Directed by “Teneta” Christopher Nolan criticizes Warner Bros. studio’s decision to produce films simultaneously in cinemas and in streams. Moreover, the Oscar winner called HBO Max the worst streaming service.
Nolan denounced WarnerMedia’s stunning announcement that the studio will release its entire list of 2021 HBO Max movies on the same day that they will be launched in cinemas. “Some of our industry’s biggest filmmakers and most important movie stars went to bed at night thinking they were working for the biggest studio and woke up to find out they were working for the worst streaming service,” Nolan said in a new interview.
“Warner Bros. had an incredible scheme to show work to directors everywhere, in theaters and at home. They don’t even know what they have to lose. Their decision makes no economic sense, and even the first Wall Street broker to be caught can see the future collapse in this decision,” the director said.
Nolan had a long working relationship with Warner Bros., starting in 2005 with the movie “Batman: The Beginning” and ending with his last movie “Tenet”. Because of the studio’s decision to release Nolan’s last film in the summer, at the height of the pandemic, the loss of cash register was at least 100 million dollars.
