Re: AMC, Regal Entertainment theaters, and Cinemark Theaters will not be showing IM3
While VOD is a great idea. Remember one thing. With that 5 people could watch it for 10-20 dollars. The studio would be losing money that it really needs on these blockbuster releases. If there was a way to not cheat the system and pay per each person viewing, then the studios would do it. That said, you'll probably see this happening more and more for indie and low to moderate budget Hollywood films. Just for blockbusters, it would be too risky at this point due to losing money per ticket depending on how many watch it.
That said, could the kinnect technology work? it senses movement, perhaps it can sense the number of people as well in the future?
