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

Recommended Posts

Nobody just moved up a week (although that also gets it out of the way from going up against Godzilla vs. Kong) so I wonder if we're about to see a wave of titles move up their dates with the news (albeit ones that wouldn't result in packed auditoriums meaning nothing like Black Widow). Peter Rabbit 2 seems like a good candidate to return back to that Easter weekend since it was weeks from opening when everything shut down last year.

Nah, Nobody just moved up to get its clear opening weekend and to get the double spring break week (HBO Max realized its films are really only going huge 1 weekend, so it took the biggest one of spring).

 

Although I did think Peter Rabbit would be the best case for testing the reopening waters - once Disney clears out its May schedule to hybrid or delay, I could see it trying to open summer on Memorial Day since pure kid films have had the most staying power...

Cruella is currently set for Memorial Day weekend and is clearly getting some sort of theatrical release even if it's a hybrid one, so they won't move it to there. Ideally A Quiet Place 2 would be the perfect movie to test the waters since it's not super expensive and was less than 10 days from opening when the world fell apart, but I doubt they'll movie it back in that April spot. Maybe it'll be Free Guy assuming it sticks with its current mid-May date.

Yeah, I see Cruella as a total D+...if it really releases Memorial Day, well, it will probably continue the old "Memorial Day crash and burn" trend for big movies:)...Disney broke the trend with Aladdin, so now it's gonna restart it:)...

Report came out yesterday that trailer views for it in its first day were much higher than they were for similar titles like Aladdin and Maleficent 2 heh. In a normal world it would be tempting to warn everyone about underestimating the combined power of King Mickey and Queen Stone at their own peril.

Saw that - boredom is the answer:).  Heck, I watched it (thus, why I know it's adding to the trend:)...

Wait, is this really going to be released in 3 weeks? There's absolutely no promotion for the film.

It's happening

 

 

 

Back  in Jul and Aug when New York had fewer than 1000 cases a day, they refused to open NY cinema, now the situation is 10x worse than in July, somehow they allow this to happen.

I think filming officially began 2-3 months ago so it's certain to lose that date soon.

According to IMDb, it's in post-production since 12/28/20. A release in March is unlikely, but not impossible.
