just continued release date tinkering.
If November doesn't happen, I think we will just see 2020 being a wash, and everything planned for 2020 pushed to 2021, everything for 2021 pushed to 2022 and so on.If November REALLY ends up not happening, would they consider going straight to digital? I’d hate to not see a Bond film on the big screen.
I think we will still have the month of November.
I don't think we'll necessarily still be under quarantine, but I think it's possible that mass gatherings like concerts and movies may be among the last things that return to normal.I hope you guys are wrong because I'd hate to still be cooped up at home in November.
But yes, if theaters are not open by November, they should absolutely keep this on the shelf. Daniel Craig's final Bond film needs to be a theatrical event whenever that is possible. I don't want to see it for the first time on my television. And I don't think MGM will do that. They are too reliant on the box office success of Bond to ever let it go to digital first. There's a reason why they were the first to officially delay their movie before any theaters in the U.S. were closed. Bond is their bread and butter and they know it. Sending this film to digital only would be a disaster for their company.
Probably, but I'm still hopeful that we can have that by November. As I said in the Wonder Woman thread relative to whether or not 1984 will get delayed again, I'm going to assume the current release date will stick until told otherwise. If they have to delay things again, then they have to delay things again, but thinking that I'll get to see Bond in November is part of what is keeping me from going completely nuts right now. So as far as I am concerned, right now, I plan to be seeing Bond in 227 days when it opens.mass gatherings like concerts and movies may be among the last things that return to normal.
The pressure is down to when and if a move is made. Studios are quickly snapping up 2021 release dates as dozens of big movies are seeing delays of over a year. There is an uncertainty that cinemas will be widely reopened by November. California recently published its phased re-opening plan and it is probable that cinemas will only be running at 25% capacity by November.
