Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. Pictures are reportedly breaking up
Here’s what Christopher Nolan had to say about Warner Bros. Pictures’ decision to put all their 2021 blockbusters on HBO Max:

Warner Bros. had an incredible machine for getting a filmmaker’s work out everywhere, both in theatres and in the home, and they are dismantling it as we speak.
