CINEMA – “I don’t understand”. Angelina Jolie was annoyed to see several countries refuse to broadcast the latest Marvel film, which she is currently showing, because of the presence of a gay couple.
“Whether this makes people angry, that they feel threatened, does not approve or do not appreciate, it is ignorance,” commented the American actress to the Australian site news.com.au during an interview about the feature film whose trailer you can see below.
“Sad” that the public in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait or Qatar cannot see The Eternals, which features a brigade of superheroes impervious to time come to protect humanity, the one who plays the role of Thena is however “proud that Marvel refused to simply cut these scenes” to satisfy local censorship.
At the top of the American box office
“I still do not understand how we can live in a world where there are still people who do not want to see the family of the character of Phastos, nor the beauty of his relationship and this love,” laments Angelina Jolie.
In the film, Phastos, played by Brian Tyree Henry, is married to Ben, played by Haaz Sleiman. The couple share onscreen the first kiss between two men in any Marvel movie. The United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Lebanon and even Egypt will broadcast a censored version of the film without any intimacy scene, heterosexual or homosexual.
In the United States, the latest addition to the Marvel team and the work of Oscar-winning director Chloe Zhao, rose to the top of the American box office for its first week of operation, raising more than $ 71 million between Friday and Sunday.
The Eternals juggles with a five-star cast including Angelina Jolie but also Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan or Richard Madden.
