Q&A: Soderbergh on his 'boat movie' & the blockbuster's fate
In an interview by phone, he spoke about that prophetic 2011 film, leading Hollywood’s return to production and the future of the movie industry post-pandemic. Soderbergh: At the end of the day, what’s most important and irreducible is: You need talented people making stuff that’s good. AP: Do you think the kinds of movies that get made will change if the industry permanently shifts toward streaming? When you make a movie that blows up at the box office, that’s just too lucrative to ever abandon. There’s a zeitgeist aspect to any movie that makes $1 billion, and it’s got an expiration date.
