Now that the submission deadline has passed, should we update the release schedule for Y9?


We actually extended the submission deadline to June 27th. @Alpha will probably update the submission thread’s schedule sometime soon.

Available Y9 Dates

 

With the June 27th deadline about four weeks away, I have decided to make a list of available dates on the schedule. Feel free to use this if you're struggling with when you should release a film. These dates aren't your only options, not by any means, but posting films here would round out the schedule and help the game move forward. Also, there can definitely be multiple films on a specific date, and the game could especially use multiple films on major dates such as Holidays. And just because a film is listed doesn't mean it'll be posted, since films get pushed into later game years all the time.

 

If you see a film of yours listed here and you know, "well that film's not happening this year," you can confirm that and I'll adjust this list. This is a living post that I plan to update as we get closer to the June 27th deadline.

Dates Without A Posted Film:

- January 17th (MLK weekend; The Formation is listed)

- February 7th

- March 7th (Untitled Fantasy Film is listed)

- March 14th (Starlight 2 is listed; the horror film listed was pushed to Y10)

- March 28th (Ninja Turtles is listed)

- April 11th (Wicker's End is listed)

- May 2nd (The Hunted is listed)

- May 16th (needs a film release other than my small documentary)

- May 30th

- June 6th (an animated film is planned for this date)

- June 27th (Scavenger Wars IV will be released here)

- Wed. July 2nd/Fri. July 4th (Independence Day Weekend; Heremias is listed)**

- July 18th (The Hard Way Forward is listed)

- August 15th (Beastars and Red Dead Redemption Vol. 1 are listed)

- August 22nd

September 5th

- October 24th (The Amityville Horror is listed)*

- November 7th

- Wed. November 26th (Thanksgiving weekend; an action blockbuster is planned)

- December 12th (Hilda and the Black Forest is listed)

 

* = a limited release is expanding wide on these dates, but they could still use a film

** = July 4th has a documentary releasing but could still use a narrative feature film or two

 

Dates That Could Use Another Film:

February 14th (Valentine's Day weekend; you would be counterprogramming against Whinge & Cringe)

April 18th (Easter weekend is an excellent time to release a film. The film posted so far is a family drama, The Boy Who Hated Books.)

December 25th (Millinium is listed; Christmas is a great place to release a film; you would be counterprogramming a film against Among Us)

 

Based on this chart, all that's needed to fill out the rest of the Y9 schedule is an amount that's between twenty and twenty-five films. This means the end's in sight! Feel free to post a film of yours anywhere you want, and remember to have fun. Yes, CAYOM is first and foremost a place to have fun and imagine cool feature films. Everybody wants to post the next big blockbuster or the critics darling that sweeps the Oscars, wins Best Picture, etc.; but you know what gives you no chance at a billion worldwide and no chance at Oscar nods? Not posting anything at all. So keep at it, don't give up, and let's make Y9 one for the history books!

I'm hoping to put my second Workshop movie for this year, Dinosaucers, sometime in August, around the same time the studio released Frankenstein Jr. last year. 


I suggest August 1st. Attack on Titan will get a hard R rating so they’ll coexist fine and you won’t be next to any other animated movies.

Temporary Updated Y9 Schedule

 

So this updated schedule is meant as a way to keep track of new posts on the submission thread for the time being; the schedule on the other thread may be updated in the future, but this schedule will tide over players eager for an updated top-down look at how the year's shaping up so far. This is a living post that I plan to update as more films get submitted in the lead-up to the June 27th deadline. Whenever films are posted in the submission thread, I'll add them here, and if you have any other requests about the schedule, you can tag me in this discussion thread and I'll make changes; my goal is to do either of those tasks within twenty-four hours of the film getting posted or the request being made. 😎

After some conversation, players have decided to extend the deadline to July 11th. This gives everyone a month from now to post films, granting a little bit more time to everyone. This will likely be the deadline’s final extension!

@SLAM! Some changes in the schedule: Whinge & Cringe is now scheduled for February 14th, the 4-day President's Day Weekend; while Death is Not My Friend now opens on February 28th.

 

Also, some corrections:

- Death is Not My Friend's theater count is 2589; your post doesn't link to the movie; and you have a typo on its budget (listed as $425m budget, rather than $25 million);

- The Boy Who Hated Books does not have a listed budget (it's $42 million);

- Warmth's theater count is 500 on its second expansion, and 2978 on its fifth and final one.
