Different worlds. Different stories.
Can't really be compared.
Warner Brothers made this big move because they need to boost members on their
HBO Max streaming service. It's the best of the new streaming services (imo
) but is trailing Disney+ & Netflix by tens of millions of members for a couple reasons (namely lack of brand recognition
) so this is a good way to really kick up their membership next year.
Khara doesn't own a streaming service.
And WB is also doing this now because the US is likely going to trail behind the rest of the world in Covid recovery because we're a mess full of selfish people.
Recovery in the US in 2021 is going to be very staggered. And only one movie has made over $50 million in the US since March.
Japan has a movie right now breaking box office records every week. Despite the risks there's currently a market there for going to theaters.
Delay is very slim..
Eva truly is a story that repeats.
This is a funny reversal of early in the year when some of us here were saying the movie was going to be delayed and others were saying "Never gonna happen."
