The cinema industry is set for a huge shake-up.
Coming to a sofa near you – Matrix 4. Wonder Woman 1984 (although not in 4K). Soon there will be no reason to leave the house. Oh wait – there isn’t already! Now cinema has been dealt a massive blow by one of the largest studios themselves. A classic case of shooting themselves in the foot. According to Nolan, none of the Warner Bros. talent were consulted on the move to bring top cinematic releases to streaming service HBO Max, leaving cinemas for dead. And let’s face it, this failing service isn’t even Netflix.
Christopher Nolan has even put his future relationship with Warner on the line by describing it as the “Worst streaming service” and flagship movies as “loss leaders” in a “bait and switch”.
It’s a full blown crisis in the cinema world.
What happens next?
