I dont see how that model would justify some of the budgets studios currently spend on such films. I would have to believe films budgets would shrink to a degree, depending on how much the overseas theatrical market can make

I guess it also depends on how much they pull from theater profits too. I'm curious how many subscribers they will add with this. You figure this will kinda lock people in for the year if they like movies enough. You'll be getting several huge releases a month to keep you wanting to stay subscribed. At $15 a month if they get 5-10 new million subscribers they are closing in on 1 to 2 billion...not enough I would think to cover all those. It is interesting to think how this will effect budgets in the future if this does become the norm.

I mean, how many of these were really gonna light the box office up under normal circumstances? Matrix, Conjuring, Suicide Squad, and maybe Space Jam? GvK and Dune were always borderline. Maybe throw Tom and Jerry in there. The rest of the slate had a decent chance of going to streaming anyway. (The Sopranos movie always seemed better suited for it.)

Wow WB...guess Nolan is the only director who had enough clout to let his movie not follow this model.

Yep. Saw a scooper on Twitter say that he'll probably leave WB because of this decision. We'll see how this affects everything. I bet Disney is next .

Hate to say it, but I hope WB go bust for doing this and another studio buy the DC / Kong licences.

As long as this means we'll continue to get releases in cinema. Then i think it's wonderful news. Not all of us can make it to the cinema, weather it's being housebound one way or another or simply cinemas have been price gouging for far too many years.

At least for us that have decent setups at home, we can experience the movie without horrendous prices, dirty cinemas, horrible annoying people, can pause for a toilet break etc.

This is not surprising news to say the least, but a big blow to all the theatre owners across the lands. It's a sad day for real movie lovers who enjoy an live audience reaction screening but to be Honest they are far a few between. The last one I was part of was a screening of Avengers: Endgame. I may not commit to an HBOMAX subscription in lieu of watching it at home, whereas Id rather support the physical media releases as they come.

And go where? He's not getting $200m to make *anything* from any studio right now if he insists on theatrical exhibition.

The pandemic ripped the bandaid off of the diminishing theatrical exhibition model. After it all shakes out the big tentpole films will still have the theatrical attendance of the enthusiasts, but more often than not it will need to be at a meal serving theater or an IMAX event screen. The age of the multiplex and cheap(er) theaters is over. It's event cinema only, whether that's the screen size, meal serving, or indie/foreign/repertoire darlings.

Same, I mentioned in another thread that there are some movies I will go see in theaters still.

Another opinion: This could also be as simple as AT&T spiting the box office just to gain more subscribers for the shareholders.

Okay? The pandemic isn't the reason you won't go if you haven't gone in nearly a decade. This news is great for you, since the theaters haven't seen a dime from you in 8 years.

I mean I’m shocked but at the same time I get it. For sure I’m seeing Conjuring, Godzilla vs Kong, In the Heights and Suicide Squad in theaters but the rest I can take or leave and I’m glad I’ll be able to watch at home (Tom and Jerry, Malignant, Dune, Matrix). I’ll still support theaters for the movies I want to see. As much as this sucks this is the new normal until we are on the other side of this. They can’t keep delaying movies.

as someone who hates the theatrical experience because of the crowds and inability of people to not treat the cinema like their personal living room for 2-3 hours, I welcome this kind of thing and had been hoping for something liek this to evolve for the past 10 years.

I've got a 106" screen and 4K projector at home. I'll accept the quality trade-off for no people around to enjoy these at home.

You are right. It's possible, but you can pretty much say the same about any company.
