"don't exist" - Quentin Tarantino dig on Ryan Reynolds' $50M Netflix movies
The renowned filmmaker Quentin Tarantino went on a rant about the status of some films now and their potential in the future. His comments raised a big red signal for Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds, even though they were totally inappropriate. Ryan Reynolds received $50 million for a Netflix film, according to Tarantino.
Working with steaming services is not something Quentin Tarantino is fond of
Tarantino expresses opposition to movies available on streaming and OTT services. Such films obviously weaken him since they produce such meager profits. The director, angry, said, "I mean, what is a motion picture anyway these days?" Because, according to the director of Kill Bill, "that would be diminishing returns" if it were something they broadcast on Apple.
How did Tarantino put it?
Quentin Tarantino's comments were posted by the well-known media website Deadline. He said, “I’m not picking on anybody, but apparently for Netflix, Ryan Reynolds has made $50M on this movie… I don’t know what any of those movies are… It’s almost like they don’t even exist.”
