Since this is the last episode of The Hollywood Read, we revisit our 2020 predictions and update them for a post-pandemic world, including the future of streaming, blockbusters, and a potential contraction of the entire film industry. It’s a super depressing note to end our show on as we (mostly Sarah) completely abandon optimism. We thank you for listening, sharing, commenting, and recommending. See you at the movies…someday.
This week we dive into the incredible news that Warner Brothers will be releasing their entire 2021 slate of films day-and-date in theaters and on HBO Max. We discuss what it means for Warner Brothers going forward, why AT&T even wanted to own a movie studio in the first place, and what this could mean for the future of movies and movie theaters. Join us!
