  1. Indonesia is listed as one of the countries where TENET will open first: 26 August. However, the government has issued no statement allowing cinemas to reopen, so WB really knows a lot. 😎 There is an ongoing discussion about having the reopening sometime in August, but nothing formal has come out of it. Not yet. Hopefully soon.
  2. Indonesian cinema reopening postponed due to a massive wave of backlash. Intensive negotiations underway but I don't see a compromise being made anytime soon.
  3. Thank you for your interest in Indonesia!
  4. Indonesia will also have that INCEPTION anniversary reissue. Hopefully with the WB sizzle reel.
  5. CONFIRMED Indonesia cinemas reopen 29 July 2020 Reopening week slate: Import movies: Unhinged, Trolls World Tour Plus two local movies.
  6. Update: it is now looking to be either 30 July or 3 August
  7. Indonesia was just tying to set course for 15 July reopening (slight delay from 6 July, for obvious reasons). Now, back to uncertainty.
  8. Indonesia gearing up for reopening on the week of 6 July. Foreign titles (all TBC of course) UNHINGED TROLLS WORLD TOUR DIGIMON ADVENTURE EYES ON ME a bit later, PENINSULA
  9. Tentative cinema reopening date for Indonesia: 6 July. Again, virus be damned is the overall approach.
  10. Two months since my last post. All cinemas in the country are still closed. I do a continuous update on my Twitter account regarding cinema reopening readiness all over the world. Sadly, Indonesia is still one of the worst impacted. However, it looks more likely that we will open our cinemas on July, after nearly 4 months of complete shutdown. The "economy needs to be restarted, virus be damned" school of thought is seemingly gaining more traction. Let's see about one month from now.
  11. Today, March 26th. Only about 100 cinema screens are open, all at reduced capacity and showtimes. Less than 4% of national capacity. We are bracing for the peak. Stay safe everyone.
  12. Indonesia is approaching a near-lockdown situation. More and more cities are closing schools and offices. Cinemas recently included. Some local tentpoles have delayed their releases with more to follow. The government has declared state of emergency until 29 May. The total number of daily showtimes (normally upwards of 10K) has dropped significantly in the past 4 days. Expect an even steeper drop Monday, when capital Jakarta closes all cinemas. Stay safe everyone.
  13. I just noticed that Indonesia's two largest cinema chain, XXI and CGV, have also changed Birds of Prey title in their website and booking app. Meanwhile, The Gentlemen and Brahms: The Boy II opened yesterday. The Call of the Wild will follow tomorrow. The next big one will be Sonic on the 26th. Videogame adaptations may be associated with box office failures in general, but in Indonesia the last 6 movies (Warcraft to Detective Pikachu, 2016 to 2019) ALWAYS breaks 1 million admission. Too bad I can't attend the premiere screening tonight.
  14. Unfortunately, screens are practically nonexistent now, crushed by local blockbuster Milea: Suara Dari Dilan. This movie passed 2M admission on Tue, heading for the vicinity 3M by this weekend or shortly after. Its predecessor, Dilan 1991, once held the opening day record for Indonesia, beating Avengers: Infinity War. I tweeted about it and got quoted by Deadline.
