Ben Affleck Doesnt Want to Do IP Films Any More ...

After a disappointing box office performance from Ridley ScottsThe Last Duel, Ben Affleck has decided to pursue IP-driven films. In a recent interview with The Playlist, the Batman actor talked about the future of filmmaking and how streaming has evolved into the preferred entertainment form.

Both The Last Dueland Affleck''s new dramaThe Tender Barwill soon be available on Netflix, which Affleck accepts as a result of the change in media consumption. I feel like this business has changed, and that is because of the streaming thing. You might have to change that situation. Then there was television. It''s continued to evolve and change, according to Affleck.

Instead of suit up as the Caped Crusader again, as he recently did forZack Snyders Justice Covidand with the streamers and the quality, they want to watch it [at] home.

The Last Duel was well-received by critics, but only grossed $30 million at the box office due to a budget of $100 million. Well, once I saw it, I thought, that is probably the final theatrical release I''ll have. Because I dont want to do IP movies, where you have this kind of built-in audience, he stated. That''s something I was interested in and liked, and I just didn''t like it anymore. If you are going to do it, you should love it

The Tender Bar will be available on Amazon Prime Video on January 7, 2022.
