  1. France getting 'previews' from the Monday (Aug 24) and there's been a couple DOM venues saying 'sneaks' from Mon Aug 31
  2. Indeed but America may be the only country where they have to do this in the first place due to the situation there.
  3. 3 things with that Tenet PVOD thing 1. Will major chains go for it? Any discussion of it now would require a similar deal to Universal/AMC, which Regal publicly told Uni to fuck off with basically and Cinemark is ambivalent. Now if Tenet underperforms below even the COVID adjusted expectations in open states on Labor Day.... 2. WB's release plan for the US - it may very well end up taking *longer* than 3 weeks for NY/LA to get it. What's the point of putting it on PVOD before the major markets get it (given the positioning of the release as an olive branch to cinemas) 3. Nolan - seems to believe in the 90+ day as a matter of principle. They could also just...do what Universal and others are doing - PVODing it through iTunes, Amazon etc. Only Disney has set the watermark by doing PVOD on their own SVOD service. And perhaps only just in the US while rest of world gets it traditionally.
  4. Masks in cinemas in the UK compulsory by law from next weekend. Guessing except eating/drinking...
  5. "Universal cannot announce a film will launch on PVOD platforms until after the second weekend of its theatrical release" - interesting...
  6. Or, obviously COVID notwithstanding...you just go to the cinema? The price is that high on purpose, to still incentivise people to go to the cinema.
  7. Independent and arthouse cinemas have been contending with day and date for years and have...actually found ways to still compete? Hell here in the UK an arthouse chain has been driving the whole boat for the better part of a decade in the indie sphere. 'All tentpoles all the time' aside what this is really moving towards is theatres being a premium experience for enthusiasts. More expensive, less accessible locations wise, but higher quality of both the experience and the audience....
