One of the Warner Brothers and most important filmmakers, Christopher Nolan, recently came out vigorously against the company’s decision to launch their movies on HBO max and in theatres (2021).
Nolan, during an interview, told the associated press that the business decision made by the company is not good. He also criticized how the company handled the decision.
This is what he said at the interview:
“The company took a biased decision. The people who were involved also didn’t know about this.” Christopher said.
“The studio has one of the finest filmmakers who worked with forbearance and passion for decades. You have these great filmmakers who did projects with big and famous movie stars for a great feature film. Now everyone knows that they are just workers of the studio, not more than that.”
What are the films announced?
Recently, Warner Bros declared their board of 2021 films they are going to bring on-screen. Movies including ‘Matrix,’ ‘Dune,’ and ‘In the Heights.’ These films will be released officially online as well as in theatres all over the US.
Nolan then said, “I have never seen everybody getting so upset for a very particular reason.”
The chief of the AMC theatres, Adam Aron, also criticized the move of the company last week, but all of the in-house filmmakers, only Nolan, came out to criticize the decision.
Christopher Nolan is working with The Warner Bros since 2002, in their every film. ‘Insomnia’ including ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy, ‘Inception’ and ‘Dunkirk’ are all Nolan’s great profitable and critically acclaimed run movies.
Nolan told the associated press, “Everything’s a mess. The decision is not right. This is not how you make good business decisions”.
Warner Bros studio declined all the comments made by Nolan.
Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster hit: TENET
Nolan’s recent film “Tenet,” a time-bending sci-fi thriller with movie star John David Washington, is not following any kind of suit and directly headed to premiere on HBO Max. Other than this, the film is being released on DVD, Blu-ray, and digitally on the 15th of December.
Nolan said, “He is very grateful that the film he made is not messing between the unplanned decision the company made.”
‘Tenet’ the only ‘blockbuster’ film during the pandemic?
‘Tenet’ is the only movie that is a blockbuster hit in early September after the studio has been closed for more than 6 months due to a pandemic. When major markets like Los Angeles and New York closed, domestic ticket sales reduced. Therefore, Warner Bros and other studios delayed the major films of the year. However, ‘Tenet’ made over $300 million.
“This sends a very cheerful message to the audience, about when theatres can be opened again. As long as there are great films to show, the audience is going to come back. There’s a lot of short thinking going on, which is not good in this pandemic situation.” Nolan while appreciating his film Tenet.
