Director Francis Ford Coppola joins the long list of legendary filmmakers attacking Marvel Studios movies.
Martin Scorsese was the first to attack the films of Marvel Studios for considering that they are not even cinema. Afterwards, many other people have followed the same path. Now, we collect some statements from Francis Ford Coppola responsible for the saga The Godfather (1972 – 1974 – 1990), apocalypse now (1979) and Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992).
In a recent interview with GQdirector Francis Ford Coppola He said that there are too many movies that are the same and that movie studios are not risking anything anymore:
“There used to be studio movies. Now there are images of Marvel. And what is a Marvel image? A Marvel Studios movie is a prototype movie that gets made over and over and over and over to make it look different.”
“Even talented people, you could take Dune, made by Denis Villeneuve, extremely talented artist, and you could take No Time to Die, directed by Cary Fukunaga, extremely talented, talented, beautiful artists, and you could take both movies, and you and I we could take the same sequence from both and put them together. The same sequence where all the cars crash into each other. They all have those things, and they almost have to, if they’re going to justify their budget. And those are the good movies and the talented filmmakers.”
Curiously, Francis Ford Coppola been trying to do for a long time Megalopolis, a movie that seems big budget and has an interesting plot. As an architect wants to rebuild New York City as a utopia after a devastating disaster. The cast will consist of Zendaya, Cate Blanchett, oscar isaac, michelle pfeiffer, Jon Voight, james caan, Forest Whitaker and Jessica Lang.
