Shyamalan steps in

M. Night Shyamalan has entered the fray of industry people arguing about the shortening of the video window, telling a group of theater operators at the ShowEast convention that “if this thing happens, you know the majority of your theaters are closing. It’s going to crush you guys.” Meanwhile, Steven Soderbergh has emerged as the one major filmmaker who supports the shortening (or, even, elimination) of the window.

Will more filmmakers speak publicly on this issue? Probably. Will their public utterances have any real impact on the complex sequence of business decisions by large corporations that determine these kinds of industry shifts? Probably not. Will the video window shorten even further? My crystal ball is getting foggy.
