The Minister of culture of Russia Vladimir Medinsky said that the “world machine of Hollywood” will destroy the domestic film industry, if the authorities do not take measures for its protection. He called for the restriction of hire of the American films in the country, reports RIA Novosti.
Medina pointed to the movie “Fantastic beasts: Crime green de Wald”, which, according to him, in some days of November was more than 70 percent of all sessions. “I am outraged that two-thirds of the sessions were given to a single film. It is not a monopoly, a total monopoly of Hollywood film distributors, which dictates the conditions to cinema chains?” the Minister stressed.
The head of the Ministry of culture noted that the film was not looking.
Tape “Fantastic beasts: Crime green de Wald” was released on November 15. It tells the story of an evil wizard who along with supporters is going to subdue people without magical abilities. He opposed the heroes of the first part of the franchise, the film “Fantastic beasts and where they live”.
