I'd say $20 is a waste of fuckin' money if we're about head into a recession, ESPECIALLY if you've got a family. Save that shit, you might need it.

Never underestimate a morale booster for a family worried about the apocalypse.

The median american married couple with children tend to be among the richest entity on earth:

That paid way more to see Avatar in 3D and pop-corn when well into a recession. Significantly more than half of them are millionaires (that could change quick too like in 2008).

Makes sense. These days if people aren't significantly well off they pretty much can't afford to have children at all. I know several of my married couple friends would like to but just can't so they're on strict birth control.

i just noticed that when going into the "upcoming films" section of what new films are playing at my local this friday they are... little women, rise of skywalker, jumanji 3 and spies in disguise.

As someone who fall squarely in that demo, I can tell you it is BS. Significantly more than half of US couples with children have next to no net worth. Between credit card debt, student loans and the exorbitant cost of the US for-profit health care system (the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US is medical bills) the reality is very different than these charts imply. For every couple like Bill and Melinda Gates, there are ten couples struggling to make ends meet on a weekly basis.

 

Any studio exec that green-lights the release of their blockbuster during this time is a complete idiot. The stock market is crashing, a depression is looming (COVID-19 is just the fuse that's lighting the bomb of underlying terrible financial data) and feces is hitting the forced air ventilator. Even without bans, people are not going to see movies any time soon.

Yeah new movies will be seen by many together as theaters are shut so $20 is a good rental price. They have to recover the budget just from non-theatricals release.

For the first time in a long time, I actully beleived something Donald Trump said; when he admitted "it's bad" and said the crisis might last into the summer.

$20 for a rental is absurd

I think they should have shot for a $10 price point...but we'll see in a few weeks if they bet right on the number...

To take three kids to see it would typically cost almost 50 bucks.

Nah - you gotta price based on Tuesday numbers - and that family would be $20 then (with 1 parent) - and since there's no cost to anyone except the limited streaming cost, families will expect a break on the number...$10 would have been the ideal price point, I think...again, especially since these movies aren't the Avengers...

There’s no one else in the market... 

 

$20 for a family of four to watch Trolls isn’t a good deal?? $20 for a couple to watch The Hunt isn’t a good deal?

 

I disagree 

I disagree, matey

$20 for four people to watch a brand new film at home, that would cost them $40-50 at the cinema isn’t a good deal?

Married is an important variable, but what being part of that demo tell us ? And would you say the same for your parents if they lived all life together ?

Yes chart that plot average can be misleading, but those are median, 50% are above that figure, 50% below, the Gates move a median graph 10 times less than the ten couple struggling
