Page 1 of Whats going to happen with new film releases?
Being a myreviewer website, this website has a big part of it dedicated to movies and reviews.
Films are well planned months in advance for release at the cinema, so whats going to happen now to new films, seeing that all cinemas are closed during this covid-19 situation? (and quite rightly so).
There are adverts on TV still showing upcoming film releases.
I was looking forward to Sonic the Hedgehog movie, with the grand-children, but now what is the way forward?
most films (at least Morbius, Peter Rabbit, and a few others) are being pushed back to next year, i think one of the Disney ones is going straight to their "new" streaming service.
Sonic is available "by other means"
Disney streaming..would that be Mulan (the real actors movie)?
quite fancy seeing that.
Bond was the first to get he big push. many thought it was over-reacting but in hindsight it was the smartest move. You're not going to get any ads for major releases any time soon, although the kid's channels are still plugging 'Onward', but those channels are more or less automatons anyway.
Maverick (Top Gun) is now November, i think, but I'm more gutted about Ghostbusters 3 more than anything.
Onward might be the one going straight to streaming.
various updates here:
would be good if at least some of the big studios released them on free-to-air
a sign of good faith!

Let's see some virtue signalling actors try that...
looks like new Trolls film is going straight to streaming
Mulan will be released on Disney+ for an additional premium fee ($30) on September 4th.
It will still open theatrically in countries where Disney+ is not available, or where cinemas have re-opened.
No idea if that means the UK, but really it will be available worldwide within 10 mins of it being released online anyway. Yo ho ho!
I've seen some new releases go straight to Amazon Prime Video for at least rent, not sure about buying, but this is surely part of the solution moving forward...
