Coronavirus Movie Theatre Reopening Thread | Release Date Changes/Production News | Theaters are dead. Long live streaming!

Recommended Posts

Props to WB for biting the bullet and taking the plunge. The normalization of returning to the theatrical experience has begun. OS markets should give hope that we will indeed return, soon. Not too far away.

 

Expecting to see a mad-dash scramble for release dates this coming week.

‘Bruh’ In the Can To Wrap Successful 4-Series Shoot At Tyler Perry Studios:

 

 

Quote

Since July 9 when the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta opened its doors for the cast of Sistas, Perry successfully filmed 82 episodes of his BET series Sisters and The Oval and BET+’s Ruthless and Bruh. 

 

Perry filmed new seasons of his series amid the coronavirus pandemic using a quarantine bubble model, sequestering cast and crew on the lot for the duration of a shoot.

 

Overall, there were 32 shoot days and 51 quarantine days total for the four series, with weeklong breaks between production of Sistas and The Oval as well as The Oval and Ruthless. (Perry and his crew stayed in continuous production after Ruthless to shoot Bruh.)

 

Perry’s quarantine bubble model involves check-in testing as cast and crew arrive at the studio, with everyone staying in their rooms until test results come back.

There were four positive tests (out of 360 people) during the check-in phase on Sistas, none of which involved cast, and a cast member of Ruthless tested positive during check-in.

 

But the bubble held up; there were no positive cases in camp once cast and crews had checked in and production started.

 

It's obvious movie theaters need new films to survive, but anything to expensive will lose money, yet if it feels too cheap/small, people will just stream/watch at home. So, the quick shoot bubble model is only going to work fof TV or one-location movies people would most likely end streaming.

The benefits of non-union and unpaid labor.

For sure, there is going to be one of those exposés about his terrible business practices that ends up sticking and cancels him, someday.

 

But daytime soaps are union and they film at a rapid pace. They have been back shooting for a minute, but the production values... I do think a bubble model would be feasible for certain kinds of horror movies without sacrificing quality (compared to how it would have turned out pre-Covid).

I think in order to convince American to go back to theater, the daily additional cases have to be under 10k. USA is 4 times higher than that now using 7 days average.   

And in many areas movie theaters are still closed by  the locla government.

With a big surge in the numbers a sure thing when cold weather begins. I don't see a return to "normal" until a vaccine is in use.

So far I don't see how weather is an covid factor given that brazil and india, way hotter countries than USA possessed any advantage.  

 

Even the summer in USA didn't see much help.

It's more that in the parts of the US that get hit with cold weather, people stay indoors way more. If they were self-isolating, this wouldn't be an issue, but in practical terms it means events that might be held outside now get moved inside.

It is still debated but humidity level seem to be a factor, in Hong-Kong-China study did seem to find much higher transmission with lower humidity (something many region will have indoor during the winters), some pointing out as big as a factor of x18 more transmission under certain humidity-temperature than other, it is easier for the water particle coming from an infected person to travel in the air if the air isn't already saturated in water:

 

Spain/Australia also had the same

 

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/tbed.13631

Temperature and relative humidity are known to be important factors in the spread of respiratory diseases. Several epidemiological and laboratory studies have found that temperature and relative humidity affect the spread of coronavirus‐related diseases, with both low temperature and relative humidity being suitable for the survival and transmission of coronavirus

 

 

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/gean.12241

Our results offer strong support for the hypothesis that incidence of COVID‐19 at the population level is lower at higher temperatures and levels of humidity: the estimated effect is a reduction in the neighborhood of 3% in incidence per each 1% increase in temperature, and a 3% reduction in incidence per 1% increase in humidity under conditions of contagion.

 

 

Obviously in a situation that very few measure are taken with everyone living in some extreme environment for transmission in India, that can become irrelevant, but as of now I think we are still in a situation that for everywhere it could have been worst.

 

Maybe it will take a full year circle once the virus is common (say until next july) to have a definitive idea on this. Vitamin C is still up in the air and overall more weakness in there immunity system people will tend to have during the natural flu season could also be a factor.

Cold is a factor because when the weather is cold, people get colds and the flu, they sneeze and cough a lot more, and that is how the Covid spreads.

The experts are certain that Covid will "Hitchike" on the normal spread of colds and the flu in the fall/winter deason.
