The Big Sick: New Trailer Drops For The Judd Apatow-Produced Comedy

2 May 2017 5:25 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

A popular (and legitimate) knock against the movie industry today is that big-budget blockbusters are squeezing out smaller, independent films. Put another way, Hollywood math favors massive spectacles that fill stadium seating; consequently, there's simply less opportunity for lower-budgeted personal or human stories that explore relationships, culture, and society. Even though indies are far cheaper to make, they don't yield remotely the same level of revenue. Stupid math!

Fortunately, the emergence of cash-flush, independent studios like Netflix and Amazon -- who've cultivated diverse, niche audiences -- are bucking the status quo. They're betting that multi-platform, worldwide streaming services are the secret sauce to unlocking success in smaller films, which the monolithic, risk-averse studios wouldn't otherwise touch. It's a huge win for film buffs and cinema lovers, who maybe aren't seeing their interests reflected in the typical summer or holiday fare.
