‘Wonder Woman’ Director Patty Jenkins Cautions Film Closure ‘Won’t Be a Reversible Cycle’s
The “Wonder Woman 1984” director Patty Jenkins has warned that closing films down and getting audiences far from movie theaters “won’t be a reversible cycle.”
“We could lose movie theater-going perpetually,” said Jenkins in a meeting with news organization Reuters.
