Big Hollywood Directors Seem To Think People Will Actually Pay $30 To Watch Movies At Home
from the reality-calling... dept
And, as stupid as $30 movies at home are, what this really foreshadows is the ridiculous levels to which the industry will go to block the real innovation that the industry needs: day and date release on all formats on the same day. If they're so scared of massively overpriced video at home ten weeks after the theater debut, you can bet they'll go absolutely ballistic when anyone tries to release video on demand and in the theater at the same time.
It seems that, once again, we have people focusing on the "tradition" of the way things were done, rather than actually providing what consumers want. How many times does this need to happen before industry folks realize this doesn't work?
