Not worth it to delude ourselves any longer, the tv series supersedes the cinema for a few years, either on a qualitative or on that of the risk-taking. And obviously, this is not about to change.
After that, it is a bit normal that this happens. The cinema takes less risks and thinks its franchises as a series pétées money, not making more than movies in a format that is episodic, with big climax at the end and sequences bonus that show us what will happen in the next episode.

So when Steven Spielberg announced his next project tele, obviously listening.
