Director Ridley Scott Blames Millennials For The Last Duel Flop


Oscar nominated director Ridley scott thinks I know why his latest project, The last duel, could not compete with its box office competitors.

The acclaimed director addressed the film’s less-than-ideal revenue numbers during the final episode of Marc Maron‘s WTF Podcast. Despite rave reviews from critics, The last duel-a film released in mid-October with Matt damon, Ben affleck and Jodie comer– raised just $ 28 million against a production budget of $ 100 million.

“Disney did a fantastic job of promoting the film,” Scott said of the film’s production studios, adding that “the bosses loved the film… I was worried it wasn’t for them.”

According to Ridley, there could be a particular generation that could be to blame for the lack of sales. “I think what it boils down to,” he said. “What we have today [are] the audience that was raised on those fucking cell phones. The millennium [sic] never want to learn anything unless someone tells you over a cell phone. “
