  1. Different budgets and box office expectations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. 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
  4. NTTD may have a shot at being the only billion dollar film of 2020. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. What about the rest of world? China is a major market but it’s only one of several that are grappling with COVID-19. The Chinese have been fighting this thing since November of 2019, and are just now starting to recover. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Unfortunately, MGM and EON's decision to move NTTD's release is looking more prophetic and wise by the day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. No, I didn’t know what you were trying to say. It helps to actually just say what you mean like you did in the above post. You don’t know that there won’t be a mass quarantine or restrictions of public gatherings. The Chinese quarantined 50 million people for a couple of months so the scenario you say won’t happen did happen for one major country. It doesn’t take a 28 Days Later-style quarantine to cripple an economy or stop teenagers from going to the movies. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Whether or not we trust in the science, the fact is that the way in which governments and business are combating the spread of COVID-19 is impacting the entertainment business. The emergency response will continue to affect the entertainment business through the next several months. So, studios will have to adjust. It’s simply a practical matter. Also, don’t take offense, but to shrug your shoulders at the possible deaths of the young and old and sick is inhuman. Swap in Black or Jew as demographic descriptors to really hear how absurd your statement sounds. The responsibility of government
  9. Die Another Day is the exception with a release date of November 22nd, 2002. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Oh, I’m sure. Having it open over the Thanksgiving Holiday also helps. Now an $88-90m opening looks more like a possible $100m Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. We’re on the same page. They did the smart thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. That’s a good idea! They really only need to make a splash with one of those festivals to get buzz going. Given Bond’s international appeal, Venice may be the most logical and conducive to a warm welcome. See the Joker’s reception at Venice compared to TIFF. Could they even do a separate Bond film festival that dovetails into one of those other festivals with NTTD? Uni held a streaming concert just to premier the F9 trailer. Things could get creative.

  14. That’s assuming exhibitors (theater chains) have the capacity to take on another Blockbuster in the the middle of the Spring/Summer schedule. Also, if the consensus is that things will get worse before they get better then MGM was smart to push NTTD out as far into 2020 as is financially viable. Disney may not be able to move Mulan due to theater contracts and BW could still be moved. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. But the loss in gross wasn’t just from China. If it had, I’d think they would be releasing in April. But most, if not all, of South East Asia is shuttered. Also parts of Europe and the Middle East. They were looking at a $300m loss, at least. “...theaters across the world have been shuttered in recent weeks, stretching from Japan to Italy. That could have resulted in a minimum of 30 percent shaved off the final box office tallies — a possible $300 million out of a likely $1 billion global haul.” https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.hollywoodreporter.com/amp/news/mgm-take-30-million-hit-movin
  16. That’s a good point but in that comparison the question is whether enough was done in 2009 to prevent the death of 200,000 people worldwide. Do we want to accept that hundreds of thousand of people can die now because it happened before? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Let’s not conflate pre-production issues with this release date change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. This sucks but it was smart to do it now. Claim a desirable release ahead of any other major release being rescheduled. Plus, the anticipation could be a good thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. It sucks but it’s probably for the best in terms of the films financial viability. Also, this kinda adds to the anticipation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. This schedule assumes that the outbreak of COVID-19 is under control in fall/winter. https://www.google.com/amp/s/api.nationalgeographic.com/distribution/public/amp/science/2020/02/what-happens-to-coronavirus-covid-19-in-warmer-spring-temperatures They may be better off just pushing through to the current release date. No one knows so you’re asking them to make a decision on unknown scenarios. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. We’ll see in a month. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. David Lean? Lmao. Why not list Francis Coppola’s Godfather trilogy too? Yes, some of the recent big blockbusters have had long runtimes. What is being implied? Why does that fact matter? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
