In the past year and a half, little can be done about the state of the cinema other than to attract the hand. Clearly, kita na done amua fair share. And really, what else is there? With the crash of Covid-19 on Earth, theaters were closed, and that was the biggest mine of the world’s problems.

Do they have to keep all the releases until the theaters are fully open as well? Thrown all over the streaming? Something hybrid? At this point the industry tried almost everything – with different consequences.
In the midst of this — at least now, during the usual summer blockbuster season — are two key players with two distinct approaches: Warner Bros. and Disney. The former announced back in December last year it would release the full slate of 2021 movies on its streaming service, HBO Max, on the same day the movies hit theaters. Meanwhile, Disney, started the year exploring a model where it released movies in theaters but also offered it to Disney + at the same time for 30 dollars a pop.

Free Guy was able to overcome box office speculations, even with a theatrical release only and arriving as the Covid-19 Delta variety began to surge. Next: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which will be Marvel’s first exclusive theatrical release in two years when it falls on Sept. 3. Hopefully that eternal could also be a release in theaters; Fans of cineastes and comics can only hope that it will be given to theaters on multiple screens to allow everyone to get a distant social look.
