If the series follows the books its more military based than police investigation so a change of direction.

Don't forget Deadpool was also R rated and did ok. I think the Birds of Prey comics had a fairly low circulation which may not have helped.

Now Wonderwoman wasn't an R nor was Alita Battle Angel both 13's and they did better and if BOP was a 13 it may have picked up the teen demographic but I still think Ewan McGregor opening his mouth and then combative marketing sank this movie.

BTW the link takes me to no data and lots of ways to spend money and no I am not creating an account for the maybe promise of usable data.

If you ever see The blade itself, Red sister or rivers of London Hardbacks in a charity shop buy them, they all command serious money now.

So I was mostly wrong. Birds of Prey tanked but most of the people who saw it were men. Presumably insulting those who read the comics didn't stop them watching it.

Exactly this. The good and noble are so bland to read.

Have I missed a single example in this thread? Lots of people talking about how horrible we all are, but not discussing titles authors or giving examples. I reckon most of the fantasy published in the 70's or before (with a few notable exceptions) would not be published now.

The nicest Valentines gift I ever was given was 5 perfect white roses from a very good florist. the reason it was 5 was that was all she could afford and I had a good idea of what she had gone without to get those.

The best I have given a short story I wrote. I was woken by the recipient in tears (she had been on night shift) and I thought someone had died.

Finished the first powder mage book. It's wonderfull I wish I had read it years ago. I can even forgive the author, editors, proof readers et al allowing a line about loading a bullet then the charge into a flintlock rifle which made me wince hard.

Thats mostly nothing for me then.
