Tenet - Trailer and Discussion Thread (Opening 09/03/20)


Recommended Posts

Sure release it in July if health officials say we can start going outside again by then, but only if it's safe to do so. I love Nolan, but this seems so out of touch for him.

Obviously things can be done to make theatre-going a safer experience...but what I don't understand is the desire to release it this summer when it will surely lose a tonne of money if they do. I guess Nolan doesn't care as much as the studio about total profit (except insofar as it would affect them working with him in the future)

Wouldn’t be surprised if Nolan has an inflated ego and really thinks he will save movie theaters with this coming out in the summer.

I would've seen it in the movie theater but won't if it releases in July, simple.

I love Nolan, but I'm not seeing this in theater in July... I'll be waiting until it hits streaming.

Yep, I’m sure my friend will see it because he’s not taking covid seriously. I’ll be waiting for streaming and he’ll have nobody to talk to about it lol.

The way I see it if I decide that, there's thousands of others out there with the same flippant 'oh well' attitude towards it and he seems to underestimate that. Then again, whatever, I'm not that invested in it to begin with.

It'd be a shame, too, because he always makes good use of the IMAX cameras.

I usually want to go see his movies opening weekend (completely missed Interstellar in theatres unfortunately), but even if it's safer to go back outside in July, and we're back at work and whatnot, I might actually wait a few weeks so that the theatre is practically empty by the time I see it.

You probably won’t even have to wait, I’ve polled my Fox News loving Trump fans at our indoor and the majority are NOT down for going back to theaters any time soon.

Early word is starting to get out to some hospitals that the CDC and WHO are predicting a worldwide spike in C19 infections to happen this summer. Hopefully the risk of seeing a movie in theaters is worth it to some.

There’s probably a decent chunk of people that want everything opened back up but won’t go to all those places themselves. Especially risking it for a movie.

Meanwhile in Iran...

 

If these fucking movie companies were smart they'd setup makeshift  drive ins in empty lots 

 

Why in god's name would they do that? It's more profitable for the theaters to just release the movies straight to streaming... its PURE PROFIT at that point. The Troll movie is a text book example of this where Universal made more in three weeks of the film being on demand than the previous film made in FIVE MONTHS in theaters. I LOVE the theater going experience but it is STILL a luxury and not worth the risk to my own health, the health of others or the strain it could potentially put on our healthcare system especially when there are safer alternatives to consume the product. I Love Nolan as a filmmaker and I want to read his op-ed in the Washington Post, but I might just boycott this film out of principle... as much as I want to see it.

Because theaters had / have a hissy fit and won't show your movie in a theater.

I wasn't talking about the studios, so much as i was talking about the theater companies, Regal AMC etc. 

 

BUT what they could do for Movie theaters is off "Theater at home!" streaming at AMC's website and or the Regal Website. So people can still watch and support their local movie theater. And maintain a relationship with these companies. The problem is that Universal offered this but not to the theater companies and instead did so to the VOD rental companies. Vudu, Fandango, Apple, Amazon, Google. People are obviously willing to pay $20 for a rental why not split that money and give it to the theater chains and let the rental place VoD companies get it when they were normally scheduled to get it. I would've loved to have seen Black Widow. I love MCU movies but its not exactly "block buster experience" that must be seen in a massive auditorium with the unwashed masses. The movie studios are being nice and delaying the movies but fuck I'd rather see some movies this year than nothing at all. Venom and Morbius are movies id like to see this year and same goes for Wonder Woman.

I don't mind waiting... there's plenty of stuff to watch at this point. And I really don't want to lose the theater going experience... I LOVE going to the movies but I don't love it so much to risk my health I don't care WHAT'S playing. I honestly think the only thing keeping studios from abandoning theatrical distribution at this point is the international market. Didn't someone say that NY and LA make up a significant portion of the domestic box office? That's just two cities... if you factor in other major cities in the U.S. I truly wonder how much of middle and rural America is going to the movies. I think there IS an opportunity for drive in's to make a comeback but I don't think The studios would be too keen to invest in them at this point honestly. Not sure how much the theater chains would either :shrug:

More profitable for the studios but how would it be more profitable for theaters? They don't need the theaters to stream the movies.

That was a typo... I was talking about the studios. When he said "Movie companies" i assumed he was talking about the studios.

This didn’t happen. But Universal got the headline they wanted. Universal used two very different metrics, North American box office revenue for Trolls and global PVOD streaming revenue Trolls World Tour. Universal internally is projecting TWT to earn less money overall by skipping theatrical.

 

This info came from a source very high up in Universal on the theatrical distribution executive team that I personally know. It’s all posturing by Universal, and AMC/Regal. They’ll shrink the window further, but Uni knows they will make less money than going the traditional route. It mostly proves that there is some appetite for PVOD.
