It takes a fucking year before the Avengers come out. My god that's a long time.
Sometimes it's two years before a film get's in theaters. By the time some indies get in the theater, I've lost interest.
You know its a huge global industry with tons of different parties involved? Not even accounting for the time involved in such a production that is special effects laden and has huge set pieces.
For a huge film like Avengers, it takes 3-5 months to film, about 3-5 months to edit and add post production effects. Then the last 2 months for screenings, pick ups, more editing and marketing.
That's the problem with those big-budget special effects extravaganzas, it takes forever to make the cool stuff look that cool.
Hang in there, OP. That's rough!
Some movies are made in two weeks, OP.
Cassavetes took years and long breaks sometimes to make his films because he would run out of money and he and Gena would have to land more acting jobs to pay to get the production back up.
The Avengers isn't anything worth thinking about at all.
Why the hell does it matter to anyone when a film is released?
"I refuse to see it because I read in Entertainment Weekly that it went into production 18 months ago."
Animated movies take even longer.
You're 15, right OP?
I agree with R7. Who cares how long a movie takes to be made, unless it's dated upon release. All I care about is the finished product. Regarding "Avengers" and other franchises, Hollywood sometimes holds them back for a suitable amount of time, thinking no one wants to see a sequel four months after it's predecessor. Such happened with the last two "Harry Potter" movies.
I wasn't talking about big budget films. It bothers me that a small film can take years before it is finally shown. I know big budget films will eventually make it to the theaters but those aren't the films I'm most interested in.
I think that's the OP's IQ, R9.
Go make a movie, then tell me how long it should take. For fuck's sake, OP.
