Heard on Campus: Matt McAllister on Hollywood's approach to sequels

April 16, 2010

"Movie producers have begun to automatically assume these superhero movies are going to turn into sequels. They think, 'Let's be efficient!' so they end up filming them at the same time."

--Matt McAllister, professor of communications, at the Research Unplugged discussion on Wednesday, April 14; a full-length recording of the event will be available on iTunes on Monday, April 19. Research Unplugged is an informal lecture series hosted by Penn State's Office of Research Publications and held at noon Wednesdays in Penn State's Downtown Theatre Center. The afternoon begins with a brief introduction of the topic, followed by an open floor for questions, comments and discussion. The event is free to the public. Complimentary coffee and light refreshments are served. For information, visit http://www.rps.psu.edu/unplugged/.
