How bad is the situation expected to be in 2-3 weeks?

 

Hmmm .... looks like it's not about to get any better.

Very bad timing, since local tentpoles are set to return to cinemas in August.

Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard and Peter Rabbit 2 both postponed last week.

We might lose out on Black Widow as well.

Lost about 45% showtimes from pandemic peak (at the opening of F9).

 

COVID-19 spiraling out of control.

As the result of partial cinema (re)closures, F9 took a brutal 70% dive in its second week.

And things are about to get worse since malls will be instructed to close at 5pm, effectively eliminating weekday shows.

With only daytime weekend shows, I wonder whether the cinemas will opt to stay open.

Man, this market has really had a brutal time in terms of number of serious covid waves.

 

This last re-closure is especially heartbreaking, since we are in a clear recovery path from GVK - MK - AQP2 - C3 - F9.

Hard restrictions implemented since 3 July 2021.

Only cinemas outside of Java and Bali now open - that's only about 25% of all screens.

Number of showtimes back to November 2020 level.

 

I don't know how we'll survive this.

Late June postponed titles:

  • Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard
  • Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway

 

We already a had a bunch of DCPs ready for July:

  • The Forever Purge
  • The Boss Baby: Family Business
  • Black Widow
  • Space Jam: A New Legacy
  • Escape Room: Tournament of Champions

While local blockbusters were slated to return beginning August.

 

This new hard restriction period is supposed to last until 20 July, but I seriously doubt it will happen. The target was to lower the number of daily new case to fewer than 10k while now, 3 days in, the number keeps rising and is now 30k.

 

Exhibitors are looking at 28 July for a return, but let's see

UPDATE

 

Indonesian cinemas set for second reopening on September 14th.

Full vaccination will be mandated, 50% capacity implemented, F&B prohibited.

 

We have a whole of Hollywood backlog to clear out, so let's see what comes out first. I know for a fact that Black Widow and Space Jam: A New Legacy DCP's are being prepared for the initial part of reopening.

Later on stuff like Free Guy, The Suicide Squad and Shang-Chi will follow.

 

Stay tuned.

For the rest of September:

  • SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS
  • SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY
  • NO TIME TO DIE

 

As kids under 12 cannot go (no vaccines for them yet) it's movies like Space Jam that is going to be difficult.

Kids under 12 aren’t at much risk, they should just be exempt from vaccine requirements. That’s how most countries are doing it afaik. Oh well.

Yes, started yesterday (Saturday) for the shows on its opening day. I don't have the raw numbers, but from what I'm seeing, it's doing really good.

Doing great in the usual geek-friendly locations, OK for the rest.

Big issue for Shang-Chi:

  • Most sites still only have 3 showtimes per day
  • No Time to Die coming in just a week after
