This, watch the op and others not say a thing when Angie is the one praised by the media and ends up collecting all the awards.

I watched most of the Marvel films and I don't know the Eternals' story. It's safe to say that this is the first time I read other name that's not Angelina attached to this project. So, everyone trying to undermine Jolie's presence in this is a fool. As far as I know, she's the biggest star worldwide cast in this film.

I love Angie, but not people thinking she’ll be the reason people will be watching a Marvel film... :ace:

Stars have little to do with it when the property holds the title for the highest grossing franchise in the film industry to date...

 

Marvel just had two of the most successful series in recent history thanks to their side characters who are arguably less of a draw than someone like Jolie. Will Angelina bring her die-hard fans to the theater? Sure. But you’re kidding yourself if you think that’s even a drop in the bucket of what Marvel’s impact has on getting people to the cinema...

Sure she is not the lead but she is the biggest name in the cast and will have people interested to see what does in it, I mean she trended yesterday for just a small teaser :rip: and by this I am not saying she is reason why people will watch the movie but she may attack a new audience + fans to it.

As long as she has a decent enough screen time it's fine. She wasn't the lead in "Wanted" either and still stole the show.

How is this Google trends screen cap relevant? People in Middle Eastern countries googling heavily photoshopped photos of Angelina from 2004 don't make her box office draw. :skull: 

 

Nobody actually goes out of their way to match her movies (especially internationally) as evidenced by Maleficent 2's performance. Its reception on Disney+ was abysmal. In fact, Angelina's best performing movies are animated, ensemble film where she plays a supporting voice role.

 

Gemma Chan isn't some big name, but that's irrelevant. This is a MCU movie so it will do well no matter who's in it.

Past 12 months in the United States sis :rip: Not 2004 in the Middle East. Reading is so fundamental, please stay in school. No one knows what a Gemma Chan is anywhere in the world

You misread. I meant photos from 2004, not the search results. :skull: 

 

And I'm not trolling. She's literally a hot search in Turkey, Tunisia, Philippines, Malaysia, etc. yet her films perform abysmally in Asia and North Africa. Well, until this one because it's a MCU movie. :skull:

Did I lie? Her box office results in Asia are awful. Or are you another stan pretending she's a box office draw? :skull: 

 

Oh, you are. Saw your response above. :skull:

That's fine -- Angie's name alone is what's going to bring them bank and buzz, and they knew that when they cast her, lead or not. She's the reason most people (even those who don't usually watch superhero movies) will be watching. 

 

There's a reason her face was the one shown most in the teaser trailer. Gemma will slay her part though!

The obvious daydreaming.

 

Angelina has never sold a movie on her name alone. NEVER. Her tiny and irrelevant filmography is a flop parade for a reason.

Jlo was literally one of the producers of Hustlers, of course she was getting mad push :rip:
