Hollywood director Ridley Scott blamed millennials and their cell phones “in that his film” The Last Duel “failed at the box office, writes The Hollywood Reporter.

83-year-old Scott said that the coronavirus pandemic and the difficult situation of cinemas did not affect the box office in the same way as “An audience raised on these fucking cell phones.” Millennials don't want to be taught anything unless they use a smartphone, he said. According to the director, young people with social networks are heading in the wrong direction.
