  1. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8276207/BAZ-BAMIGBOYE-Jodie-Cromer-sweet-playing-Miss-Honey-Matilda.html “It's the big screen or nothing for Bond. The picture certainly won't be launched on a computer screen or an iPhone. 'If it has to wait till next year then so be it,' I was told by a close source. 'There are hundreds of millions of dollars involved here. Release it when audiences feel safe to return. But it's a nerve-racking call.' Meanwhile I'm hearing good things (as you would, I guess) from the tiny number of people lucky enough to have been allowed to see it.”
  2. Ha. Overreact much? It’s on track to be or match the biggest opening weekend for a Bond film. If it performs exactly like Skyfall then it’s a huge success. Bond films don’t open huge but they can have amazing multipliers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Casino Royale and Skyfall had amazing legs. With NTTD’s similar critical acclaim, I wouldn’t underestimate its potential performance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. To be fair, a marketing campaign was never attached to two of those previously announced release dates. But you bring up a good point about cash flow. I have to imagine that everyone involved (including MGM’s debt holders) see the logic and necessity in delaying NTTD theatrical release. There’s not really any good options, even with paid digital downloads, that can replace theater revenue. Assuming that advertising costs for the biggest films would stay the same for VOD, it’s cheaper than ever for studios to release films theatrically. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. There’s two ways a decision like this could go: It’s a great success for Disney that brings the rapid decline of theaters or it’s a moderate success that pushes theater owners to push back on Disney’s draconian rules for showcasing their films. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Maybe, but everyone is in the same position. With theme parks, movie theaters and current productions all shut down is Disney or Universal in any better position than MGM right now? If MGM’s plan is to use NTTD as leverage for a sale then sitting on a billion dollar earner with hundreds of millions in downstream media potential makes sense when it’s your only blockbuster. Unlike Disney and Uni, MGM isn’t juggling $100m+ loans for a half dozen (or more) unreleased films. Given worldwide events, January - March 2021 may be just as viable as April 2020 (pandemic notwithstanding) if NTTD has to move again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Maybe by late summer we’ll know whether NTTD has a shot at being the only billion dollar film in 2020. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. It seems that the devolving events of today was the tipping point Disney needed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
