The next two tweets in the thread are very interesting as well, one thing Netflix has over most of the studios (expect probably Disney) is a strong sense of customer preferences that let them supersize their hits, a recent example is Cobra Kai were they could target people that watched a lot of 80s and 90s films and people in teen dramas and then the word of mouth spread from there. 

 

Funny thing is that Cobra Kai isn't even a Netflix production. It was produced by Youtube Red (now known as Youtube Premium).

So sad, Batman was never begun.......

 

Also, I heard some said Tenet is the best since Prestige, it make sense for them to rank side by side,

Made by Sony and licensed to YouTube but yeah, Netflix has done that with a few different shows now Lucifer is another example.

Netflix has yet to make an action blockbuster feel like it's on par with a Nolan/bond/mission impossible/Mad Max film or even an MCU/DC cbm 

 

so i dont think they are really a threat for the studios with that demographic. Netflix's strongest point (in the film division) is their mid to low budget films and their acquisitions of obscure foreign films and w/e they can get their hands on from festivals

Disappointing numbers but honestly, I think I'm done with this film's boxoffice. It's not like Nolan will never able to make another film again because of this flop. If anything, it'll likely prompt Nolan to make something different than his usual films next time. 

 

At this point, I just want to watch this movie.

They're gonna start looking into that area with The Gray Man directed by the Russo Brothers

The real question is, would have Tenet flopped had there been no pandemic?

Based on how well  it's holding in europe and how big presales where in Korea .

It's major competition was morbius and ghostbusters which ain't big competition.

Minions wouldn't have effect on it due to them being of different demographics.

And basically  free august.

 

650-700m+  which would be fine .

America did this all wrong. The biggest chain here opened on the first weekend of July. It was a full month of horrendous disasters to build trust and WOM that cinemas are safe. The first movie with a marketing campaign opened on August 6, and did respectably. Mid August a big nationwide campaign started which announced theaters were opened. That combined with the Tenet and After campaigns starting at the same time was the perfect storm for things to go well. 

 

Meanwhile in America the plan was to speedrun throught all of that and just release a big budget blockbuster 2 weeks after the reopening, which wasn't even a full reopening of all theaters in all of the country. Most people are probably not even aware theaters are opened and no trust or WOM was built/spread about theaters being safe. It was the perfect storm... just in the opposite direction of what happened in Europe.

If Dunkirk opened to 50m I think we can assume a Nolan action film opening in the middle of summer would have cleared that quite easily. How its legs would have fared is another matter.

preasle in korea wasn't big. and it's performance in EU is also highly driven by being only 1 summer blockbuster hollywood movie with no competition and being face of theater.

Presales in SK weren't big because of the outbreak.

On the other hand...studios have all the data and yet they still want to shorten the window...from the numbers they have it certainly could make sense. We simply don’t know. 

Studios are own by media corporation that do not necessarily do what is best for the movie they release in mind (but the cable brand and now SVOD brand numbers) nor for the next 50 year's in mind, the first movie that would shortcut the window by surprise would have a big advantage of doing so, that does not mean that if every movie do it all the time that it would be on the long term a good thing.

 

For example:

https://etcanada.com/news/656219/the-king-of-staten-island-will-premiere-exclusively-on-demand-no-drive-in-theatres/

 

This is maybe the best for Universal VOD deals but not necessarily for the movie itself.
