Spielberg is untouchable. It is one of those directors who have worked a career with work, talent and good work. Each statement is therefore more relevant and draft than if another director of Hollywood w said. Attention is paid and what h been said with respect is analyzed. Well, recent statements to The New York Times leave no one indifferent.
When the cinema disappeared with the pandemic
Pre-pandemic cinema figures were absolutely spectacular. In 2019 all the records with Disney at the head were beaten. And we already know what happened next. The world w paralyzed and culture stepped on the brake. Only digital books, widowers were saved and, to which we are going, streaming services.
Netflix, Disney, HBO Max… They saw how their subscribers rose like the foam at a time when confinements locked us in our homes. With the empty rooms, the drawers of the producers began to be carried out with dozens of Pericles that could no longer be releed in rooms. Warner , desperate, chose to relee directly in HBO Max , crossing the fingers so that the Numbers of the Suede would compensate for the expense.
