I'd sure be nervous about sitting on an investment of a couple hundred million with no payoff in sight. Also, MGM would have to pump in many more millions ramping up promos yet again prior to theatrical launch.

I suppose many theatre goers have had plenty of time to die before seeing the movie.

I have been watching some other ones of recent, they should make a deal with a streamer $400 to $600 million is ideal.

It's going to be tough. By the time people start going back to theatre's there's going to be a backlog of movies for them to see. It's probably going to be a tighter release schedule for a while (blockbuster after blockbuster). They're probably going to create movie fatigue which will impact the box office. I don't think movies companies are really factoring this in.

Plus it doesn't seem like a vaccine (if developed) is going to be very widespread by the spring. ugh... could be a while before people are comfortable going back, and then once they are, how many movies are they actually going to want to see.

I'm little surprised movies are filming right now, given the backlog...

The thing now is a studio like Disney can afford to film movies, decide to release them on their platform and they could save money. Let's take for example the next Spiderman. Let's say it cost 200M$ to make, normally they would also spend 200M$ on marketing around the world for the movie, bringing the total budget around 400M$. If they don't have to advertise their movies, and they bring in new subs, it could be a win win for them.

Right now Mulan already had a marketing campaign done for it, so they wanted to bring as much revenue as possible with it. Same goes for No Time to Die, that's why they don't want to sell the movie below 600 millions.

Plus MGM borrowed the $ to make the film and they have to pay $1,000,000.00 in interest every month it remains unreleased. They cannot afford to have a Tenet-level box office in theatres.
