Episode 124: The Uncertain Future of Movies (Ft. Kyle Turner)

This week’s Floor 9 episode started out as a Twitter conversation between Adam and Kyle Turner over the value of the theatrical window. Kyle is a film critic whose work has been featured in NPR, Slate, and the New York Times, and we are very honored to have him with us this week, along with our content manager Richard, to have a spirited discussion about the future of the movie business, particularly around the implications of a diminishing theatrical window, and the lack of new IP originated from streaming services, as the film industry struggles to adapt to the streaming era over the course of the pandemic. We also discuss how the growing cultural relevance of video games impacts the future development of movies.
