    I think hardcore movie fans like myself and others will go to the movies. Even w/ the 45 day window. I was tempted to wait just the week for Army of the Dead but I couldn't. I wanted to go see that in the theater SO BADLY and I absolutely loved it. Going to see A Quiet Place 2 and Cruella when they release.

    The fact that you don't need to wear a mask after the vaccine is a complete lie!!!! You should wear your mask since you still can get sick but it just won't be as bad if you were not vaccinated . Also it is recommended to stay inside after the vaccine for about 15 days since your immune system is still adapting to the vaccine.

    well the problem with D+ is the movie window AND the rules in other countries... in France a movie released in theater should wait 3years to be out in a streaming platform... so D+ in France just got Infinity war... so it's not that attractive because you won't have any new theatrical release to boost them... luckily the got streaming shows (Mando and Marvel),and few movies (Soul) but that's it !

    that Cdc director is carazay , the vaccine isn't even a vaccine, Dr. Fauci said it's foreign dna that is introduced into you to get your immune system buzzing so that when you do encounter the virus, your immune system will already be on, like it's not on already? and that doesn't mean that you can't transmit it. so if you get the shot and then get it, and not wear a mask and cough in a theater , that's a hundred more cases you've created.

  • futuramayeah

    this might sound controversial but maybe only do movies in a theater for two weeks, that would give more movies chances to be in theaters in a normal non virus world. but also that would get the movies to dvd and disney plus whathave you quicker

    also if people aren't going to see a movie within two weeks of it coming out, what are the chances of them deciding to see it? unless they are stretching out the movies' stay in theaters so that people can sprinkle there visits to not be in a crowded theater?

  • CupcakeFlavorSoda
    CupcakeFlavorSodaMonth ago

    One part of the conversation I haven't seen is how many theaters will not open back. Personally, I won't be going to the movies as frequently as I used to because my local cinema did not survive the pandemic, so every time I want to see a movie at a theater I would have to drive an hour each way. Post-lockdown, theaters trips are going to be reserved for event films that everyone in my household wants to see.

    I think the 45-day window is great for the general audience. It may suck for the theaters but if someone don't see a movie within a month or so, they probably wasn't planning on seeing it anyway.

  • bitogre

    To get me to go back to Disney+, they need to admit that they did not treat Gina Carano with respect in the way that fired her. Firing Kathleen Kennedy would be one way of addressing that (and some of the mistakes made with the Star Wars Sequel).

    I think the thing I find really frustrating is the Premier Access, I understand it but it doesn't make sense to me. I live in the UK and I could go see a film for £7. It makes more sense for me to wait it out or go to the cinema (when they open) But I get it works for families, but the price point is just too high for a platform you're already paying for!

  • KBfromSC

    If a person will wait 45 days to see a movie they weren't that excited to see the movie in the first place. I would argue most people have no idea what or how long a theatrical window is they simply see a trailer and decide if they will go to the movie or not.

    Netflix is huge in Asia, with their korean tv series and anime. A lot of people love those series, especially here in SEA. Netflix also produce and fund a lot of local contents, from series to films, and it help develop many state's entertainment industries. Netflix also have a lot of local contents in their catalog and this help perseve local contents from the never-to-be-seen-again-after-their theatrical-release status. Other streaming services should consider making more local contents, or at least, add local contents to their catalogs to beat Netflix internationally in streaming.

    The only Marvel content on Disney+ I like is the more out-there stuff like WandaVision, What If? and Loki, the rest of their slate doesn't seem to have a lot of that so it falls to Star Wars to keep me subscribed, I'm a bigger SW fan by miles too so when things get into full swing and we get all these shows one after another, I'll be happy to stay subscribed.

    The "No mask if vaccinated" should have been the rule from day 1. Either the vaccines work and you don't have to wear a mask or the vaccines don't work and you shouldn't waste your time getting it and keep wearing your mask

    This. It's common sense. Either you believe in vaccines or you don't. I don't know what people like Grace want exactly, spend the rest of their lives indoor because they have 0.00000000000001% chance to die of Covid while vaccinated ?

    Grace, couldn't agree with you more! Disney really needs to add new content. I've had it for 2 years now, and they've had one real life STAR WARS show and two for Marvel. I understand the COVID factor, but Netflix is faced with same problem, and there's a new series every week. Disney+ should also get edgier! Why shouldn't Free Guy or Deadpool be on the service?

    Here in my corner of the world, Disney+ has very little content and we don't have access to Hulu either. So, if they at least turned available the content they they already own, it would be a great incentive to keep subscriptions and get new ones. Not everyone has the means to sign to a streaming service and a VPN provider combined.

    @supermax64 I know they produce a lot of foreign content but they don't buy enough old stuff. There are lots of old films and TV which are hard to find. For example, Latin telenovellas are very popular internationally and no other streaming service but Netflix has any. However, Netflix only has a couple, they could add more.

    Disney's biggest asset is also its biggest weakness.
