Is this a joke? No brend new studio theatrical release has yet skipped a physical release. Of course there is going to be one. I don't see any reason to think a disc release won't be successful. It probably won't become the best seller of the year or anything, but there are people who want it and will get it enough to make it worth WB's while to release it. They want to make a s much money on this film as they can, so restricting it to a streaming service exclusively is counterintuitive. There are still people who don't stream. It's a smaller portion of the potential audience, but they exist.producing a disc in any format would just be more wasted money.
I read somewhere that the cost to produce a new disc is +/- $6,000. I don't remember where though so if I'm wrong on that, someone should feel free to correct me. WB is easily going to make more than $6,000 on a physical release of Tenet. I think it will easily outperform other titles of its gross range because there are lots of people who won't go to the theater right now but will be happy to check it out on disc. If they put it out in December, you'll also get people impulse buying for holiday gifts.
I know I'm going to buy the Blu-ray as a blind purchase as soon as it is made available to me.
