New Shang-Chi: And The Legend Of The Ten Rings Movie Poster Plus First Trailer To Drop In A Few Weeks


Recommended Posts

  • 4 weeks later...

According to Variety, for those not wanting to go see Shang-Chi: And The Legend Of The Ten Rings in movie theaters, you won't have wait long until it gets a home release. To be exact you will have to wait 45 days from it's September 3 theatrical release.

Before Covid, the industry standard was a 90-days exclusive viewing in theaters before a movie would see home release. As people have become spoiled during COVID of being able to watch a movie as soon at it premiers at home, I wouldn't be surprised if that 45 day grace period continues to shrink more and more.

Black Widow which is the next MCU movie to debut will be released on July 9 simultaneously at theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access. If more people choose to watch the movie at home than in theaters, that right there might be the Endgame for movie theaters as we know them.

Yeah, I can't say that I would ever feel the need to ever step in a movie theater again if this became the norm....and that's coming from a guy that has seen every Marvel/DC movie on opening weekend (except New Mutants) going all the way back to the 90's with the fist Michael Keaton Batman movie and the Blade and X-Men movies... long before the MCU ever existed...   I'd MUCH rather wait the 45 days and watch at home.

So weird to see folks predicting the death of the movie theater. No one knows what things will go back to, but look at it this way - Sports have always been available to watch for free on TV, but people have still paid exorbitant prices to see it live, because they love it. People have been watching films happily at home because that is the only option they have, but it isn't just watching the film, it is the shared experience of laughing, crying, screaming, and cheering with others. It is the popcorn and candy, and drinks. And, the model isn't designed to be profitable releasing films via streaming, unless the streaming services get WAY more subscribers and raise their prices substantially.  Streaming a movie will never have the financial impact of a theater release (the most successful make nearly, if not more than a billion dollars). Some theaters will of course close and never re-open, but theaters will bounce back. They are just too big a part of our lives

45 days between releases makes sense, does anyone actually watch a movie in the cinema over a month after it was released?

I mean, normally a movie earns like 95% of its revenue in the first 45 days. But that occurs when people know it will probably be months before they can see it on demand.  I wonder how many people will choose to wait it out since a month and a half is not that long. and of course the other question is how much will it cost to see as VOD - will it be the normal $5.99 or so, or will it be a higher price point

I have no problem waiting 45 days to see this. I plan on watching Black Widow at home and have no problem paying $30 to watch it because that is still cheaper and easier than the cost of 2 people with snacks going to see it in the movie theater, at least in my area. I don't count the cost of subscribing to Disney+ in that, just the extra $30 for the premium access. I would subscribe to Disney+ for Disney+ shows whether I was able to watch movies like Black Widow the same day its released in theaters or not. The price of 2 adult movie tickets in the evening plus popcorn, candy and drink for 2 people is more than $30.  I have no problem if a movie gets a simultaneous release at home and in theaters so for those who actually prefer watching a movie in theaters still can, but I feel the days of trying to force people to go to the theater to watch it first are coming to an end.

I dunno about 45 days but I think it's a a big mistake to release Black Widow on Disney+ so soon, movie being on disney + means that in less than 4 hours it's all over the internet and most people all over the world will just pirate it, this will kill and bomb already much smaller box office Black Widow was projected to earn due to covid.
