Surprise Lady director Patty Jenkins has criticised the straight-to-streaming mannequin for movies, saying they really feel “like fake movies”.
Throughout the pandemic, a bunch of movies have foregone conventional cinema releases resulting from restrictions, and gone to streaming companies immediately, one thing that’s turning into extra widespread even outdoors of COVID restrictions.
In a CinemaCon look this week (as famous by the Los Angeles Times), Jenkins hit out at movies made for streaming companies.
“Aren’t you seeing it? All of the films that streaming services are putting out, I’m sorry, they look like fake movies to me,” she mentioned. “I don’t hear about them, I don’t read about them. It’s not working as a model for establishing legendary greatness.”
Discussing her personal latest movie, Wonder Woman 1984, which got here to streaming service HBO Max the identical day because it arrived in theatres, Jenkins added: “I don’t think [Wonder Woman 1984] plays the same on streaming, ever. I’m not a fan of day-and-date and I hope to avoid it forever…I make movies for the big-screen experience.”
Earlier this yr, Jenkins mentioned she doesn’t think the current streaming model for films is going to last past the pandemic.
“Streaming is great, but everybody is chasing it for financial reasons and I don’t think the financial support is there to hold up the industry the way that it is.”
Elsewhere, Jenkins is set to direct a new Star Wars movie. Rogue Squadron is the subsequent Star Wars movie that will probably be launched within the present schedule, and is billed to achieve cinemas on Christmas Day 2023.
