Yea, it’s not that easy.
With theaters expecting to run at 25% capacity, they'd have the run 4 times as many screenings to make their expected box office. And that is under the extremely unlikely assumption that people will be willing to go to the movies. I dont see any reality in which it is a good idea for the movie to come out on its release date.
Not like we should expect much from the Washington Post these days.
Ah but you're forgetting about all the right-wing stay-at-home protestors. They're the ones most likely to head out to the theaters as soon as they open. I say let them go if they want to.
And then come out and infect us too.
Looking at how much it took to stop people from going out before and during the lockdowns, I really think people are overestimating the fear among the general population of returning to places like theaters.
How weird would it be if all those people disobeying stay at home restrictions went out to see a mind bending movie like "Tenet"?
There are a LOT of people disobeying restrictions?
The issue from a business standpoint isn't the people that are willing to go, but the people who aren't. Even if half the normal audience is ready to rush out to the theater, that's half that's staying home. And most of these movies aren't going to be profitable if it is something like that. And there are no guarantees they even get half.
Given that movie theaters were barely surviving pre-Covid, I don’t know how they will make any money now with just 25% capacity.
The issue is that there was no fear before. Even if the fear only affects 20% of people that is a lot of revenue across the board, and of course it could be a lot worse than that.
If "Tenet" Fails, No New Films Until Xmas? - Dark Horizons
These indefinite delays are so stressful. "Antlers", "The Green Knight", "David Copperfield", "Promising Young Woman", "Woman in the Window", now this! All the movies I was most excited for are out floating in the void!
Also, I didn't realize that production on the "Wicked" movie has shut down AGAIN.
Not feeling the Positivity!
I wonder about all sorts of venues from sports stadiums to restaurants. Long term will real estate prices reflect more space gone fallow as the Surgeons General demand more space between people and refuse owners permission to bring in more like the Fire Marshal has traditionally done.
Wasn’t The Dark Knight banned in China back in 2008 because of the Chinese money launderer character?
Guess they've lightened up on that since then.
Surprising. I thought they were still very cautious with how characters from China are portrayed in Hollywood films.
It was banned in mainland China, but Hong Kong's censorship is separate from that. Another example is Internet where Hong Kong have little censorship compared to the rest of China.
Tenet feels like a weird choice for this but maybe it's just me. I do love Nolan but maybe it's being thrown to the wolves because it's not as important? Like "We're not risking a franchise film. Let Nolan release his sorta kinda blockbuster."
