After insisting so hard that his film, “TENET,” be released in theaters, filmmaker Christopher Nolan was taken aback by Warner Bros. ‘landmark decision. to release all its films scheduled for 2021 simultaneously on the big screens and on the HBO Max platform.
This unprecedented move will not only redefine the film industry, it was also made without any prior discussion or analysis with the filmmakers, producers and studios at WarnerMedia. And for Nolan, the measure is a big mess.
In an interview with ET Online, the acclaimed director harshly criticized Warner Bros., saying that the filmmakers and professionals involved in the projects should have been consulted in advance, out of respect for the considerable work done in their films:
“There is so much controversy about this, because they haven’t told anyone. It’s really, really, really messy. A true “bait and exchange” system. Yes, we should not treat these filmmakers, these stars and these people like that, they gave a lot for these projects. They deserve to be consulted and communicated on what will happen to their work ”.
Nolan went one step further and sharply criticized the streaming of HBO Max, saying that great movies – which were produced to be seen on the big screen by as many audiences as possible, are reduced to mere “mastery.” losses”:
“In 2021, they had some of the world’s greatest filmmakers and some of the world’s biggest stars who – in some cases – worked for years on these projects, which are close to their hearts and which were made for the screen experience. They were created externally, to reach the widest possible audience … And now they are being used to contain losses for the streaming service – for the new streaming service – without any prior consultation ”.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Nolan also called HBO Max “the worst streaming service”:
“Some of the industry’s biggest filmmakers and big movie stars went to bed thinking they worked for the biggest studio of all and woke up to find they worked for the worst streaming service.”
It should be remembered that the launch of “TENET” in theaters fell short of the projections expected by Warner Bros.
The film will officially release on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on December 15th.
