Warner Bros. Release Slate for the Summer of 1971
1971 was a different time for Hollywood … literally, of course, but also in audience and studio trends.
Check out this release slate from Warner Bros. for the summer of 1971. Notice anything? Well for one, these certainly aren’t kids movies. Furthermore, they’re also not what we consider to be traditional big-budget popcorn action flicks.
Nowadays we’re stuck in the odd position in which movie studios are cashing in on the franchise flicks and tentpole features in order to stay financially viable and pay for a select number of arthouse films that they consider riskier and may not produce a profit.
