oppenheimer Director Christopher Nolan has expressed fear that projects that cannot be accessed through physical media will disappear if they are removed from streaming platforms.
Nolan recently appeared in an interview with Washington Post to discuss the upcoming home release of his film, which he previously felt was important to prevent an evil streaming platform from stealing his project from viewers.
He said: “Films that only exist on streaming services are at risk of disappearing whenever streaming services decide to remove them.”

He emphasized the importance of the home video version for movies, stating, “The streaming version of movies comes and goes, but the home video version remains for viewers to access anytime they want.”
Nolan added that filmmakers who took video versions of movies for granted since the 1980s now need to make sure there’s a way that can continue to happen.
He said film culture thrives on new innovations, insisting that accessibility to work must be protected.
