Elizabeth Banks on Charlie's Angels

Cinemark Speaks to the Cast of Charlie's Angels

Exclusive: Cinemark Speaks to the Cast of Charlie's Angels

(09/27/2019)

For 78 years, the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation has honored filmmakers for their contributions to motion pictures, and for their philanthropy. An annual charity dinner raises money for the Pioneers Assistance Fund, which offers assistance to industry veterans in need; the centerpiece of each dinner is the presentation of the Pioneer of the Year Award.

This year, the Pioneer of the Year award went to writer/producer/director/actor Elizabeth Banks, whose new film, CHARLIE'S ANGELS, comes to theatres on November 15. Banks and her CHARLIE'S ANGELS cast — including Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska — walked the red carpet before the dinner, and we were there to speak to them about the award, and the film.

Banks is the first female director to win the Pioneer of the Year award. "I don't feel totally worthy," she said, "but I feel encouraged to continue to work in this industry, to become worthy of this award."

Kristen Stewart talked about Banks' work on CHARLIE'S ANGELS. "It's super turned-on and activated and warm," Stewart said. "There's something innately feminine about it, not in a way that's like "yeah, it's a badass female action movie!" It's actually about a bunch of friends [who] are just trying to get something done that matters to them, and that's so reassuring."
