RUSSO'S THINK THE 2 HOUR FILM IS DEAD
Posted: 070819

They Believe we Are at the Dawning of a New Age of Long Form Storytelling

Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo says he sees the extinction of the two-hour movie looming. In a talk with Deadline, Russo told them that filmmakers will no longer be restricted to the generally targeted runtime of 120 minutes to tell their stories: “We are in a major moment of disruption. The two-hour film has had a great run for about 100 years but it’s become a very predictive format. It’s difficult, I think, to work in it… It’s sort of like saying, ‘We all like sonnets, so let’s tell sonnets for 100 years, as many ways as we possibly can… I’m not sure that this next generation that is coming up is going to see two-hour narrative as the predominant form of storytelling for them.” Endgame was over 3 hours and honestly it didn’t feel that long. His comment came after Martin Scorsese declared at the Marrakech International Film Festival that: “The cinema of the past hundred years has gone. It’s changed”.
