    You’re probably a bit like me… a feeling of frustration at not seeing all this films tempered by the knowledge that, really, it’s all for the best.

    I’m a bit gutted by the reminders I keep getting that I have/had tickets for No Time To Die for the 10:00 a.m. showing tomorrow! I’ve been buying films on Apple TV like they’re going out of style! Mind you… I’m still in pocket through not spending >£200 in Starbucks!

    Ah well… keep safe.

  2. I have heard that Wonder Woman 84 will be out the week before Dune. And I’ve heard Dune will be out around 18/12/20.
    Not official but just what I heard on the radio.

  3. That’s the current release information for Dune and WW1984. However, Tenet didn’t perform nearly as well as was hoped, so everything may get put off until… Untill… Who knows.

  4. You’re probably right, Dan. I think that we’re looking at very few big releases until 2022/23 but the studios are too afraid to bite the bullet and say that they won’t be releasing anything anytime soon.

    I went to see Tenet (twice, actually) but there were a lot of empty seats over and above the social distancing requirements. If Eon turns around and says Bond 25 will not open until summer 2022 then cinemas will fall like dominos.

    Better to keep sliding back a few months at a time and allow other films to get a showing which, usually, wouldn’t have found a screen; thankfully that’s how I got to see The Eight Hundred.

  5. There seems to be paradox developing in the entertainment world…

    Filming has re-started on a lot of projects despite the fact that there is a backlog of finished films that are, figuratively, just sitting on shelves.

    I know the studios are holding back until the cinemas can be filled and they make all those ticket sales but what happens when it is, finally, all over?

    Let’s say that mid to late 2021 a vaccine is developed, produced, distributed, and administered; COVID-19 has gone the way of smallpox and polio.

    Shortly afterwards all the cinemas reopen fully and want to lure the punters back in with some of those long awaited blockbusters. So the floodgates are opened… Bond 25, WW 84, Black Widow, F9, Quiet Place 2, etc.,etc., etc. All the films that have been held back because there won’t be an appropriately sized audience are rolled into the cinemas. But, ultimately, people only have a certain amount of time and money so the audiences turn out not to be all that big after all; people start saying I can only see so many, I’ll wait until the rest come out on DVD.

    I’m sure the clever people in the studios have got all this sorted out but…

  6. You’re absolutely right. The backlog of movies is growing. And just how many movies can the average movie goer watch in a month? It’s going to be a mess and I doubt there’s that many clever people in the studios. Plus, there’s no data to reliably fall back on that might point out the best strategy.
