    Last I remember, it was simply postponed and not outright cancelled.

    Although I do think Disney is banking on this to lose money (quite the oxymoron statement :funny:) seeing as we're about 3 weeks out, and still no media rounds with the cast to promote the film. To be honest I was more excited to see Liu Yifei doing press promotion, possibly at late night talk shows, than the movie itself, but I guess it's probably not happening, with corona and her HK statements :shrug:

    What if the reviews aren't good? If China release is delayed for months and the reception isn't great how much is that going to affect things over there for release? This is kinda uncharted waters.

    :ilv::ilv:

    I do wonder if there's gonna be an English version, or if they will play in non-Chinese releases as well.

    I really love what I'm hearing from these reviews, but I still have major trepidations about handing it my money given the star's role as an authoritarian propaganda piece.

    Wait for a home release, then.

    That's a big nope based on this article:

    'Mulan' star Yifei Liu's 'Reflection' shines beside Christina Aguilera

    Sounds like the only English version will be Christina Aguilera's.


    So the credits will go

    Christina's
    Yifei Liu's version

    Well Quiet Place 2 has been delayed. Let's see how big Disney's balls are.

    I don't think it's a matter of "balls", probably of prudence.

    You'd think they would take this opportunity to use their brand new streaming service...

    They’d lose more money in the long run releasing it on their streaming service than just delaying it.

    Besides, there’s deals and contracts in place with theatres and cast/crew. It’s not like they can just do something like that.

    Quiet Place 2 postponed its release a week before opening. You can't tell me Disney can't do that with a bigger buffer time before release. With China already postponing it, and every big movie so far moving the heck outta these 2 months, Disney's had more than enough time to pull any triggers, unless they're counting on sacrificing Mulan.

    Ffs. I was really really looking forward to Antlers. That's a small film so maybe Disney will do a streaming release for it. It's not as if they need that movie to be a box office giant.

    As "small" as it might be, I still wanna see Antlers on the big screen.

    I understand there are probably contracts in place and all but you would think there's some kind of clause covering natural disasters or heath issues that would give Disney an out to release it on Disney+. God knows they need new content on there.

    It is not a question of an out. It is a question of why would they burn the money they would get from a theatrical release.

    Do movie theater chains get a cut of the theatrical release earnings? How much comes from concessions?
