their mantra these days which is "fun"
The movie was never going to make a lot of money, even if it had good word of mouth,
Affleck should soldier into Warners head office, with his Batfleck gear on and knock some sense into them.
Just look at La La Land.
I really don't know about Warner anymore...it's either politics gone seriously wrong or incompetence (micro management branches off from there)
La La Land is a feel-good, romance musical with beloved stars. Live by Night is a movie about rum trading and revenge, with stars that have a little pull or none at all. Gosling has more draw than Affleck as an actor. Emma Stone has more draw than Sienna Miller. The movie would also run for an extra hour and is dialogue heavy. Those who think gangster films done right are full of action are usually mistaken.
