Elizabeth Banks's reboot of Charlie's Angels was a major flop at the box office, earning just a measly $8.6 million in its opening weekend in the US.

At present, the film has made around $55.8 million worldwide, which only just about covers the cost of its production – so at this point, a sequel looks unlikely.

Now, Kristen Stewart, who stars alongside Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska in the Sony film, has opened up about its disappointing performance, claiming it's "kind of hard to promote a movie like that".

Speaking to comicbook.com, she said: "Well, to be honest with you, I think if I had made a movie that wasn’t good and one that I wasn’t proud of and a lot of people saw it, I would be devastated.

"Luckily I’m not feeling gutted because I really am proud of the movie. And I think that the kind of the climate that we’re living in right now is polarising and it’s weird and it’s kind of hard to promote a movie like that.

"And I think trying to have a really complicated, overly politicised feminist conversation in a five minute TV interview about Charlie’s Angels… I’m like, ‘Dude, we just wanted to have a good time.'

On the unlikelihood of there being a sequel, she added: "I’m bummed that we probably won’t make another one, but at the same time I’m really proud of the movie and I’m so happy that it exists and can live in the world. Because I think for a lot of people it’s still kind of important even in a very non-serious way."

Charlie's Angels is in cinemas now.
