Dune skews heavily male, WW a very wide audience. I don't see a problem with them opening close together. Bummer I have to wait longer for WW, but should be a great Christmas box office.

Rumors say Black Widow and Soul will be delayed this week, and neither will go direct to Disney+.

That's expected. Releasing Mulan on D+ didn't do them any favors.

How will theaters stay open if everything is pulled? If a movie is anticipated people will come. No one cares about Tenet anyway pandemic or no pandemic.

To change things up a bit: The Croods: A New Age has actually moved up a month to Nov. 25th, 2020 from Dec. 23rd, 2020. Strange that no trailer has been released yet though to my knowledge, just see a lot of fanmade material.

I'm guessing Universal has inside info related to the unconfirmed reports about Soul being moved to 2021/possibly premiering on Disney+ instead?

Universal will probably give it a run on Thanksgiving and then have it out on demand before Christmas.

Yeah I think Universal had success with Trolls so it makes sense for them to experiment with this property. On a regular schedule it might not have made much anyways.

Welp. We got our answer about Mulan's performance lol

Black Widow moves to May 7 2021, Soul stays theatrical.

Most likely Soul will go to VOD quickly but they think having the theatrical option first will be beneficial.

Death on the Nile moves to December... meaning no major release until November. Wonder if theaters will have to close for October.

Soul and Croods 2 opening five days apart now. Obviously this would be an issue in regular years, but perhaps they'll be fine "competing" given the lack of options.

That is assuming audiences in America are even ready to go back to the movies. I think many Americans are exhausted, stressed, and whatever other negative adjective describing a lot of people right now. I also question if audiences, families in particular, are willing to spend their money on a movie versus holiday shopping given the financial hardships many are having right now as well.

I think if there’s a movie people wanna see in theaters, they’ll go see it. I don’t know how it is in other parts of the country, but very few people are worried about the virus in Chester County, PA. I know far more parents desperate for excuses to take their kids out than parents who are happy keeping them home to protect them from the virus.

I think Tenet is not doing to well because of NY/LA still being closed and because it didn’t look super appealing.

I still don't think Mulan's VOD numbers has triggered this release changes. I think it's the China results that Disney is going to give itself sometime for the controversy to die down. Plus at the end of the day if Mulan made $500m that's not enough for a $200m+ budgeted movie with heavy marketing push behind it.

Local theaters are going down to only having one showing per screen next week. Mostly old movies too. Madagascar had as much appeal as anything else I guess.

This is a chicken and egg problem. The theaters are not fully functional because there are no new releases and studios are not releasing new movies because theaters are not fully functional. The studios will eventually have to do with less money for a few months to reap future benefits because clearly VOD is not getting them big money.
