Actor Leonardo DiCaprio fears that filming may have faded away in this era of streaming, he told Variety at the premiere of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” Quentin Tarantino’s production of Los Angeles in 1969. We are entering this era of streaming where things are done right away, and suddenly you have a show, eight episodes of a brilliant series that you can see almost every day,” said DiCaprio.
DiCaprio plays a Hollywood star at the sunset, alongside Brad Pitt, who plays his loyal stuntman and now a driver.
“A movie on the film, where you have Hollywood avenue brought to 1969 without the help of computerized technology, is something we will not see soon,” he said, adding that the perception of the way old movies were made is equivalent to reporting to dinosaurs.
“I hope we still have the usual experience of going to see a real work of art together and enjoy it.”
Steven Spielberg has also become one of the most vocal strikers of streaming platforms. “I hope we will all continue to believe that the greatest contributions we can make as directors are to give the audience the cinematic experience in the hall,” Spielberg said in February. “I firmly believe that cinemas must always exist.”
