Depending on what date you choose:
Oct. 5th, because DN had its world premiere on that day?
That's still 1 3/4 years away.
In UK terms (and US too), the expectation is that the most vulnerable should be vaccinated by April, therefore ending the cycle of lockdowns at the moment including the one UK is about to announce. This would put NTTD in a very similar situation to Tenet last summer - almost identical as I'll be surprised if the safety measures like masks and distancing in cinemas go, except probably more public confidence with vaccine being around. So therefore does NTTD take this, or do they push again just for the opportunity to get a billion and have the whole world at full strength?
WW3 IS happening.Did they announce a sequel to Terminator:Dark Fate mere days after it opened? No.Did they announce a sequel to the latest Charlies Angels reboot mere days after it opened? No.
As I see things they have two choices, since an hybrid release looks unlikely: release the film sometime in 2021 once theaters will be able to work with a full capacity in key markets, likely targeting a break even gross within the $600/650 million range, or waiting for 2022 (losing another $30 million) in order to make almost a pre Covid gross.
No one said it isn’t happening. It’s not a fast track, it’s marketing. You don’t know the biz. They feared Jenkin’s vision, they feared the falling ratings, they feared word of mouth and polarization... and they were right to fear, it fell 67% in its second week.
April is too close. Delaying a whole year just to make a Tenet kind of gross? Doesn’t make sense to me. Anyway, hopefully summer releases will stick this time. Theaters need cash.
Anything could happen. The world is in chaos.
In what sense is it a safer bet?
You should just stay patient and keep waiting.
Unfortunately, even if the film is delayed again, we won't have that guarantee. So even if you support the film being delayed to November or even some point in 2022, you still won't necessarily get the film after all that waiting. So what then?
"Patience has its limits" - and what happens when that limit has been met? Are you simply not going to see the film then or something? I'm just curious what some are getting at when they say things like that.
Wait some more?
Nothing in life is ever guaranteed.
You only have two choices: Wait, or give up.
Nobody made promises to anyone; they shot the film, slated it for release, and it's been delayed numerous times due to a global pandemic. We're not owed anything. You'll have to keep waiting for its release like everyone else.
Man a global pandemic it’s not EoN fault. Because of Covid a lot of people lost their jobs, parents or friends, hope and even dignity. Many lost their future, many will lose it, and it’s not even their fault.
In the current world waiting one or two years for a film to come out it’s not a big deal, since at one point it will come out and besides, it looks awesome.
It's very hard to argue against this without simply repeating reasons stated numerous times, as it is evidently purely based in emotion and not the cold hard facts of business. I'm sorry the repeated delays are causing you so much consternation - but for you, it's just a film. For the people who invested in it, it isn't. You must keep reminding yourself of that.
I'd love the film too, but I'm just glad to make it home from work each day still healthy and knowing my family and friends are also.
It was meant as a general swipe at the number of people who have expressed the delays as something unfair and promised and all that. This is an unprecedented time in our time. We're making sacrifices and there isn't much we can do about it. It's just harder for some of us to understand how not getting to see NTTD will make the experience any less satisfying having to wait longer.
That's not EoN fault. They want NTTD released more thank anyone, it's their business. Keep it in mind.
