"Wonder Woman 1984" Will be Released to HBO Max on the Same Day As Its (Obligatory) Release to Theaters;
Move May Mark The End of Movie Theaters

It'll be released on Christmas, if you care.

This is big.

They're not going to make money on this releasing it "free" (well, free on a paid premium service) like this. They're not even going to get a bunch of new subscribers -- because a lot of them will just sign up for the free try-out period, and then quit.

This is a give-up. This is throwing in the towel on a $200 million movie.

This is admitting that theatrical exhibition is dead and it's not coming back to life.

I don't know if we'll ever see any real blockbusters ever again -- I don't think you can make enough money on these things renting them online for $20. Plus, the minute you rent them online, they're not easily piratable.

This might be big. This might be a major media domino tumbling over.

How great will it be if it turns out it was the Democrat Party's Pandemic Fascism that winds up destroying the media?

It's important to look at the results of Disney's release of Mulan.

They made a lot of money. Money they didn't need to share with theaters.

There's a lot of internal pressure to release more like that.

Other studios are taking note. This is probably a direct reaction to Disney's numbers on Mulan.

27 If the only media game in town belongs to Hollywood- and you can bet a Biden Administration would want that- the quality will go down even as prices go up. Which will still be profitable if you have a green light to cripple competition.

56 I may see it if the gf and her kids want to but I am not real keen on another superhero movie. The MCU movies kinda caused superhero burnout for me. I mean, yeah it was cool seeing superheroes I read about as a kid come to the big screen in a major set of movies but after a while I was just tired of them. End Game was great as a "that's it, we're done with this". It tied up things and finished the story arc.


Also, for me at least, I don't really care or want to support actors who rage about me and my horde being awful, racist, xenophobe, homophobe, terrible no good people who ought to be killed. Who wants to support actors who feel that way? Not me. I am pretty selective on what I watch now. Hollyweird and its ilk can die in a fire. I won't miss it or mind. Honest.

That's what happened with Mulan.

Disney made about $260 million in the first week that they didn't haven't to split with theaters. If they had made that in the theaters, Disney would have only taken about $160 million of that. Released on Disney+ with the added $30 for access, they pocketed every penny for themselves.

The problem, in my mind, is that this cheapens these event movies and ends up making them feel like little other than another streaming release, of which there are dozens a week that no on ever notices.

I don't think it's a great long term strategy.

+++++++++++++
Yes, but there is another factor as well. This may be Hollywood acknowledging that it has to throw in the towel on $200 million *movies.*

If theaters are dead (and that remains to be seen, but I suspect it might be the case) and movie releases move to pay-per-view or premium streaming, then this is going to be a secular revenue dislocation the likes of which Hollywood has *never* seen. If this happens, it may mark the end of the mega-budget movie *period.*

That might end up being a good thing - more movies that are cheaper and with much cheaper stars. I don't know. But if theaters are actually dead, then I would bet that the mega-budget tentpole is dead, too.

$35 million is great for a streaming, but terrible overall, especially given how badly the movie was panned. I don't think it even made its money back. Disney probably realizes that the era of blockbusters is over, and SJW tripe with shitty production value can be had far more cheaply in many other locations.

The company is almost certainly going to be in for major restructuring. Especially when Trump wins and simply has Disney and all its IP seized...

But I've rented a few movies for $20 in the past 8 months. I don't know what the calculus is of money lost from teeangers going to movies vs money gained from people like me. But it may wash out.

Theaters themselves will be DOA. But Hollywood? They'll figure a way to make money from making movies.

Posted by: Asshoes at November 19, 2020 01:14 PM (22mNy)

93 I don't know if we'll ever see any real blockbusters ever again -- I don't think you can make enough money on these things renting them online for $20.


I'm not paying $20. I'll wait until they drop it to $4 or free.

I DON'T have to see any new movie that bad.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison, going back...to the Future! at November 19, 2020 01:07 PM (NWM+b)

$35 million is great for a streaming, but terrible overall, especially given how badly the movie was panned. I don't think it even made its money back. Disney probably realizes that the era of blockbusters is over, and SJW tripe with shitty production value can be had far more cheaply in many other locations.

The company is almost certainly going to be in for major restructuring. Especially when Trump wins and simply has Disney and all its IP seized...

Posted by: Mr. Peebles at November 19, 2020 01:14 PM (oVJmc)
++++++++++++
It could go wither way.

The case for "less," if that happens: One of the reasons for the China-friendly messaging and - even worse, in my opinion - the dumbed-down simple dialogue* is needing the movie to play in China.

The case for "more:" If domestic - or Western more generally - theaters die but Oriental - and specifically Chinese - theaters do not, then blockbusters will pivot *more* to satisfying the Chinese audience, with PPV or premium streaming revenues being a fairly modest revenue item for the overall production.

(* Even if the message and story aren't adjusted for China, the dialogue needs to be simplified because most Chinese viewers are not strong English speakers, which means they project subtitles along with the film. The movies need to be easy to translate to do this effectively without losing meaning, and that leads to simplified dialogue.)

It's important to look at the results of Disney's release of Mulan.

They made a lot of money. Money they didn't need to share with theaters.

There's a lot of internal pressure to release more like that.

Other studios are taking note. This is probably a direct reaction to Disney's numbers on Mulan.

But to get Mulan you had to have Disney+ and pay $30. WW '84 is straight up on HBO Max, so the income from this will be much harder to track unless they see a ton of sign ups that stick around.

178 158 The case for "less," if that happens: One of the reasons for the China-friendly messaging and - even worse, in my opinion - the dumbed-down simple dialogue* is needing the movie to play in China.

The case for "more:" If domestic - or Western more generally - theaters die but Oriental - and specifically Chinese - theaters do not, then blockbusters will pivot *more* to satisfying the Chinese audience, with PPV or premium streaming revenues being a fairly modest revenue item for the overall production.

(* Even if the message and story aren't adjusted for China, the dialogue needs to be simplified because most Chinese viewers are not strong English speakers, which means they project subtitles along with the film. The movies need to be easy to translate to do this effectively without losing meaning, and that leads to simplified dialogue.)
Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at November 19, 2020 01:20 PM (hYcqw)

=========

The funny irony is that the Chinese audiences generally don't like American films all that much. Mulan bombed in China.

China has a full fledged movie industry that makes movies in Mandarin by Chinese people for Chinese people. It's not a weird cultural hodgepodge between American and Chinese interests.

China really isn't that into Hollywood anymore.

HBO has said that signups are around what they wanted, but a new release without extra pay could be the kind of ploy they want to use to juice new signups.

I'm not sure where you're getting the $260 million number from, but Disney hasn't been treating Mulan like the golden goose. I suspect they'll hype the remaining Disney products to extract maximum short term value, just like they did with Mulan, but the ROI is going to be way smaller than they anticipated. Developing blockbusters is probably going to fall away from Disney's long term strategy.

Also, how the hell are American audiences this desperate to fork over money for a crappy remake of Mulan, when it bombed so badly in China?

And virtually nobody actually *uses* ranked-choice voting (because it is a terrible idea and hasn't passed in most places that have tried to implement it).

So if the RCV features are there outside of RCV jurisdictions, then why are they there? If they are there because of software versioning (possible), why are those RCV features accessible or active outside of RCV jurisdictions? Moreover, why can they even *be* activated outside of those jurisdictions, say with a hardware key or vendor-cooperative enablement mechanisms that are coordinated with the jurisdiction executives?

One answer: they're lazy and it's way easier to just push the feature everywhere.
Another answer: corruption.

260 "Since production is much easier now with 4K cameras on your phone lots of people are making movies."

Yes, there will always be movies, and plenty of good ones are made on small budgets, and all over the world.

The theater offered you your choice of maybe eight movies, on their schedule, at their high prices, with their restrictions on your behavior, without the ability to pause the film to take a leak, etc, etc.

In home you can choose from a catalog of, what, maybe a million movies. On your schedule, for less than what a theater costs, eating and drinking whatever you want, no obnoxious seatmates, setting the volume at your comfort level, pausable if needed, subtitling options (for hard-of-hearing folks like me, and foreign-film fans like me.)

This, as much as the pandemic, is what depresses theater attendance.

I wrote about this when Martin Scorsese said that Marvel movies weren't real cinema.

I looked at the top ten releases from a year in the 70s and compared them to a couple of years ago.

The 70s year represented 10 different studios and not a single sequel. A couple of years ago represented 4 studios (Disney had 5 of the top 10) and almost all were sequels.

People used to go to the theaters for more than spectacle, but then the studios decided to just chase the spectacle money. Scorsese wanted the system that was happy to take the money he made from Wolf of Wall Street to treat Silence with some kind of respect.

286 242 AMC Theaters was doing a special around here that they advertised, "Rent out the entire theater for $99 a night".

The theater pub my brother worked at did that as a dodge around being shut down. You can rent the theater to do what you want! And if you bring a DVD we'll show it for you on our big screen! And if you want food, well we can cook some for you too.

But they weren't making enough money to pay rent and workers. So they shut down.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at November 19, 2020 01:26 PM (KZzsI)

I've seen some of that too, and yeah, that's a theater owners desperation move. There's no way $99 a night covers fixed costs for any modern theater. I'm sure they were hoping to make it up on food sales, but with a small party of people, even that won't be enough.

$35 million is great for a streaming, but terrible overall, especially given how badly the movie was panned. I don't think it even made its money back. Disney probably realizes that the era of blockbusters is over, and SJW tripe with shitty production value can be had far more cheaply in many other locations.

The company is almost certainly going to be in for major restructuring. Especially when Trump wins and simply has Disney and all its IP seized...
Posted by: trev006 at November 19, 2020 01:14 PM (D0TJa)

They probably made their money back, but you don't invest $200 million in a film to "probably make your money back."

So studios may become gun shy on what they think return on investment maybe.

Add in is this a sign of a successful future, or something that worked because unique and the next film may not pull it off.

If Disney was certain this would work, Soul wouldn't be on regular Disney+ on Christmas Day and Black Widow would have it's digital release date announced.

333 The thing about the first Wonder Woman's ending? I felt like I saw it before in Captain America's first movie. It was pretty much the same ending to me.

Objectively, Wonder Woman isn't a great movie. It drags in some places and the ending is terrible. But Gal Gadot is so charming and gorgeous and the movie is so fun and clearly loves the genre (as opposed to most of the Marvel films) that its still entertaining.

Remember, too, that comparisons were bound to happen. There were to lady superhero movies at that time:
- Wonder Woman, which was by all accounts a decent movie.
- Captain Marvel, which by all accounts was a pretty lousy movie with lots of preliminary hate-sowing.

I suspect a lot of the "Wonder Woman was absolutely amazing and spectacular" stuff comes from the fact that in comparison to its nearest competitor, it was.

351 They probably made their money back, but you don't invest $200 million in a film to "probably make your money back."

Exactly. They made money but not enough to justify that cost and the time spent. Hollywood doesn't consider a few hundred million profit a success, especially not after pulling in more than a FREAKING BILLION on previous attempts.

3- When Niles is waiting for a date, notices a loose thread on his pants which ends up with him burning down the couch (all without any dialogue)

361 As the day's events unfold, I'm beginning to wonder.

Early this morning, in that stage where you're not awake and not quite still asleep either, I was grumbling at God (not sure the Doxology combined with grousing about politics counts as prayer). At that point, I remembered something I hadn't thought about for maybe a decade.

When we lived in Delaware, I had about a 2000-gallon pond that got severely neglected while I went through cancer diagnosis and treatment. When I was able to start caring for the pond again, it was so overgrown Mr. Empire and I had to haul the vegetation out with the station wagon (which fortunately had a towing package).

As I woke up more, I got to wondering: allegory for draining the swamp? Let it get so bad the only possibility is to haul the whole mess out and start over?

I don't know, but I chose to see it as God letting me know He's bringing a cleansing through President Trump and his followers.

(Not a prophet or anything ... just my thoughts on a connection which may mean nothing, but comforts me.)

I've said before, the last time I remember walking into a theater for a first run movie was not this century. The last "blockbuster" I saw was when the ex worked for WB, and we got seats for the premier of Batman & Robin.

I remember we were really excited because we'd seen the greenhouse set at the WB studios, the excitement was palpable. The wait finally over, and we were at a WB premier! Woohoo!

I think there was one guy clapping at the end, it was like The Producers. The crowd walking out was shellshocked. I got in trouble when I kept laughing (I smoked too much back then anyway).

I've tried to watch some of the Marvel things when they're free on TV, I think I've slogged through a few in their entirety, but can't remember a thing about them.

I'm fine if we don't have the classic summer blockbusters. It's possible that hollyweird will take a long, hard look at where they've gone in the past 25 years, but I really doubt it.

411 359 It was a totally hysterical episode (like most Fraziers were)
===========
My 3 favorites Frasier moments:

1 - The maid translating from German that the trainer spoke to Spanish so Frasier can then translate to English to Niles

2- The Thanksgiving episode where Niles is cooking dinner and silently Frasier and Lillith steal the turkey while John Mahoney frantically runs to the freeze for ice (with was a running joke of him injuring Frederick)

3- When Niles is waiting for a date, notices a loose thread on his pants which ends up with him burning down the couch (all without any dialogue)
Posted by: astronaut achmed at November 19, 2020 01:35 PM (E1b7r)

So many episodes to choose from!

I think one of the best is when Daphne's old boyfriend shows up and she pretends she's married to Niles.

Another one is when Bebe has to quit smoking to marry that really rich guy who bought Frazier's radio station. Whoever wrote that one smoked or had smoked in the past and quit. It was spot on.

I laughed so hard at both. Great writing and acting.

417 313 the cost of making movies can come down if they stop spending half the budget on marketing

You don't grasp that indirectly the studios own the marketing companies, so it's just a cash shuffle to keep from paying gross points on profits or taxes to the IRS.

ANY time costs seem insanely out of whack to services rendered, it's a tax dodge. Indirectly, eliminating most taxes would clear up most reasons for financial fraud.

At my first college, we had a big student body and WB sometimes pre-screened movies there to get audience reaction. I went to several crappy movies because they were free and I was broke. The most memorable was the remake of "Alfie," which was just disastrously bad. At the end of the movie, there's this long take of Alfie talking about how he's changed and evolved, with the camera slowly pushing in over a period of like four minutes.

Several of the women in the theater were tearing up, but I couldn't help it. I just started laughing out loud. I couldn't stop. Then, hopefully to the horror of the WB focus group people, that laughter started spreading through the theater...

I appreciate that the writers actually went to Adam and said "we don't know how conservatives actually are, so give us tips on your character".

One of my faves was when he had to sing Bells and Buttons and Bows for some charity, and Frazier said he knew it so well he didn't need to practice, even though Niles warned him. Of course he got up on stage and forgot all of it, and had to mumble through the song. For anyone who's ever been on a stage in any capacity, that is a performer's worst nightmare, literally - this is a Bad, Bad, Dream come true.

Remember though, their "overturn" hysteria will mostly fall on deaf ears. Why do I believe that? Well, because I believe this election was an absolute blowout with Trump beating Biden, and with Trump getting an unprecedented number of minorities and D voter crossovers. None of us, or them, are blind. If 2/3rds of the country voted for Braindead Joe, then there would certainly be reason to worry about the agitation they'd try to conjure up by claiming he's stealing or overturning THE PEOPLE!!eleventy.

In actuality, however, Trump has the voters (in numbers) on his side. So their screeching will fall flat.

Honestly, they would only have to kill Tony because his nephew was incompetent and his son was a loser, and his daughter a useless whore. And typically the mob tries not to kill family members. But I'm guessing they were going to clean house. The whole bunch of them all at once.

489 464 The DOJ announced last year that the Paramount Decrees, that forbade studios from owning theaters, were possibly going to be repealed completely.

I understood that had happened, that theaters can be owned by studios. Why that was ever a law to begin with I do not comprehend anyway.

But whether studios will think its worthwhile or not is another question. That might fit into my "special theatrical release" theory, though. If MGM owns a theater in town they can run old MGM content and a few low-key films and then do a couple of big blockbusters a year.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at November 19, 2020 01:43 PM (KZzsI)

=========

It was originally around the practice of block booking. The studio owned theaters used their monopoly power to pressure the smaller theaters into doing what they wanted, dictating terms of distribution to an absurd degree.

I think it was a good decision that should have been expanded not repealed. Studios owning their own streaming services is a recipe for the same sort of thing happening again.

Reduce that Chi-Nah number by about 40 percent. Because by all accounts that's the number of PLA troops that are detailed to domestic security rather than national defense.

Their military is in many ways a paper tiger. Shitty knock off weapons, and shitty quality control.

The scary thing about Chi-Nah is their fascist ideology, expansionist intentions and a willingness to spend shitloads of money to undermine their enemies before firing a shot. Those things are infinitely more dangerous than their actual military.

One of the benefits of this election, even though it probably won't make any difference in keeping Trump in office, will be exposing a lot of the corruption in Gope.

We've spent much of the past four years arguing with each other about who the good guys are and who the bad guys are.

2) Zack Snyder's original screen play had to be paired down as it weighed in slightly longer then the calendar year the move was based on, "Can people really understand the travails of a woman that can turn into a Cheetah if they didn't fail fourth grade math with her?"

3) Kristen Wiig only took the role so she could make out with Gal Gadot. "I hear this kissing girls thing is what the audience wants, right?"

4) Gal Gadot secretly hired a stunt kisser for the movie, she was quoted as saying "AS IF"

The Troubles was kinda mentioned. No mention of Reagan at all, I thought the No Nukes would have been mentioned. Worst of all no mention of the Visit with John Paul II which was soo historic

631 yeah, I think someone on this site mentioned that the largest army in the world is China, with about 3 million soldiers.

US issues 30 million hunting licenses a year.

You can see why Obama was focused like a laser beam on taking guns away, with hindsight.

Every thread eventually turns into a gun thread. It's one of the things I love about AoSHq.Apparently Weasel-like threads replicate faster than covid.
I'd like to add a few observations-

A lot of gun owners don't even hunt. They be city boys.
The military has about 4.5 million firearms. Add another million for all police forces from Barney Fife all the way up to urban SWAT teams.
Now array that against 400 million firearms in the hands of pissed off private citizens. https://tinyurl.com/y8rgcjxy
If successful with the election shit they just pulled, I hope everyone appreciates the urgency they will come after guns with to avoid having 4 million rifles stuck up their asses.

But if Widow is on Disney+ and so are all those Marvel shows how does Disney get Marvel film fans back into theaters again?

That's how Google used to work, its why it became the search engine so ubiquitous people use "google" to mean search. Well, some people. It was that good, it got what you wanted, the first time, with 10 other examples you didn't realize but found useful.

Yeah, I think that's the balance that Disney management is struggling with right now.

If they release everything on Disney+, then it can all run together. They had very clear designs on separate releases for films and television with Black Widow going to theaters and their handful of TV shows like Loki going to Disney+.

Investors want money now, but management is probably worried about long term effects on their brand management.

677 This isn't throwing in the towel on theatres as much as simple survival. Massive loans are taken out to make this shit. If they're simply carrying the finished product as inventory for the foreseeable future, all the while paying interest on that money then they have little to no hope of turning a profit in the long run. Even with Hollywood accounting.

Recover what value you can, cut your loses and wait for a return to normal when you can continue to preach to the rubes and have them pay you for the privilege.

Disney+ had about 60MM subscribers before the Verizon deal, which bumped the number up to around 74MM, at least according to my exhaustively comprehensive 30 second web search.

If we take out the extra 14MM from the Verizon deal and do some Moron Math, it comes to around $5B per year.

I can buy she'd beat the crap out of ordinary guys and fat mobsters, but yeah anythign beyond that she needs help.

Which is why in the comics she's not quite human: there's one that shows her as a little girl in... WW2. And this isn't comic book timeline, she was talking to Captain America from the time period (and Logan--Wolverine--incidentally). She also has her stingers, blasters on her wrists which got virtually no play at all in the movies and are pretty critical to her character (and a swingline, to get around with).

She's been there about 5 months. She was fired from Fox because they claim she 'came to work visibly sick in March.' She was sent home, went to the doc, had TWO negative covid tests but wasn't good enough. They let her go.

Governor is the executive branch head, and the State's secretary of state is part of the executive branch, so I assume the power is there to at least stall things.

Its not clear exactly how much else that affects him, but that's a key part of his character. He's not just some dude with a bow.

But yeah, guys like him and Widow do not belong in groups like the Avengers. I like Hawkeye but he's not in the weight class of the rest of the team, and its painfully obvious. At least Batman has his intellect and gadgets to help him out, he is the world's greatest detective.

Not sure where people get their information.

Not his girlfriend, she's an actress. Has been in stuff in Russia, and Borat hired her to play his supposed underaged daughter, posing as a reporter for a "conservative" news organization.

So... in case it needs to be said, Rudy never tried to seduce the woman, he went into a bedroom with her to "have a drink," which is probably what I would have done too, if she'd asked me to.

He never took off his pants, and wasn't even close to taking off his pants. What he was doing (upon her suggestion) was trying to remove his microphone, which goes in through the shirt for these types of interviews.

Rudy was on the bed laying back, as he was trying to remove the microphone, and that's when Cohen burst into the room saying "she's too old for you, she's 15!" Or whatever.

At which point Rudy got up, left the room, and IMMEDIATELY called the police.

End of story. Anything anyone else claims about the incident is bullshit.

Oh, yes, I recognize him as well. I remember when Greg Kelly was on FOX on the weekend show too.

By the way, it seems that Mark Halperin is working his way back into polite society via Newsmax. This is the second time I've seen him.

After Trump filed for the recount, their elections commission met to discuss process. And the republican reps are pretty based - made me think that they might be able to get an honest count.

Dershowitz (on Newsmax now) always frustrates me. He can be an annoying lefty but he truly believes in the Constitution and the rights enumerated therein. He's old-school liberal. The modern left must horrify him.

They don't horrify him enough to not get his vote.

768 The current Hollywood model -- ludicrously over-expensive movies whose real purpose is to funnel millions of dollars to various favored people and corporations, budgets endlessly spiraling upward every year, with the whole creaky edifice dependent on enough "blockbusters" to keep things marginally profitable overall -- was extremely fragile even before the WuFlu ripped the legs out from under it. People were speculating that the whole thing was only a couple of big failures away from collapse.
Well...
BTW this does make me wonder about the financial fate of some of the other insanely-expensive Hollywood megaprojects out there, like Villeneuve's Dune and Cameron's FOUR sequels to Avatar.

772 I think that in many big releases, the plan is to go to the foreign market (read: China) so they don't want the dialog to matter much anyway.

778 In a very selfish way, good. A) Because I generally hate "blockbuster" films and how we now have 20 of them scheduled a year. B) As someone trying to get lower budget scripts made you're now competing for fewer and fewer openings. A studio will make 5 $250 million films a year, 2-3 $80 million and 1 "art house" for Oscars bait. If you have a good $4-5 million dollar (or less) you need to find the ever rarer boutique production companies, who also now just want to make things that are in the $100 million range.

It'll be good for the industry, and the viewing public, to have a reset back to well made movies based on story and acting, instead of having some of the worst actors read pages from a comic book.

779 The important part of the phrase "circumstantial evidence" is the word "evidence". The word "circumstantial" is a modifier which tells you what kind of evidence it is. Most murders can only be tried on circumstantial evidence, the eyewitness is no longer alive. All forensic evidence is circumstantial, the forensic evidence was caused certain by circumstances of the crime. For example gun shot residue only exists in the circumstance that the victim was shot by a near by gun.
Here is very powerful, statistical, circumstantial evidence that votes were changed by the counting machines: https://tinyurl.com/y3pf45zz

The snack bar is a major profit center for the theaters. They have to share the ticket price with the distributor, but the snack bar is all theirs.

783 The first time I watched a big superhero movie I was embarrassed, the guys in masks look so stupid, I haven't seen them all but I've seen some, Wonder Woman was good, I saw a Justice League with a free ticket in a theatre so I understand people don't like that one but in the theatre it was very entertaining, I haven't seen any for a few years, but Even I know, from a clip in one of the movies I remember, that, early in her career, Black Widow is heavily synthetically enhanced to be extra strong and very indestructible by some major steam punk Russian high tech.

784 Don't care. Didn't like the first Wonder Woman, why would I want to watch the sequel?

Will be interesting to see how Hollywood fares at the end of all this. It's all trash and movie theatres are overrated. Not to say I haven't enjoyed some movies at the theatre, but mostly it's the audiences that ruin the experience.

786 "Going out to the movies" is actually something I've really missed these last 8 months. Not so much the movies themselves, but the experience of going out, treating myself to a popcorn, and just chilling out with a big screen and kicking speakers for a while.

I can replicate SOME of that at home, but it's a pale imitation at best. So yeah, I can get the same CONTENT but not the same EXPERIENCE.

Of course, I'm in the People's Republic of Maryland and in Montgomery County at that, so no theaters are open. I'd have go over over to Virginia to see anything, and theoretically I'm not supposed to cross state lines except for work within the DC metro area or a medical appointment.

"Land of the free" my ass.

787 The film stunk up the place in test screenings and lots of money was spent on reshoots. It's a bomb and no matter where it was released it was going to lose money.

Posted by: Holly at November 19, 2020 07:29 PM (BeME3)

788 The end of movie theaters will lead to the end of Hollywood. There won't be the money to make $500 million blockbusters and pay actors $30 million a movie. Large studios won't survive. The production of films will be less expensive and less centralized. I suppose some remnant of the industry will survive in Los Angeles, the only reason being having most of your actors in one area.

789 An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto
a co-worker who was doing a little research on this.
And he actually ordered me dinner because I found it
for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!!
But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this subject here on your website.
