There is some spike in cases and cluster infection in Seoul area.....Please don't at this very moment.

Isn't the compliance rate to social distancing measures quite high in SK though? I have a feeling that it probably hasn't spread much outside of the church members, who seem to be some of the few people not complying. But good thing Seoul imposed more restrictions before it gets worse.

So is South Korea a dead market for Tenet now? Just noticed that its presales decreased from over 50k to 43k.

 

Edit: And seems like it's still decreasing. I have a hard time seeing this release next week now.

And it’s down to 40k.  This market was gonna be huge for Tenet. Hope they delay to a better time so it can earn closer to its true potential, rather than releasing it now and have it flop when people are afraid of the recent surge  of the pandemic

Ok, it seems like the decrease in ticket sales isn't because audiences are cancelling them but because cinemas are cancelling them so that they can rearrange seating with more social distancing measures. I heard cinemas that cancelled tickets for this weekend's preview screening and restarted booking are still selling out. Maybe @imbrugliacould corroborate what I just said but it might not be all doom and gloom.

Jumped by around 10k in the past hour. Still has a lot of ground to cover to make up for what happened yesterday. Hopefully WoM from previews give it a boost.
