SPC Buys West Memphis 3 Doc

Just a note, for those keeping score… the deal was done BEFORE Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory didn’t win the Oscar on Sunday.

This film is looking for a theatrical audience and an ongoing conversation about the seemingly unfair deal that finally got the three out of jail. Sony Classics will give the film that chance… and then, in time, it will end up on Starz. I wonder where it will stream at that point…

    …to crickets and tumbleweeds on Starzplay. Where all of the Starz content has been available for years but they had to go to Netflix to monetize it.

“The extreme Dickensian nature of the business right now, in that it is the best of times and the worst of times. The business has become completely binary. When the audience is in, the upside is enormous. But when the audience is out, there’s no floor. And more and more are deciding out. People go less and less “to the movies.” More and more they go to a particular movie. We used to be counter-recessionary because we were the affordable leisure activity, but not today. And we’ve empowered Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, the OTT revolution. We have to deal with it. There’s no going back. Change is only going to accelerate.”
