The Summer Blockbuster Flop

Hosted by
Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are warning that Hollywood is on the verge of a meltdown. They say that studio reliance on big budget action movies could doom them.  And so far this summer, there have been six major flops. So is the movie industry going through some soul searching? In Egypt, former president Mohammed Morsi has been jailed and charged with espionage. That’s prompted widespread demonstrations both for and against Morsi, and The Act of Killing opened last week in New York and today in Los Angeles. We talk to the director of the film, Joshua Oppenheimer.
