again, this is irrelevant if you do or not--and lose their patronage at this film, is a sign of a "controlled dive," to borrow the phrase from the pro-socialist Independence Day: Resurgence. Hawke wants the film to do poorly at the box office, just like all these other stars and their films discussed herein; the difference is, The Magnificent Seven is actually pro-socialist, whereas most of the other films in the pattern being examined are pro-capitalist; so, why doesn't Hawke want Trump supporters to see the film? In this article, Hawke states that he thinks Trump would actually like the film, even though it's about people banning together to fight against him. It's a bit risky for me to say this, but I think I'm going to, because I do think actors are this dumb: I think they have finally decided to turn against the studios and are trying to destroy the studios with continuously low-returns at the box office. Personally, the actors are usually all multi-millionaires, so they are taken care of, but because studios can make films like Captain America and Batman vs Superman, I think actors are deliberately turning against the studios to undermine the way films have supported and re-enforced traditional American values; if you saw Hail Caesar! by the Cohen Brothers, you know that Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is ready to go against the studio just to make a little cash off his own kidnapping. If you are a capitalist, you are probably thinking, "Why on earth would they do that?" Because after the studios fail, the government will have to take care of them, and that's what they want.|
