I’m of the opinion that the studios have handled this terribly and if I was a theatre owner I would be talking to lawyers. I’m not saying they have a case, but they are victims of corporate negligence.

Poland just had its record daily cases. We've never had that many to begin with but just this number started talks of another lockdown. This will probably mean cinema closures again.

No more lockdowns, only measures and group gatherings cut. Same goes for fall/winter.
Unless you're fuckall USA before November and hopefully Biden, that's going to become a standard.

It's kind of a baffling decision on Disney's part, tbh. Don't forget Kaufman's I'm Thinking of Ending Things is out September 4th too.

It's a weird one because it's either you piss off the majors who'll throw an even bigger hissy fit than the Universal debacle if Disney attempts to day and date this, or you piss off the indies who (at least here in the UK) don't give two shits at this point about the theatrical exclusivity window and would be super happy to show it. (In fairness it's only the major majors - AMC-owned Odeon, Regal's parent company Cineworld and boutique branch Picturehouse, and Vue - are the ones holding onto the 16 week window).

But in any case the film simply had to come sooner rather than later because of all the spent marketing. Absolutely cackling at this launching same weekend as Tenet's US rollout though.

You guys, what even is this fucking year. The world has gone mad. I'm watching that Trump interview and then I'm watching that terrible explosion at the port and the cinema is dying. Is this it, our solid run on this Earth coming to an end?
