This is a short (3 page) response paper to a film(s) and its relationship to historical trends and issues in the film industry.
Finding an audience is critical to a film’s success, but as Thomas Schatz makes clear, this can happen in different ways. How was the release strategy for Avengers: Endgame (Anthony and Joe Russo, 2019) different from the release strategy for the film Winter’s Bone (Debra Granik, 2010)? What are the key differences or similarities in the way these films were distributed and promoted and how were they successful (or not)? For this question, check with the Internet Movie Database to find out what distribution companies were involved; sources such as Variety, Hollywood Reporter or IndieWire will be useful for this assignment. You MUST cite your sources.
