Re: Spielberg Predicts 'Implosion' of Film Industry

I'd imagine there is a great market for theatres showing Oscar-bait movies with slightly expensive a la carte dinner, for posh ignorant people. Of course the space would have to be designed very well for it to work.

On the other hand, pre-release screenings for any movie with an established cult following, including blockbusters, could sell for pretty high prices too, as long as they give exclusive merchandise (must!). I don't know what I could be capable of paying, for the next Lars von Trier, David Lynch or Nicholas Winding Refn movie.

The anime industry is an extreme example of a very small number of insane people paying 60$ for every 2-episode volume on Blu-Ray, that they already saw on tv for free, and then buying as much merchandise as they can afford. I don't know what kind of movies could work on a similar principle though. It'd have to be people who live and breathe the genre. Some goth thing maybe?
