  1. This is, for lack of a better word, a sledgehammer of a film... Joaquin of course amazing, it's unsettling and frankly terrifying. Fantastic craft work - the score especially (can't get that chilling riff out of my head) and the cinematography, they really help elevate it all. I loved its take on Gotham's mythos - for all of its tonal 'elevation' above the CBM genre (hell, zero mention of DC except the end credits) it very wisely and interestingly integrates those wider universe elements (that I wouldn't be surprised if they come into play in the future). IMO though, it needed a subtler and more careful hand on it all, it got very much overbearing at times...but really dug what they attempted here and they almost got it there. Would love more out there films like this from WB/DC and the genre in general.
  2. For those wondering about RT Watch(TM) timings - embargo is up 7:15pm Central European time which is when the premiere screening begins. Social media reactions are officially under embargo too but some will always leak out so expect first word in around an hour and a half
  3. IMAX had nothing to do with the Tenet teaser, it was just assumed it was exclusive to IMAX screens when in reality it's just a case of WB wanting it so secret until the first US Hobbs and Shaw screenings that they only sent it to cinemas themselves mere hours beforehand. And of course when a trailer comes in like this last minute, when cinemas would have already programmed their trailer reels a few days beforehand (this is why Deluxe does the US and Canada national trailer shipments at the start of each week) only a few cinemas will actually go - hey maybe we should program this. Hobbs isn't a WB film so in these sorts of cases cinemas can just tell them to flip off. And that's what happened. WB only sent it out widely through the proper channels after the first weekend. Not to mention only rolling it out to international markets a couple weeks later in time for Tarantino. Anyway from what I understand and heard, the plan is indeed to have it cinema only with It 2. Then a longer online trailer in time to play with Joker. The trailer classification came from Germany which means unlike Tenet they do want to have it with It 2 in as many territories as possible from day 1. And because it's a WB trailer in front of a WB film, cinemas are far more likely to play it. Really short/little footage teasers like Nolan's or the Disney live action (they only do it because they can, just look at even how some here reacted to Aladdin for instance) or SW teasers don't have enough to make an online event splash. These two pieces (one from yours truly lol) break it down. Unfortunate but oh well. https://www.google.com/amp/s/trailer-track.com/2018/11/12/editorial-toy-story-4-and-are-teaser-trailers-dying-out/amp/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/scottmendelson/2019/08/19/chris-nolan-tenet-trailer-hobbs-shaw-star-wars-toy-story-aladdin-dark-knight/amp/
  4. FYI - UK is seemingly keeping full theatrical window. November 6 there including IMAX screens (which are all with major chains who'd refuse to play without the 16 weeks)
  5. Pushed back to February 2020 in the UK, would imagine US will follow suit https://www.dcm.co.uk/news/latest-film-release-changes-31-july-2019
  6. Now titled Dolittle. Sudden pivot to heartstrings/dead wife...darker than it probably was pre-reshoots?
