Oh yeah absolutely true. I've seen and felt with my own eyes what covid can do to people. But I do understand Nolan a little bit with trying to 'save' the industry. It's just a bit ignorant. But I don't think he can be held responsible for what Warner did with the streaming thing. That would've happened any way I think.
That'll probably happen too, and I think the indie theaters will disappear with them. I don't think my small niche theater will play marvel films. I don't think the audience that normally goes to small theaters will want to watch WW1984 in their indie theater. And people who go to the big popcorn noisy theaters won't go to the indie theaters quickly. I don't think they care about the film as much (not sure, can't speak for them), they just want the experience. You don't get that big movie theater experience in indie theaters (at least not here in the netherlands). What I think will happen is that in the coming period the most succesfull movies will be the small/medium budget general blockbusters that cost 20-50 million to make. They apply to a big audience and aren't as expensive to make as other films. But I'm not sure, nobody knows.What will disappear even more is the smaller, riskier movies that don't have built-in franchise fans.
To be fair, though, that was back at the time when other major blockbusters were still being delayed month by month, so it seemed like there had been a slight pause and then things would pick up again. Also, George Clooney's posturing notwithstanding, I find it hard to believe that Nolan was the only director pushing the studio to release a blockbuster.I get he was trying to save it to a degree but unfortunately he’s come across like one of his characters in Tenet and in the real life looks ignorant.
Ann Sarnoff of WB has already admitted that Tenet being released and underperforming because Nolan wanted it released then has led them to their new strategy. So yeah was kinda him I’m afraid
NEWSLETTER10 seems to have unfortunately expired. WELCOME works fine, but only if you're signed in with a new account that hasn't used it before.Can someone try the discount codes on WB shop for me, i can't get WELCOME, WELCOME10, NEWSLETTER or NEWSLETTER10 to work and i have tried them on a new account.
I would expect these will continue so long as there is a market for them (and profit to be had). Mulan still got a physical release.Closer to home for this forum, though, I expect that instant streaming will lead to the end of physical media releases, so our steelbook days may be numbered.
The Mandalorian is a series of 2 seasons with a third to to comeBut The Mandalorian hasn't, and that's what I think is closer to the model we're headed toward now.
I'm skeptical. They'll use it to draw in new subscribers for as long as it has that value, and at that point, how much profit would they expect from a physical release, once they've gotten everyone who wants to see it to subscribe at least long enough to watch it? Other limited and complete series (Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Man in the High Castle, many others) have not been released to disc, and even Star Wars: Resistance only ever got a DVD release, not blu-ray.A physical disc release of seasons 1/2/3 will happen likely after season 3 has completed broadcast on Disney+
The Mandalorian is a series of 2 seasons with a third to to come
Season 2 Episode 8 not on disney + until December 18th
A physical disc release of seasons 1/2/3 will happen likely after season 3 has completed broadcast on Disney+
I did not mention all 3 seasons would be released on discs at same time in my postWhy would they release seasons 1 / 2 / 3 at the same time when they havent released the 1st season yet?
So they are gonna wait for three years before releasing any physical releases? It doesn’t make any sense.
Im pretty sure that ethnosax was implying that there wouldnt be any physical releases of The Mandalorian.
I did not mention all 3 seasons would be released on discs at same time in my post
I said after season 3 has completed been broadcast on Disney+ you likely will see physical disc release of seasons 1/2/3
Disney would likely do each season separate on physical media but don't expect thast to happen until at least after season 3 been watched on Disney+
I would estimate at least 1 year possibly longer after season 3 been seen on Disney+ before you will see season 1 on Blu-ray
It's a TV series it's not a film release from disney big difference
The purpose of Disney+ is to get subscribersOk i give up Paul. You win Haha.
I was meaning - why would they start to release blurays only after season 3 has aired? Why not straight after season 1?
Heck, they may aswell start doing it after season 4. The more the merrier
