I actually laughed out loud when I read that he thought Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were going to appeal to the younger crowd (as others have said, gen z mistaken for gen y) and bring in viewership. Does he have any pulse on the zeitgeist?
I'm sure the question was asked rhetorically, but no, he's clearly out of touch if he thinks Damon and Affleck (in their 50s now, right?) still appeals to the young'uns the same way they did almost two-and-a-half decades ago. He's also obviously using millenial as a blanket term for anyone not a boomer or a gen-x'er.
I actually had no idea the movie was even out, so the marketing clearly sucked. While I go through some social media, I still don't recall seeing any ads for it, and I'm old and still watch satellite TV, yet didn't see any ads for it on there, too. Though, to be fair, I had no interest in seeing it anyways, so it wouldn't have helped. The Gucci
film I might see, though, and I get some sense around more interest behind that one, so who knows, maybe that one will do well.
