No more big pictures?

From the print version New York Daily News (3/6/06) – A column by Lloyd Grove

Star Wars maker George Lucas believes the days of the big budget blockbuster Hollywood movie are over. He points to two factors:

1. The quality of “small movies”
2. Old fashioned artithmetic


Here’s what George Lucas said:

“The market forces that exist today make it unrealistic to spend $200 million on a movie. (They) can’t make their money back any more.”

He pointed out that “small movies” outlclassed the blockbusters at this year’s Oscars.

“Is that good for the business? No – it’s bad for business. But movie-making isn’t about business, it’s about art.”

“I predict that by 2025 the average movie will cost only $15 million.”

So sayeth one of the most successful independent film makers of all time.
