    According to various sources, Warner Bro’s has delayed almost their whole schedule including major films like ‘Dune’, ‘The Batman’, ‘The Matrix 4’, and etc. What are your thoughts on the delays?

    The Batman is in serious trouble if it continues to get delayed as will be the case for No Time to Die outside the UK. The buzz will just end up being non existent.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    Exactly! Like 2022 feels so far from now. I don’t think they wrapped on filming yet, so that might be the reason for the almost 2 year delay.

    I’m really starting to think the large majority of theaters will not survive the pandemic, and going to the movies will become a niche pass time rather than a major part of our culture.

    I mean, even before COVID, we were already on our way to this point, but now it just seems inevitable.

    Warner Bros. Is going to be in serious trouble if they don’t put out anything within the next year that has buzz. Thats why they should put Wonder Woman 1984 and Judas and the Black Messiah on HBO Max. No one is going to movie theaters anyway.

    FYC Oscars: Licorice Pizza (Best Picture, Best Director, Original Screenplay), The Mitchells vs The Machines (Best Picture, Animated Feature, Original Screenplay), Wes Anderson (Best Director), Denzel Washington (The Tragedy of MacBeth), Andrew Garfield and Robin de Jesus (Tick, Tick...BOOM!), Jayne Houdyshell (The Humans), Stephen Karam (Adapted Screenplay), Attica and Summer of Soul (Best Documentary)

    I honestly think and heard they might plan on doing that. WW84 and Judas were the only films on their schedule that didn’t get pushed today. I mean I know Judas doesn’t have a release date yet, but if they planned on pushing it back to fall of 2021: they would’ve never released the trailer or poster in the first place and it would’ve been listed as one of the delays on their schedule today. So I’m hoping they just throw it in theaters or just let it go straight to Hbo max and give it the opportunity to contend this awards season.

    I’m taking Judas and the Black Messiah out of my predictions until I know what month they’re releasing it.

    It reminds me of when CD sales suffered because of digital downloading. And when digital downloading grew out of style in favor of streaming.

    The fall of theaters was inevitable. Technology has made it more convenient for us to experience cinematic endeavors in our own homes.

    But with COVID-19, the demise will likely happen sooner than later. The reality is unfortunate but that’s the world we are living in.

    I get the comparison but it only makes sense to a degree. Streaming an album gives you the exact same listening experience as putting on a cd, which is why compact discs are now a thing of the past. Streaming a movie on your tv – let alone your laptop or mobile phone – does not give you anything close to the same experience as watching it on the big screen does.

    That’s why cinemas have survived the rise of streaming technology better than many expected and predicted. And that’s why movie houses will bounce back when this damn pandemic has been dealt with, even though it might take a while. Much like live concerts or live theatre, people’s thirst for collectively shared big screen experiences is not going anywhere.

    I really hope this doesn’t happen but you’re right it looks inevitable unless someone somehow manages to swoop in and save them.

    This is one of the most depressing things I’ve ever heard.

    And I don’t believe in this analysis.
    Cinemas will rise again, once this pandemic will be dealt with, especially in the USA with an actual competent administration which doesn’t think that not wearing masks is synonymous with true masculinity.

    WB is delaying its big budget releases because it wasn’t impressed by Tenet’s performance. I don’t think they’ll consent to having their next film be the new guinea pig to test the state of the market, they’ll wait until another studio puts out a tentpole and then reevaluate their slate.

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned about technology, it’s that trying to resist the future and preserve the old way of life never works. It’s the same pit that lrint media and the newspaper industry fell into when the internet was invented, the same pit physical music fell into when digital music and streaming was invented, and now theaters are going to be the next casualty. Soon after this games will go digital only and Gamestop will go bankrupt. Digital is the future. There’s no resisting it.
