Costner: 'It's Not Just About That Opening Weekend'
“A lot of times, the industry tells itself what happens on its opening weekend is what a movie is about. It's not just about that opening weekend. It's about 30 years from now. Movies have a chance to change us forever.”
-- Kevin Costsner, “100 Years of Warner Bros.,” on HBO Max, as scenes from “Blade Runner” play (ironically, given what WB did to the original release). I don't know about “Blade Runner” but fuck yeah to this quote. A thousand times this quote. And not just for movie but for everything. Look past this moment, this quarter, and at the big picture. The big picture that includes all of us.
