  1. If they're smart, they push it to open about a few weeks after Black Widow comes out. Unless another major blockbuster moves ahead of that film, it is not only going to be the first major blockbuster in theatres, but also the one that has the biggest chance of bringing audiences back to cinemas. Obviously if Black Widow either fails or underperforms this gives EON/MGM more time to push it and reevaluate their position. And if Black Widow is a success, then NTTD will be the first major blockbuster to ride the wave that it will unleash and won't have to compete with the other held back 2020 films.
  2. That isn't the problem, what is the problem is that WB/AT&T are going to pointlessly lose a ton of money by doing this and as a consequence hundreds of people will lose their jobs as a result. Studios will absolutely tighten their belts when it comes to the people who will still have jobs but trust me, it isn't going to be rich A-list actors or studio executives who are going get their pay cut.
  3. "Legendary financed a significant portion of “Dune,” which cost roughly $175 million." https://variety.com/2020/film/news/legendary-entertainment-warner-bros-hbo-max-deal-dune-godzilla-1234847605/ Lol. Everyone who said that WB were definitely not going to repeat the mistakes of Blade Runner 2049 and give this movie a massively inflated budget owes me money. :Edit: They did do the smart thing though and made this PG-13.
  4. lol. It rules how this year every major studio has experimented with multiple different ways of releasing movies that aren't just full theatrical runs only to learn time and again that this is the only way to make money. Tenet will have lost its studio at least $100+ million and it will still be the most profitable western blockbuster of the entire pandemic.
  5. From Drew's newsletter. "When Apple TV+ comes to the table with a $600 million check (one of the numbers I’ve heard is actually higher than that) for a one-year exclusive window on a film, that’s a number that you have to pay attention to, no matter what your history and no matter how much you cherish the theatrical experience." "This is the big one for MGM. This movie is make or break for a studio that has basically been playing a financial shell game for years. It’s amazing that MGM has the legacy it does considering how long it has been limping along as a barely-functioning production entity." "When your last film in the franchise made just over $800 million worldwide, and someone’s offering you almost that much for a single streaming window? That’s a conversation you have." https://drewmcweeny.substack.com/p/could-james-bond-really-die-at-home
  6. This movie can easily move to December 2021, regardless of Spiderman 3. That movie hasn't even set filming dates yet; this one is already a third of the way done with shooting.
  7. Let's be real here, the first half of next year is still looking incredibly dicey. The schedule will still be in flux until at least the third or fourth quarter of 2021, guarantee it.
  8. I think my main problem with the Dune trailer is one that has plagued a lot of recent underperforming sci-fi blockbusters; it already expects the audience to know and care about the plot, world, and characters of the property it's adapting. Time and again, studios (especially this one) keep mistaking the heaps of attention and praise they get from geeks and stans for something that will translate into significant real world numbers. It rarely does.
  9. The Daily Mail is reporting that filming began last week. (Normally I'd take it with a grain of salt because it's the Mail, but they included pictures and actual details so I figured it was worth posting here.) https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8654371/Tom-Cruise-58-leaps-speeding-motorbike-action-shot-Mission-Impossible-film.html
  10. lol. As with all pre-release PR for blockbusters, the more accurate quote would be "we made sure to film most everything with practical effects... that we used as reference footage for the 1,500 VFX shots we ended up creating in post".
  11. 👀 <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Happy 25th anniversary, MORTAL KOMBAT.

  12. You do realize that not all of those movies will be staying there, right? Not only are this year's movies still being pushed back but most of the ones scheduled for 2021 and 2022 haven't even finished/started production yet.
