The Hollywood Read ep. 13

THR LogoLast year, romantic comedies came back in a big way, fueled by the success of Crazy Rich Asians and Netflix’s “summer of love”. This week, we take a look at the rom-com revival and how this once-great staple of the cineplex is now fodder for streaming platforms. We dig into how Netflix fueled the revival by releasing several rom-coms within a few months, the landmark success of Crazy Rich Asians, and how streaming rom-coms are propping up a new generation of young stars. But we also get into the limits of the genre and wonder how long Netflix can really keep it up before they kill rom-coms just like traditional studios once did. Roll into Oscar weekend with a comparatively light-hearted episode about the one genre of film dedicated solely to making you feel good.

Here is Lana Condor in Cosmopolitan talking about how she’s too busy to be thirsty: https://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/a26029103/lana-condor-cosmopolitan-cover-march/
