Ecocriticism has only recently been fully accepted into the teaching of literature, with preference given to readings of transcendentalist authors and the writers of the American West. While it is, thus, a relatively young off-shoot of the theoretical revolutions of the final decades of the twentieth century, it has nevertheless started to reach out into new realms of textual sources. Glen Love's Practical Ecocriticism may serve as an example of this renewal of ecocriticism. Another current development within that school extends ecocritical tools to texts that have so far "belonged" to postcolonial discourse studies.
Cinema studies is a further area that, no doubt, will before long see a "greening" of its critical habits and language. Pat Brereton's Hollywood Utopia may very well be remembered in the future for having been one of the foundational texts of ecocritical cinema studies. Hollywood cinema does not necessarily evoke ecological politics, yet Brereton manages to show in his study how omnipresent nature on the big commercial-cinema screen introduces ecological themes into numerous blockbusters to create a sense of utopian longing.

Taking "the dearth of analysis of the utopian ecological themes" 12 as justification for his study, Brereton focuses on the frequent use within Hollywood movies of nature as a sanctuary that promotes ecological thinking. For the most part, his study consists of long sequences of--often somewhat short--readings of individual films. In these, Brereton shows how Hollywood films first stage a conflict between technology and the ecological environment and ultimately resolve that conflict in a way that reinforces the power of nature.
Drawing from deep ecology, the Gala hypothesis, and eco-feminist thinking, Brereton reads cinematic texts as mythological structures that include society's longing for a reunion with the natural environment.
