Christopher Nolan is met blockbusters zoals Inception, Interstellar en zijn laatste hit Tenet een legende. Maar nu krijgt de regisseur een hoop kritiek, nadat hij woest reageerde op filmstudio Warner Bros. om alle films van 2021 simultaan met de bioscooprelease op HBO Max uit te brengen.
Nolan noemt HBO Max zelfs “de slechtste streamingdienst” die er is: “Sommige van de grootste filmmakers en meest belangrijke filmsterren gingen afgelopen nacht naar bed met het idee dat ze werkten voor de beste filmstudio, om wakker te worden en te ontdekken dat ze in werkelijkheid werken voor de slechtste streamingdienst.”
‘Ik haat zijn houding’
Christopher heeft liever dat zijn film in de bioscoop draait. Een hoop mensen laten op Twitter weten het oneens te zijn met de regisseur en vinden het wel fijn dat er een keuze is tussen het kijken vanaf de bank of op een groot bioscoopscherm: “Nolans opmerking is erg kortzichtig en puur ego.”
The man saying this when WB did everything he wanted for TENET release. I love his movies but lately I hate his attitude.

I personally expected more maturity from these entertainment professionals.

This plus the fact that Nolan doesn't allow anyone working on his movie set to sit in chairs makes me think the guy is pure evil.
Nolan put audiences in danger. Tenet bombed because of him. If he had allowed his film to stream he could've been a hero like Patty Jenkins.

Does he actually think that people are going to flood the theaters when we are in the second wave of a pandemic? WB is trying to get the movies seen that they’ve spent so much money on making. I think it’s a very smart move. Nolan’s comment is very short sighted and pure ego.

LOL. Christopher Nolan is the REASON that Warner Brothers made the decision they did. He fucked them on TENET. He forced it to go theatrical and lose millions of dollars. Any filmmakers who are angry should direct their complaints to Nolan. He caused this.

This isn’t so much about saving the big screen experience as it is adapting and evolving. You can STILL have a big screen experience. Or, if you choose, you can see it comfortably at home; and I do think, like it or not, streaming is a part of the movie industry going forward.

I think Chris is forgetting how great WB treated him, including during Tenat...which was not a success. Very un classy way of talking about a studio that has been VERY supportive to him

Nolan is my fav director but cmon dude, give WB a break. Also, he's acting very entitled here. WB def should've informed the theatre exhibition & Legendary of their decision but they are not obligated to let the filmmakers or actors know. It's their money...

Christopher Nolan is about to witness Wonder Woman 1984 succeed with a global theatrical release and on HBO Max and he’s salty about not getting that deal from Warner Media 😂😂😂😂

Hbo max needs to give me back HP and Nolan needs to stfu ( and i actually saw Tenet in theaters, I was the only human in the entire room) he needs to chill

Why is he bitching?? We’re literally waist deep in this Covid shit. There’s no telling when Covid restrictions will actually ease. And then when the public overall actually feels comfortable enough to go out to mass gatherings. Probably Fall 2021 at the earliest if that.

Oh Chris, nobody wants to pay money to sit in a viral incubator with 200 strangers loudly eating behind them for 3 hours. Welcome to 2020. Evolve your expectations about the future, stop clinging to the past, aspire to be like your movies and do something new and exciting on TV.

Christoper Nolan fans
Maar Christopher heeft ook wat fans die hem verdedigen. Zo tweet iemand: “Warner: Hé, laten we in feite iets achter je rug doen!”
Personally I don't like it. Should have just been patient. I feel this is just going to lead to lower quality made for streaming movies and help kill the culture of american cinema.

And its not Just Nolan. 17 films! Massive amounts of teams were given the hand on what and where the movies would be distributed out of WB’s seemingly last minute choice. It ain’t even about theaters at this point

Wow. That’s a lot whining and bitching in one article.

I think Nolan was in the right to want Tenet be released in theaters. WB wanted to test the waters and released it when they did. It didn´t work that well and I believe it led to their new strategy. Smart, given the situation. #HBOMax #WarnerBros #ChristopherNolan #Tenet

Everyone understands what #ChristopherNolan saying right? That when things get back to normal and theaters are open. To release these films as they we’re intended for. Not suggesting dropping the films in theaters now. #FilmTwitter #nolan #WarnerBros #hbomax

Gelukkig konden wij in Nederland zijn laatste film wél zien in de bioscopen. Als je de sci-fi ook zo geweldig vindt check dan deze lijst met de 7 films die je moet kijken na het zien van Tenet.
