In Hollywood, there is no rule for the financial and critical success of a movie; if it were, then no film would ever be unsuccessful. Sometimes it’s enough for us to look at who plays in a movie to watch it. If we see Robert De Niro playing in the film, we think that the movie is worth watching, but if Al Pacino and Morgan Freeman play it in the same movie, this film is considered compulsory. Guided by this logic, directors, and producers of certain achievements thought that famous names would guarantee success, but it turned out to be the opposite – they failed.
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Shaw Pen.
The Gangster Squad had a reinforcement in the cast in the form of legendary Sean Penn, but even he could not save director Ruben Fisher from this failure. A stylized thriller from the 1950s on police officers fighting the mafia was characterized as a boring and complete failure.
A New York Winter’s Tale
Cast: Russel Crowe, Will Smith, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Connelly.
The film is portrayed as supernatural mystery and romantic drama, whatever that is. Colin Farrell plays an immortal thief who is in love with Jessica Brown, and their love of film helps them fight the demonic gangster played by Russell Crowe. There was not even a chance for this realization to succeed, as the box office cashbooks showed.
Cast: Uma Turman, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Richard Gir, Hali Berry, Hugh Jackman, Emma Stone, Gerard Butler.
It is presented as a hilarious comedy, but a better genre to accommodate it is a horror. The film in which Hugh Jackman is more about the neck is not worth commenting. What is not clear about this film is how the director managed to assemble and persuade true Hollywood stars to play in this horror of the film.
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Bill Murray.
Emma Stone has been featured in this film by a US Army pilot who has a quarter of Hawaiian and a quarter of Chinese genes. If they looked a little closer to Emma, they would notice that on her face there is no indication of the origin and that it could not be presented with the best make-up. You know when someone tells you: It is only a movie.
