>A group of prominent pick-up artists have claimed that they cost Star Wars: The Force Awakens more than $4 million at the worldwide box office after their reporting criticized the film’s alleged feminist undertones. David Garrett, of Return of Kings, wrote that a Twitter poll of his fellow pick-up artists revealed a significant financial impact on Star Wars as a result of the site’s articles on the film.

>"Fifty-five percent of respondents to a Return of Kings Twitter poll have said that online reporting of the progressive nature of The Force Awakens influenced their decision whether to see the film. Extended across our readership, with over 900,000 users accessing ROK between November 21 and December 21, this amounts to a potential direct impact of $4,219,456.54 (55% x $8.38 x 915,482) on total revenues. $8.38 is based on the average cinema ticket price in the US, which is now an all-time high."

>The Return of Kings website, a haven for pick-up artists, published several reviews of The Force Awakens throughout December, in which they took aim at the casting of a woman in a central role. One Star Wars review on the site for pick-up artists dubbed Daisy Ridley’s character Rey a “Mary Sue"(though so did progressive website The Verge https://archive.is/Nddhp), and John Boyega’s character Finn a “glorified white knight.”

>The Star Wars battleship has forged a brutal course through multiplexes, sinking box office records on an almost daily basis. Forbes, in fact, pointed out that, even if the bizarre mathematics deployed by pick-up artists held true, their figure would still be a minor one in terms of The Force Awakens‘ overall box office performance.
>>
>"As of New Years Eve, The Force Awakens is enjoying a $629 million box-office domestically (topping The Avengers) with it racing past the $761 domestic box office of Avatar by next week. Globally, the new Star Wars is sitting pretty at $1.29 billion and change. And the movie will be in theaters for many more weeks, sending all these numbers even higher. Even if the Return of Kings Twitter poll is accurate (pro-tip: Twitter polls are never accurate) and the website helped prevent $4.2 million in ticket sales, that’s not even a drop in the massive Star Wars bucket. It’s actually an embarrassingly tiny drop, if anything."

>The Force Awakens is not the first of 2015’s biggest films to have provoked the ire of pick-up artists online. Earlier in the year, Mad Max: Fury Road was savaged by Return of Kings, as recounted by the Hollywood Reporter, for foregrounding Charlize Theron’s Furiosa character rather than Tom Hardy’s eponymous road warrior. Fury Road was said to be designed to “force a lecture on feminism down your throat.”

>As was the case with Star Wars, pick-up artists were urged to boycott Fury Road. That film went on to scoop in excess of $350 million worldwide. Star Wars has already made more than $1.5 billion at the time of writing.
