The Oscars are just considering this so they don’t have to nominate Sonic The Hedgehog.
Just give Gary Oldman, David Fincher, and Mank all of the Oscars.
What would be nominated, and how would they be held anyway? Huge Zoom conference call?
Damn. Y'all know that was the real reason Nolan was dead set on Tenet's release - he'd finally get that Oscar.
If it's the only film playing for 6 months he would have been a certainty.
I feel like this is unnecessary, and really unfair to the movies that do get released this year. Even if they don't think they can handle the ceremony, they ought to find a way to make it work. Especially since they gave an exemption for the theatrical run requirement. At the very least, that adds Bad Education into the mix as well as movies like Da Five Bloods and Mank. I want to see Hugh Jackman and Gary Oldman throw down for Best Actor!
Hmm...interesting. Could we possibly see the end of moviegoing? I’d say the answer to that question is a resounding no, and once a vaccine is finally developed attitudes will lean more positively in seeing a movie in theaters than just seeing it at home however I think this might prove to be a problem for movies still slated to open this year. Take Black Widow for example if theaters are indeed open by fall then there’s no guarantee it’ll do bank especially if theaters do stuff like limit audience attendance capacity to 50%, and I’m not sure if theaters will be widely be open even by fall. Not to mention a lack of vaccine contributing to the apprehension of heading to the movies. Audiences by in large aren’t likely to risk their health just to watch a feature in a dark room with strangers even if it is for the big event movies like WW84 and BW. I could be wrong, though.
This is quite interesting, but it’s no surprise seeing that we’re going through trying times right now: This pandemic has cost jobs and lives — which makes people feel they could use a little lightness to escape the darkness of these times. I’m a little worried about how much this hurts independent movies. I’m starting to suspect those type of cinema won’t be seeing as much theatrical distribution as they used to. I think theaters will become almost exclusively comedies and blockbuster movies going forward, at least for awhile.
I only go to the theaters for blockbusters anyway (as do most of the general audience). So...that’s fine with me.
Not like they used to be though. I am 31 and i can remember when it would take like 9-12 months for movies to go from theaters to dvd and would be in theaters for like 5-6 months. Now its like 3-4 to go from theaters to dvd and most movies around were i live are only in theaters for about 1.5-2 months. The last time i can remember a movie being in theaters for like 4-5 months or so was the first frozen movie was like 5 months.
I'm the type of person who would be in theatre all the time if I didn't have certain....obstacles. No one is going to going to drive me to see some indie art house picture lol.
I'm lucky to see the movies I do in theatres.
And since the old days movies have been released in different nations first, not to shield fans from spoilers but rather to slow down the pirates from making films available on your home TV, thus cutting the money.
But that tells us that for many it is not the theatre, it is the waiting for fresh content that gets us to go to the dark room and big crowds
These polls are worthless. I bet you’d have the same percentage from the same people 5 years ago saying the same thing.
I’d like to see how many of those polled were actually going to the theatre beforehand anyway. What are the age groups. Their moviegoing habits. Etc.
Here's my thing about these polls. How actually reliable is the sample size? They are surveying maybe what in the hundreds, maybe thousands?
That's a drop in the bucket.
The idea of the Oscars being held this year is a joke. Barely anything has even been released digitally even. This isn't the1930s.
Coinciding with the launch of the new Tenet trailer? Not a coincidence.

I think if Tenet gets pushed back, signifying movies aren't coming back this year, you'll suddenly see a deluge of content being released VOD.
I'm waiting for new dates and it seems like we haven't gotten any from the big studios since The New Mutants' 5th release date.
I'd be surprised if Mulan really opens next month. The marketing for it has been non existent since it was delayed.
