Christopher Nolan who is a famous Hollywood star and film maker has condemned Warner Bros. for the decision to release their movies both in theatres and digital platforms at the same time.
Nolan criticized them after Warner Bros. decided to release “Wonder Woman 1984” simultaneously in theatres and digital platforms. Not only this, the studio has also decided to keep releasing their movies in the same way through 2021.
This is what Christopher Nolan has to say, “Oh, I mean, disbelief, especially the way in which they did. There’s such controversy around it, because they didn’t tell anyone. In 2021, they’ve got some of the top filmmakers in the world, they’ve got some of the biggest stars in the world who worked for years in some cases on these projects very close to their hearts that are meant to be big-screen experiences, Nolan told.
“They’re meant to be out there for the widest possible audiences… And now they’re being used as a loss-leader for the streaming service — for the fledgling streaming service — without any consultation. So, there’s a lot of controversy. It’s very, very, very, very messy. A real bait and switch. Yeah, it’s sort of not how you treat filmmakers and stars and people who, these guys have given a lot for these projects. They deserved to be consulted and spoken to about what was going to happen to their work,” he added.
Nolan further added, “Some of our industry’s biggest filmmakers and most important movie stars went to bed the night before thinking they were working for the greatest movie studio and woke up to find out they were working for the worst streaming service.”
This is what Nolan has to say about Warner Bros. who joined hands with them for the first time in 2002. “Warner Bros. had an incredible machine for getting a filmmaker’s work out everywhere, both in theaters and in the home, and they are dismantling it as we speak. They don’t even understand what they’re losing. Their decision makes no economic sense, and even the most casual Wall Street investor can see the difference between disruption and dysfunction,” Nolan disclosed.
However, there are no comments from the studio so far against Nolan’s outburst.
