  1. Yeah movie theaters aren't gonna be able to last a year at this point and who knows how much movies will make in Summer 2021. Definitely won't be anywhere close to what they'd be making pre pandemic.
  2. I think this pandemic has changed the landscape of Cinema for the next decade. I don't think we'll see another billion dollar gross in a movie till maybe 5-6 years from now. Even when a vaccine is found, people just won't feel safe. Holding these films hostage for who knows how long is dumb. At some point you're gonna have to just release it because even if it's released in May of 2021, you're no longer guaranteed to make the amount of money you would pre-pandemic. I don't think studios understand that and just assume if they push and push the date then it means their film has a chance to gross more.
  3. Completely agree and we all know that after The Hunger Games, the GA became tired of this kind of story. Hence why after THG every other book series that tried this flopped.
  4. Really meh all around especially with all the hype surrounding it. Aside from visuals, really lackluster. This has bomb written all over it especially if it sticks with it's release date.
  5. I think it's time we accept the facts that unless a movie is PVOD, there's no benefit for any studio to release films in 2020. This would have easily been a 100+ gross pre CO-VID but things won't be normal till even late 2021. Studios are going to have to make some tough choices. WW1984 cannot come out now, not with these numbers.
  6. You could also watch some great anime as well. For example One Piece is 1000 + episodes and well it's perfect if you're quarantined.
  7. I think the studios have to just bite the bullet and put their movies on streaming. Have a $30-40 pay wall and call it a day. Cause all these postpones are getting crazy and it makes me kind of cringe that Disney is using Mulan as an experiment into whether or not to move Black Widow. A movie that's budget is over 200 million dollars solely being used as an experiment is really a weird move on Disney's part.
  8. I do think Coronavirus is definitely an influence at the box office domestically. Movies that only made a million dollars over the course of 3 days made it into the top 10. That's not a good sign of theater attendance.
  9. I will say at least in my family we usually watch all the Disney new releases together and I asked them are we gonna go see this one and they said absolutely not. They don't want to go anywhere with large crowds. We also live in Tampa where there are confirmed 5 cases of the virus. Instead we binge watched Love is Blind. The streaming services must be doing great numbers thanks to this virus.
  10. In all seriousness I think it's time for people including the president to see that this magically will not go away in April. This is not going away any time soon and the only way you can protect yourself is by washing your hands. The impact this has made to our global economy has already been seen. Look at the stock market crashing and in a positive way look at the significant decrease in pollution in China. Until a cure is found, nothing is going to change. The movie theatre business is just one of the many businesses having to deal with the situation. I do hope though that many countries lead by what China, Japan, and Korea are doing. They pay the people they quarantine a living wage.
  11. This doesn't make any sense. Trump said the cases would go down to zero by April, how can he be wrong!?
  12. How much do we estimate Heroes Rising is tracking for? Especially cause WB came out recently and said they want to do a live action version of MHA. Granted it is limited release.
  13. It's lower then all 3 of them critics wise and audience wise it hasn't even reached half of both of these. It's still way too early to judge reception.
  14. I don't think Sonic will perform well OS. It's not a big property at all not to mention Asia is dealing with a serious health crisis and nobody is preoccupied with going to the movies. Maybe South America may help but that was supposedly a big place for BOP and that didn't help jack.
  15. Bro your film has already had about 20 different director changes. And Detective Pikachu lifted the curse of video game films. Seems the only goal Uncharted has in mind is not to get made. Also his quote... Tom check your source material again.
  16. Birds of Prey is entirely different situation. The marketing for that film was atrocious and led to many controversial headlines that turned people off from the film. They also screwed up entirely by making it Rated R when a lot of Harley's demographic is teens. Many poor decisions resulted in Birds of Prey's poor box office performance. History and what actually happened. Sonic is looking towards a 45 million opening weekend. 55 with Presidents day added to that. Pikachu did 55 million on it's 3 day OW. Without President's Day Sonic would be opening at 45 million. The following week if Sonic was in Pika's slot was JW3 followed by Aladdin followed by Godzilla. It would not have survived. The other savior of this film is the poor release slots around it. The worst grossing DCEU film, a pixar film with barely any buzz, and a movie that is targeted at a country that doesn't care about going to the movies at the moment cause of a health crisis and it's turned off a lot of people domestically cause it's erasure of many things that made the original film what it was.
  17. Literally the only place where Pika's numbers are considered disappointment is this forum. Anywhere else the film is considered a success. Sonic wouldn't survive where Pikachu was and that's a fact. DP was on track with what WB predicted it would make and it was easily there most successful non R rated film of the year. Anyways Paramount needs this cause they haven't gotten much in the W column and this is a breathe of fresh air for them.
  18. There's been a lot of Sonic V Pika literally in every thread. The last 3 pages of the Sonic thread for example. Paramount having a hit is what matters. Any studio besides Disney being successful is a good thing.
