    This is probably because streaming killed home video. Like how do these services even make money?

      This.

      It's hysterical how they spin the fact the movies they've been making have been complete shit, and they try to blame everything else.
      >muh budget too high
      >muh covid
      >muh superhero fatigue

      Let them burn.

    They don't care about losses. They'll keep pumping out crappy movies until you like them, even if it takes decades. It's the Amazon model.

      This. It's not like they personally lose anything, since the funding is infinite as long as they keep on message.

      Because their job is to shill slop to you until you wont accept the slop anymore then to save face and any semblance of credibility they slowly reveal some truth. It is basically what I call the "fox news" model. Fox doesnt report news, they just tell you some bullshit about things you already know about, they will only report one step ahead of your own personal knowledge and they wont report anything beyond what the average person already knows. You have to force them to report the truth by exposing the truth on social media. When enough people know they are lying or just not reporting on something at all, THEN you force them to acknowledge it. The REAL news is reported here

    Hmm yes we shouldn't spend money on things like sets and locations, surely we need to hire more DEI, people will see our movie if we do that!

    Stop casting ugly bony unsexy women and stop covering up the attractive ones that you DO cast. Stop writing women for women. That's not what they're there for. These women should be written to attract men. No man gives a single FRICK about a chick going
    >Uhm actually I'm a [professional title] and blah blahdy blah independent woman
    Frick all that. Make them lighthearted and supportive and attractive. It's male power fantasy. Stop fricking with the formula. It just demoralizes people and drives them to make their own content or to religion. Chasing away people, primarily men, from entertainment is fricking stupid. They target heterosexuality under the banner of "white males r bad" and its never going to fricking catch on.

    No lol. All the people who would make a new "New Hollywood" are less creative than those working in 60s Hollywood.

    maybe if they put most of the money into the movie instead of their pockets, people might watch them.

    People would pay to watch big budget movies if they were actually good and not just rehashed bullshit filled with woke propaganda.

    Zoomers dont give a shit about stuff like Indiana Jones. Xillenial nostalgia milking shit died off like 8 years ago.

    of all the movies to spend that money on, Indiana Jones 5 was not it. this should have been a Disney+ exclusive, not one of the most expensive films ever made.

    I really don't get why movies were so much more expensive than older films even accounting for inflation.
    Literally just make movies 90 minutes and you'd save 10s of millions of dollars.

    > the Best Adapted Screenplay winner Cord Jefferson (the writer and director of American Fiction) suggested to the studios that in future, rather than making one $200 million dollar movie, they might try making 20 $10 million dollar movies instead.
    I literally said the same thing here.

    They've waited too long. No one will give a shit about new hollywood 2 because the only people they're prepared to give funding to are nepo babies and out-of-touch la morons.
    They aren't funding the next generation of auteurs. At best, they'll fund the next generation of frickwits making shit like Gunpowder Milkshake.
    Ai will destroy the industry and it deserves to burn so who cares?

    Unless they plan on effectively ending the shitty remakes/reboots/threequels/prequels, this isn't anything noteworthy.

      Evil can't create anything new, it can only twist and corrupt what the forces of good already created.

    The new Indiana Jones was dead the second that smug looking b***h invoked capitalism in the trailer (notice they've removed that bit in all the trailers now). This film probably wouldn't have been a huge hit, but audiences are sick of multi-billion dollar companies condescending to them.

      I thought it was dead when Disney thought that nostalgia and brand recognition were enough to drudge up a 80 year old Harrison Ford for a current demographic who haven't heard of his character to star in a medium that's slowly dying out in favor of streaming.

        That didn't help, but the audience of devotees that would have seen it because "it might be better than Crystal Skull?" had their question answered by the trailer. At least Indy was still the hero on Crystal Skull.

    Dune 2 is a massive hit though. I think it's less about big blockbuster releases and more about creating products that don't necessarily treat their audience like morons. Lowest common denominator products are all that most studios have released for a decade.
