  • If Disney truly thinks cinema's are dead why do Black Widow, Chang-Chi, Jungle Cruise, Cruella, etc all still have theatrical dates in 2021? I read their press release as a shift in focus of production and obviously not a great sign for movie theate…

  • Sorry if this has been asked before (searching in these forums is not user-friendly) but are the 4k UHD versions available to rent on Amazon the same transfers as the versions on iTunes?

  • I think If I can maybe phrase what DaltonCraig007 is saying in nicer terms is that, yes, we are only 2/3 weeks into Tenet's theatrical run. But it is very unlikely a drastic turnaround is going to happen, especially in terms of the US box office. It…
