I'm reading the article and since when has Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone had a 3D conversion?
My impression was that WB is going to do it specifically for this release. Someone who actually keeps up with 3D should feel free to correct me if I am wrong but I've never heard of it being shown that way before, so it seems like something that would have to be newly created.I'm reading the article and since when has Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone had a 3D conversion?
Serious question, do you expect the whole world to just stop for the next six or more months? How exactly will that work? What happens when people run out of money and can't eat (something that's already happening to some people)? Any scenario I can think of involving that long of a work stoppage results in a horrifying increase in the level of violent crime everywhere and poverty that is far worse than the coronavirus.Expect the rest of the studios to follow.

Dude. All I said is that I think the rest of the studios will follow. How did you extrapolate that serious question from my statement? My comment was relevant to this thread.Serious question, do you expect the whole world to just stop for the next six or more months?
Because I see one as a natural extension of the other. The only reason that studios will not release new movies for that long is because the rest of the world is still on pause for that same period of time. The movie studios aren't going to wait any longer than any other business to get back to business.Dude. All I said is that I think the rest of the studios will follow.

I can see that but I don't think it'll be that long of a time (even if it should be) for studios and theater chains to decide that they have get back to making money. Maybe sports and concerts will have to wait longer because that's thousands of people in close proximity but I think theaters will have seating that spaces people out like they were instituting before the shutdown.I actually think they will since their entire source of income is dependent upon audiences sitting in close proximity. The same goes for sports.
Yeah, the studios have a vested interest in people returning to theaters too so I'd imagine that they'll give them something to play. My guess is that early on, they'll play some big hits from the past few years. That way there'd be no risk because there won't be any real ad campaign and the movie will have already turned a profit so it's attractive to the studios.I honestly think mid-June is wishful thinking but I understand they need to have a business plan in place should that actually prove feasible. And I would venture to guess that if the chains reopened which amounts to putting thousands of screens back in play, at least one studio will be more than happy to give them something.
