Hollywood’s box-office formula is infected with COVID. The pandemic got audiences more used to streaming at home, instead of heading out for a pricey night at the theatre. And it doesn’t look like they’ll be racing back to the cineplex soon just for more played-out superhero sequels, pretentious dramas or preachy woke films. Mark Daniell. Entertainment editor at Postmedia, joins Anthony to talk about the way show business has had to rewrite its recipe over the last 18 months. And how Hollywood will need to work a lot harder if it wants to get regular people going out to the movies again. (Recorded August 3, 2021).
