we really comparing Guardians of the Galaxy to baggage claim though?
those films are really white films? their huge productions with a white lead and few people of color in the cast
fast 6 had 2 white leads the rest were a multi racial cast and made 238 million here and 789 million world wide..all fast and furious has made like 937 all together
if those films you named are white films then Men In black is a black film which has 429 million
if you want to compare films make sure their similar films with similar budgets and a predominately cast of one color
Nah. that was just one example,but I wasn't comparing those specific films
A black film has to have a almost all black cast so fast 6 or men In Black are black films
Will has a white co star and Paul Walker is the star of fast and Furious films
neighbors and baggage claim are more in the same ballpark
As a nigga who knows exactly how studios work and the sort of thing that they are concerned with, this shit is common knowledge. In the end, Hollywood studios are concerned with money and money only. It's a fact that historically, movies staring black male leads don't do well overseas and these days the overseas market makes up a BIG portion of the box office. Will Smith is about the ONLY black star who bucks that trend sometimes.
I'd say this is more of an indictment of how blacks are viewed overseas and anything malicious on the part of the study exec. But it does speak to their unwillingness to make art for art's sake and being a slave to capitalism.
In the end...they trying to make that money bag as big as possible.
I may catch some hate for this,but it could it be possible that black ppl are doing this to make ppl remember blacks who got killed?
Seems random for whites to put these historic racial killings back in the public with yrs on them.
Seems like a reminder especially if the last pic really has the hash tag "I can't breath" on it
I thought about that as well, but if you're trying to make a political statement in that way, you'd take credit for it, so that people will know what your message is.
