Hawke blasts movies running length

08 January 2010

Ethan Hawke is fed up with the length of modern day movies.

The Training Day star is stunned at Hollywood's new fascination with longer running times, and longs for the days when it was only epic films with an "important subject matter" that needed longer to tell their story.

He said, "I don't know what has happened to movies, but lately every movie is at least 20 minutes too long. It used to be that if you were three hours long it was because it was epic - a movie about Gandhi; something with very important subject matters.

"Now, it doesn't matter what you're making a movie about; everyone thinks their movie is so brilliant that it has to be three hours long. Not to be critical but... well, we all know which movies those are."

Hawke's new movie Daybreakers is out now.
