  1. October 2023 will be a near-replica of this October title-wise. An untitled Sony/Marvel movie (likely Venom 3), a new David Gordon Green horror movie with Exorcist, and another Dune. Only thing missing is a new Bond movie.
  2. The distance between Turning Red and this is a good space right now to avoid family competition, I don't know if they'd want to move closer to it. The current date also keeps a close proximity to the Easter holiday. Paramount already moved their own The Lost City up to that date, so they probably reached the same conclusion that this one should stay on the 8th.
  3. Not to be too technical, but didn't The New Mutants beat both of them to that? 😏
  4. Idk, not bold enough tbh. If someone starts a Sonic 2 dom > FB3 dom x2 I’m down. Half of the first film’s gross w/o covid cutting the legs would’ve been like.. $80-85m? If Sonic 2 does even somewhat similar business to the first and if FB3 crashes like Dark Phoenix or the later Terminator movies, it can be done.
  5. If anything, I would've moved up King's Man. It would've been a nice title to have during this slow September period. Think it could've slotted into September 17 without hurting much, if any, of Shang-Chi's business.
  6. I'm also noticing some surprisingly strong sales for Paw Patrol. In fact, it's selling better at the same point than Boss Baby 2 was around here. Am similarly thinking it'll be a double digit opening.
  7. I felt Dalton ended on a strong note, even if unintentional and only the second of a 2-movie run. Licence to Kill is great.
  8. Normally I would think so too, but they also pulled it from the TIFF lineup. If it was ready to go and still set to release on streaming, not sure why they would've put a stop to the TIFF premiere.
  9. Yup. Completely anecdotal evidence, but I’ve talked with quite a few people that would be considered part of the GA who are absolutely wanting to go back to the movies, but they shrug and decide to wait after they see the mediocre lineup of movies playing. There really aren’t enough big, top-tier titles playing and coming out consistently.
  10. Shouldn't additional costs for back-end deals also be considered here though? Given that's what HBO Max had to do, I'm assuming Disney's doing something similar. Also, doesn't Disney tend to get closer than 60% on a traditional theatrical release, as opposed to the 50% they're giving here (I believe I read from Deadline that's what Disney is doing as some sort of incentive for theaters to play a day-and-date title)? Additionally, as has been mentioned, the worldwide theatrical window isn't the only one hurt here, as the later home video windows are also damaged, so the differences in costs/rev
  11. I don't think comments and posts on Reddit are indicative of what the general public thinks. Reddit tends to be a bit of a bubble, especially among the subs within it. Of course people on r/hometheater are gonna be more interested in Premier Access than a theatrical viewing, that just seems to be a biased source.
  12. What I think Jat's trying to say (and he can correct me if I'm wrong) is that he views PA as truly a success only if it ends up grossing a bunch without hurting the home video windows down the line, thus that would result in increasing overall revenues instead of re-allocating or decreasing them.
  13. The idea being that people who paid for BW on D+ for $30 would be less willing to pay for it again for the same experience at home, therefore potentially weakening the later home video windows of the title.
