The decision has received a huge amount of backlash, with AMC recently speaking out about how they would ‘aggressively pursue economic terms that preserve our business’.
Now famous movie director Christopher Nolan has hit out with some brutal comments, revealed in a statement given to The Hollywood Reporter.
‘Some of our industry’s biggest filmmakers and most important movie stars went to bed the night before thinking they were working for the greatest movie studio and woke up to find out they were working for the worst streaming service.
‘Warner Bros. had an incredible machine for getting a filmmaker’s work out everywhere, both in theaters and in the home, and they are dismantling it as we speak. They don’t even understand what they’re losing. Their decision makes no economic sense, and even the most casual Wall Street investor can see the difference between disruption and dysfunction.’
