These films have such short post-production schedules (roughly 4 months, literally the shortest out of any blockbuster franchise by several months) that there wouldn't have been enough time to do reshoots anyway.
I would be willing to bet that EON's test screenings are likely not the usual kind, where members of the public are dragged off the street to watch an edit of the movie and then give comments on a card.
Given the short post-production period and their secrecy, they are probably more like the Disney Star Wars screenings; only sections of the movie are shown, and just to members of the company and their relatives.
In this case, they usually do this to test what people think of the editing and placement of certain scenes or the crowd's thoughts on which scenes/shots had the most impact on them, for use in the marketing.
Accessible? stop stalking the woman on whatsapp... :-?
This is big. Immediate digital releases for some Universal films. "Trolls World Tour" "The Hunt" and The Invisible Man".
LET ME STREAM IT PLEASE.
I suppose the difference is that those are, in comparison to NTTD, very small budgeted films.
Trolls is $125m so assume Trolls 2 isnt too far off.
Invisible Man is $7m and has already done $125m WW so is well in profit.
The Hunt is $14m so again really low risk.
NTTD is nearer $250m. Aint gonna get that back on streaming,
Quite. They're non-franchises that can afford to be released this way, this quickly.
I do wonder how much they would make back if, hypothetically, something of NTTD's size were to be released that way? I can't imagine they'd get anything close to their production budget back (Netflix did pay $100million for Friends, though!).
It'd be considered a write off. And, taking into account that EON didn't even stick the meagre-budgeted The Rhythm Section on streaming when it seemed doomed to fail, I doubt it would ever be considered for their tentpole, despite wishful thinking saying otherwise.
I sure don't want to rent it, stream it, or see it any other way. If we are still avoiding theaters by then, I'll have to reconsider. But seeing a new Bond film in any way other than a theater is something I'd never want.
I wholeheartedly agree.
No thanks. If I have a choice of seeing it now streamed OR waiting for theater release in Nov./Dec., I will gladly wait for the theater release. I want to experience this film properly, get the full amount of enjoyment from it. That will not happen for me unless in a good theater.
Perhaps a poor choice of words.. :D
Plus, big franchise films will likely remain as theatrical releases. If the situation is the same or worse in November, then perhaps things will change. We will have to wait till November for any more news....Just my take.
Also, Justin Kroll from Variety echoes these thoughts:
Presuming we won’t but have we have official word?
I’d love it now, it’ll at least gives us something nice to enjoy currently but I think it’s highly unlikely.
Says 13 november now
Funny how I can spot the fake ones quite easily now: the real ones have much more delicate headlamp surrounds!
Found the bottom photo in 4k by googling Aston Martin DB5 Matera and sorting by only large results, for those interested.
I doubt it the track names might give away the plot I know I felt like Spectre's did.
This is big but there is context:
1. Theaters are closed
2. These films have a limited box office ceiling and moderate budgets
3. The schedule will be packed with bigger, more important films when theaters reopen
I have a fairly decent home cinema setup and I still want to see this in my local multiplex!
Edit: I wanted to add here, that I am a bit biased. With a 10 month old at home, my wife and I don't get to go to the cinema as often (read: never :)) ) Usually when our daughter is asleep, we rent whatever is available , usually something few months old or last years films.
