Sean Penn is Worried for the Future of Cinema, Says “With the Injection of Streaming…”

Sean Penn, a veteran actor, has always loved movies, but with the rise of streaming platforms and the impact of the epidemic, he is unsure what the future holds. Penn shared: “The business I knew is not the business of today. Especially with the lingering effects of the COVID pandemic, you know, on every level of the business or the creative filmmaking, one wonders what the future is going to be.

“With the injection of streaming, the convenience, capability of seeing films at home theatres and so on – which would not have been my guidance. I’m still a guy who fell in love with the girl whose name is cinema in a movie theatre in the dark with strangers. I think the kinds of stories that interest me are the ones that want to be experienced in that way,” the actor added.

Sean Penn likened streaming to a huge bookstore in which people never cross paths, reports The acclaimed star told Sky News: “It seems to be a less unifying experience for culture and society at any given time than it was when I fell in love with it.”

Penn also believes that the industry has become “very treacherous” for up-and-coming actors. He said: “For actors getting involved in the world today, you’re talking about very prestigious things in terms of how the business is perceived, which is to get a part in a series. Well, that part in a series might mean you’re not going to do any other parts for six years.
