She said: Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein is delighted with the box office performance of the MeToo movie

Harvey Weinstein, the convicted rapist and former film mogul, who is currently facing an additional 60 years in prison, has criticized she said.

The film is based on the 2019 book by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey about the New York Times Investigation that uncovered Weinstein’s sexual assaults on women over decades. It opened in the US on Friday (November 18) but grossed just $2.8 million (£2.3million) despite being released on more than 2,000 screens.

This result was despite the film’s positive reviews, as well as accolades for its leads, Zoe Kazan and Carey Mulligan.

Following reports of the film’s box office earnings, Weinstein’s rep shared a statement diversity although not asked for. It was determined that Weinstein was unable to speak for himself, so the narrator, Juda Engelmayer, spoke on his behalf.

The statement did not acknowledge Weinstein’s status as a convicted rapist or mention that he is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence. Nor does it relate to the fact that he is on trial on additional sexual assault charges.

Instead, it criticizes the film and praises Weinstein for his film production talent.

“The film she said Bombing is no surprise,” Engelmayer said. “Movie watchers want to be entertained right now. Details of the investigation, the #MeToo movement, the story of Weinstein and the accusers have been told over and over for the past five years, and it’s clear that it was of little value to see here.

“Harvey, the film producer and distributor, would have known that.”

The Independent has asked Universal for comment on this statement.
