I can imagine the pressure that WB and Nolan must handle, after all the "saving cinema" publicity and promises they made to the exhibitors community. They have a big decision to make.

So by that logic they should release it in 2022. Because this virus isn't going anywhere. The vaccine is our only hope and that might take 1-2 years at best. If an effective vaccine is even made. Like I said before, if you're waiting for things to be "normal" again, you will be waiting indefinitely. The truth is there is no way for things to be normal again. Society will have to adapt to living with this thing. That's why I feel postponing things won't solve anything. Theaters need to enforce distancing measures and precautions and open theaters with limited capacity. This will be the only option and studios will soon realize this.
You probably haven’t read any of my previous posts about this issue. I acknowledged that things won’t really go back to normal anytime soon and if July is too soon to open up then will four more weeks make a difference? Will movies slated for Fall/Winter get released with all this talk about a second wave? Even if the vaccine is ready, it’s not gonna be over overnight. It’ll take time to vaccinate most people and who knows, people might need to get vaccinated every year like the flu. The virus is not going anywhere.

I was optimistic about July because I was hoping that people around the world would follow orders and help with flattening the curve but the numbers don’t lie. I mean at the US and how things are handled there.

Health should come first, always. We can’t be reckless. But if things do open up, hopefully under the guidance of actual scientists and medical specialists, then I don’t see why movies should remain closed.

VOD is the safest option right now, but unfortunately theaters are too stubborn about the theatrical window. And obviously Nolan would never release TENET on VOD first.

At the end it’s not up to me nor up to any of us here to decide what happens. What we can do is decide whether we’ll be there if theaters open in July or August or not.

Good news is that universities HAVE to open by Fall 2020 (late August or late September at most). If they don't open by this time, the education of the next generation is screwed to the maximum.

There was actually hope during the past few days, with Newsom saying we may enter phase 3 within a month in CA, Disney announcing they're holding firm on Mulan, and Tenet marketing slowly beginning to pop up. But then today's LA announcement essentially washed all that down the drain. :facepalm:

Texas State University announced last week that they plan to reopen with face-to-face classes for the second summer session (beginning July 6th).

Exactly... for a moment I thought we are going to get the trailer very soon.

That's right. LA County will extend orders but you still other counties in California that have not been impacted as hard. San Francisco, San Diego, Orange County should have plenty of screens available.

Apparently, the stay at home extension in LA wasn't properly reported and isn't actually what is going to happen? Wait and see. By the way, Oxford MIGHT have a vaccine ready by September and a few hundred million doses by the end of the year. The US is also working on one (just started trials) that could be ready by the end of the year if all goes well and there are tons of others out there.

So maybe we'll get lucky, we'll see.
