With the cost of the movie theater experience as high as it is, and theaters pushing Imax, 3D, bigger screens, sharper images, louder sound, and the such, does it not make sense that consumers choose to only see “blockbusters”? While it’s sad that only a certain type of movies are being released and watched in theaters, releasing movies to other mediums (Netflix, On Demand, Itunes, etc.) instead of the standard movie theater release is becoming more common. I guess the question is can the profit from taking a movie this route be able to potentially sustain a reasonable budget, and will the stigma of this type of release wear off so that the best and brightest will participate in films which are being released in this form?
