  1. I have to be honest, I'm not particularly interested in this movie anymore and I wonder how many other people feel the same. Black Widow is a fine character but this is not a game changer type film like say a Black Panther 1 or 2 being delayed, it's set in the past right after Captain America Civil War which came out almost 5 years ago and the character is dead in the current timeline so there's minimal stakes involved which means I personally can't get too invested in whatever happens in it. Now I'm not saying the movie is gonna be bad, it will likely end up being just fine, but it needs to just be released at some point. How much longer can you wait? How much of the general audience is still interested in this enough to go out of their way to see it?
  2. It may be the best monsterverse movie compared to the other ones but that doesn't make it a great movie on its own merits. Just like how Bumblebee was arguably the best live-action transformers movie but I saw a lot of people saying it's a fairly average movie with a bit too many cliches. In a normal year I don't think this movie would have done too well anyway. Current hype aside, I don't know how much the average domestic viewer cares about Kong and Godzilla fighting each other but I could be wrong.
  3. Warner Brothers certainly are quitters when the going gets tough, I mean (for now) they're still planning on making 5 Fantastic Beasts movies and The Flash movie has been though development hell but it's apparently gonna start shooting in a few months. They'll only let go of something as a last resort and Wonder Woman still seems worth it to continue in some way.
  4. I imagine they're exploring their options/keeping them open. The Fantastic Beasts movies are on thin ice and perhaps they want to start putting their eggs in more than one basket. Perhaps there are some rumblings of letting other creators besides JK Rowling make content in that world? Although the article did say that this guy Tom will be working with Rowling and her reps, so even though he's stated to be an "overseer" how much power does he really have? Just seems like he's an intermediary at best and doesn't have much executive power, I could be wrong.
  5. I've been thinking this for a while. The Coronavirus could be seen as a blessing in disguise for some movies that came out this year, in a normal year something like Scoob or an Artemis fowl would not have done well at the Box Office but putting them on streaming saved studios some embarrassment. Streaming is gonna become more viable for certain movies with uncertain box-office potential in the coming years.
  6. Pretty rough that this dropped on Christmas Eve. Among the biggest reveals in there are that Olivia Wilde fired him from her movie for being a jerk (sounds like she has no time for any of that) and replaced him with Harry Styles and that he was being strongly considered for an MCU movie. Pity that he's apparently ruined a potentially good comeback story. Shia has had many issues throughout the 2010s and even earlier I'm sure. I believe he got arrested at some point, that time he wore a paper bag on his head during a red-carpet premiere, etc. I'm glad Olivia Wilde stood her ground and fired him and hopefully we start seeing that happen more often when an actor/actress can't behave. Tbh I thought Shia was actually turning things around but it seems like it'll be a while before he gets his shit together.
  7. I believe they actually did end up changing the title to Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey like a few days or a week after the movie released, but yeah they got too fancy with the original title and I wasn't particularity impressed with the marketing which I found unusual as I think Warner Brothers is usually great at making trailers for their movies.
  8. In addition to messing up their DC stuff their attempt to revive the Harry Potter/wizarding world IP in the past few years has not gone as well as they hoped, with those lackluster Fantastic Beasts movies and the involvement of controversy-glutton JK Rowling. Warner Brothers has been fumbling around a lot lately and occasionally they'll score a few wins, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see what comes of this bold move. As the saying goes "expect the unexpected".
  9. I do find it funny how there are so many people online going "You can't put Godzilla vs Kong on streaming. It has to be on the big screen only!" ,acting like that last movie King of the Monsters was so beloved when instead it flopped and got crap reviews from audiences and critics alike. And now all of the sudden y'all wanna get on board this monsterverse train again lol I got nothing against these movies but it's funny how fickle people can be.
  10. That makes sense, and tbh I don't think this movie would do too well box office-wise under normal circumstances anyway. King of the Monsters flopped despite having good trailers and seemingly attempting to offer fans more monsters that the 2014 Godzilla but there just wasn't enough interest from the general audience. Those who skipped King of the Monsters might be more inclined to watch this now that it'll come to streaming. I do understand the spectacle aspect of wanting to watch something like this on the big screen but I do feel like putting this on HBO max is a good move, and likely the first of many big budget movies they'll put on there in the coming years.
  11. I'm sure he'll still be hanging around for a while. Hollywood does love giving out multiple chances. He'll just lay low for a bit and do some small movies, a new decade means a new opportunity to reinvent oneself. Maybe he'll pull an Adam Sandler and do something like Uncut Gems soon. I'm usually a "never say never" kind of person so who knows how things will turn out, anybody's guess.
  12. The film/entertainment business at times has considerable ignorance on the realities of the rest of the world.
  13. Honestly, I feel like the first half of next year is not gonna be good for box office as well, may not be until next fall that things improve significantly. Not sure how much longer they can kick this can down the road, other studios too might have to swallow their pride and make changes as well. It's amusing/fascinating to watch how some people can adapt and others just wait it out until they could/can catch a break.
  14. At this point it seems like next year is gonna be a bust in terms of any big movie looking to gain profits in theaters. So many studios are gonna keep playing the "kick the can down the road" game until they have no other option but to just release their stuff on one streaming service or another. A lot of executives are gonna have to rip-off some band-aids in the coming future, this pandemic aint gonna be over for a while no matter how badly they (or anybody else) wants it to be. I'm personally not comfortable with going to a theater for a long while, the last movie I saw in theaters was Rise of Skywalker and it may remain that way for another year or so, until a real serious vaccine is ready(which I know takes a while). And I'm sure plenty of casual folks feel the same way as well.
