Hot Potato: Ridley Scott has been behind the camera for some of the best and most famous films - Blade Runner, Alien and Gladiator. His latest proposal, "The Last Duel," is another issue that received rave reviews from critics, but did not become a box office issue. According to the director, this is the fault of careless and “gay cellphones” millennials.
Scott used his presence on Marc Maron's WTF podcast to reveal the reason for The Last Duel's poor performance. "I think it's because of that -- what we have today [is the audiences that grew up with these cell phones," he said. "Millennials will never want to learn anything unless you say it on your mobile phone." The Last Duel, starring Ben Affleck, Jodi Comer, Matt Damon, and Adam Driver, is an epic historical drama set in 14th century France and addressing today's social themes. At Rotten Tomatoes, it represents 81% of the audience. p>
