This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Hmm watched the first one for all those gorgeous legs and ended up loving it. This new movie doesn't appear to be a powerful sequel like Dark Knight Rises, more like piggy backing on the success of the original one. Much like that Bizarre fast & furious spin off with aliens and all sorts of crazy things.

Wut?
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

And now they've pushed the release date back to December 25th.  >:(

Frankly, I think that's a mistake.

Long as pushing back the release was not to film new footage to appease the woke cult.

They should bite the bullet and release to streaming. It sucks, but if they wait for the beer bug to be "over", they could wind up delaying the movie indefinitley.

Tenet opened at $20 million its first weekend. That suggests that audiences are willing to show up for a big movie.

What they needed to do, IMHO, is to use September to ramp that up instead of cooling it off.

Besides, ANY box office is better than no box office. And by stalling their 2020 summer releases, they are delaying their 2021 releases, and in the end that means making less money, and having to hold onto more debt for longer.

They could also try pushing Blu-ray much harder than they currently are. Do a premium Blu-ray release for $50, or even $100, and make the extras worth it. I would pay $50 to get a WW84 blu-ray in my hands today, particularly if it had a good gimmick, like a genuine Polaroid of Gal Gadot.

$20 million is almost nothing, particularly when you consider the lack of competition and pent up demand. One of the biggest problems is a lot of the big opening weekend markets are entirely closed -- when there are no theaters open in Los Angeles, San Fran, and New York the traditional launch plans have to be scuttled.

While a premium Blu-ray is a possible alternative, Blu-rays are a dying medium. The world is moving to streaming, which makes Disney's experiment more interesting. According to the latest reports, the release of the live action Mulan as premium content on the Disney+ streaming platform ($30 on top of the $7/month) has apparently raised more money than Tenet. An analytics company is estimating that 9 million subscribers paid extra for Mulan, totaling $261 million. Which is pure Disney profit, since they don't have to split the box office with the theater chains. Tenet by contrast raised $207 million, and only $29 million of that came from the US market, so the studio ended up with only a small fraction of that money.

I suspect that one reason why the studios are waiting for theaters to reopen is piracy. Once you release a show on disc or streaming, it shows up on torrents very soon.

As for the death of physical media, all I can say is that I still buy Blu-rays, and books, and the occasional CD.

For me, Blu-Ray and CDs are dying. I do still buy physical books quite often.
I have a few favorite movies on Blu-Ray but don't really add to that ever.
I'm old enough that I can live without theaters.

I do a lot of streaming. Between me and my brother, we have subs to Netflix, Hulu and Disney+. But if the service goes out, permanently or (more likely in the short term) temporarily, we don't have access to any of the content. So we still buy Blu Rays and DVDs.
