Christopher Nolan’s fury at Warner in streaming controversy – “They didn’t tell anybody”

Nolan - The Dark Knight premiere

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?

It’s tempting to look at classic cinema as a quaint, anticipated thing of the past. It’s an under-fire aesthetic like never before.

YouTubers seem happy with 30p or 60p and TVs do their best to smooth over the cinema look by default.

Well, not any more – according to the Hollywood Reporter, Filmmaker Mode is debuting on upcoming TVs by virtue of the UHD Alliance and some of cinema’s best known directors.
