Weinstein God-bashing ‘Mary Magdalene’ film flops

December 21, 2018


By Catholic League for religious and civil rights,

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the fate of the movie, “Mary Magdalene”:

“Mary Magdalene” made the big screen in the U.K. and Australia, but it never made it to the U.S. That’s largely because the film was left in limbo when the Weinstein Company, the movie’s American distributor, crashed following the arrest of Harvey-the-predator-Weinstein. The movie also didn’t get the most raving reviews.

We are mentioning this today because tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of our attempt to dissuade the Weinstein Company from opening the movie on March 30, 2018. That was Good Friday. Given Harvey’s penchant for making anti-Catholic movies, we were expecting the worst. He even sought to have another public feud with me.

That is why I wrote to David Glasser, president of the Weinstein Company, asking him to reschedule the film. As it turned out, the movie was not virulently anti-Catholic.

It now appears that Harvey was trying to get me to give him some cheap publicity by beckoning me to attack him. As it turned out, his cheap behavior wound up giving him a boatload of publicity. Moreover, the movie went nowhere. Strike three was his arrest.
