Re: Will November still be the release month?

Why would a conservative political writer know more than us about NTTD?

It’s going to be one hell of a summer in 2021

Re: Will November still be the release month?

My guess would be April 2021.....Easter weekend, just like the last date except a year later. IMO.

US is only opening in select cities, though. Not a total rollout. And as we sit here today there’s no way to tell where those cities might be. Can’t imagine that’s going to be appealing to EON. And a second wave in Europe and Asia is both likely and would further derail the release in November.

A new TENET release date is confirmed every couple weeks. These plans all mean less than nothing until they happen, sadly.

Disney just pulled a wild move - MULAN "in some theaters" (probably meaning in countries that got their act together) but same-day premiere on Disney+ for an additional $30 rental  ajb007/amazed

That's Disney putting their own thing on their own platform.

Disney can wear the cost much better than EON.

Disney also have a heap of other theatrical releases that they've pushed back to next year

Let’s not forget the Universal/Comcast connection. I could see the same thing happening for Bond. All depends on how much control EON has under their distribution contract. It might not ultimately be their call.

EON won't try that, although I sincerely wish it. The risk is too big...

Another possibility would be some kind of special package including for instance a visit to Pinewood and then a private projection.
Of course, such an exclusive offer would be expensive (let us say about 300 £ per person) and I suppose only those who really can't wait until november (if not later) would consider it, but at least it would be fair from EON.

After all, it's like luxury goods: if you really want it and if you can afford it, then why would you have to deprive yourself ?

Now that AMC and Universal have cut a deal, I don't see the possibility of that type of scenario for NTTD until EON, et al believe they have no other choice and would loose too much money. Universal has the international distribution rights, which is obviously big but my guess is that EON and MGM still call the shots. The reality is, as recent reports indicated that there is no debt remaining on NTTD, the producers are in a much better position to wait this out. Of course while they wait it out they are still not making any money on NTTD (and of course having to ratchet up another promotional campaign for the film at some point will cut into profits), but EON/MGM continue to make a tidy sum everyday on the Bond back catalog.

I know they're trying to make their money back but I'm shocked at the premium they're charging—it works out to be around $40 Aussie dollars (more than double a normal movie ticket here), and that's on top of the Disney+ monthly charge...because you need to be a paying subscriber before you're allowed to pay to see the movie.

Well, it is Disney, where they're used to charging you admission and then charging you for a bunch of things after admission.  ajb007/lol

Mulan is an experiment, and Disney has said as much. Really it's their workaround for releasing it in markets where theaters can open and trying to recoup in countries where theaters can't.

I'm not saying MGM/Eon will do this, or this is a new model that will be emulated elsewhere, but it's important to pay attention to everyone's experiments as they try to navigate a new normal.

Universal/Comcast have Peacock, their own fledgling premium VOD service. They could ostensibly throw a ton of money at MGM and Eon to make NTTD the thing that pushes subscriptions, the way Disney+ used Hamilton to boost subscribers. Eon/MGM doesn't want to do that today. But the rules are out the window, and the rules change every week.

Re: Will November still be the release month?

I think the powers that be need to really think about this. For me each Bond film is a kind of time capsule for their time, fashion, technology etc obviously with plenty of bells and whistles. It would be all too easy to keep delaying this with the product looking dated which would be a huge shame.

Yes. Considerably!
