Christopher Nolan’s new film, as Deadline says, will be distributed by Universal, not Warner Bros. Pictures. He’s unlikely to be a streamer (because he’s fully aware that the red carpet treatments that Netflix and Apple may receive don’t apply to his peers) and is the only serious studio in the major studios. Competitors are likely WarnerMedia, Universal and Sony.He knew if Nolan wasn’t just going to return to the devil (the circumstances around him TenetReleases will probably not be repeated), Universal has been a strong competitor in the “non-Disney” theater competition for the past few years. So if Nolan didn’t go with an indie like A24, or an indie like Pure Flix or Asylum, this “bid war” would definitely have been a universal defeat.
I’m sure Tom Rothman insisted on Sony as the last old-fashioned movie studio with old-fashioned theater windows.In addition, the big first-window pay-TV streaming deal with Netflix means that A) there are no plans to launch Megabucks streaming service soon, and B) there is a cushion that justifies making more movies such as: To do Once upon a time in Hollywood Also Baby driver.. However, Sony basically leased the entire animation division to Netflix and Amazon (excluding theater distribution in China) and sold as many movies to streamers as Paramount.Paramount (which may be pivoting to streaming as a general strategy) has signed up for the release infamously Interstellar Worldwide, but then sold overseas distributions to Warner Bros. in exchange for $ 50 and a pack of beer (uh, uh Friday the 13th When South park Movie rights).
The only caveat I offer Universal is that it has a solid track record of being on the toes with Disney at global box office. mummyWhat is trying to mimic Disney’s success is that most of the movies are much cheaper than the $ 200 million Warner Bros. and Syncopy spent. Tenet.. The flick is probably starring Cillian Murphy as atomic bomb scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, but the cost is said to be closer. Dunkirk From ($ 95 million) The Dark Knight Rises ($ 250 million).Save for wild speed The movie, Universal, has released few movies since 2012 (Snow White and Huntsman When Battleship) Costs over $ 170 million Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom.. Many of their brands (Illumination, Blumhouse, etc.) aren’t wasting their budget.flat Jurassic World: Dominion It costs more than $ 200 million (probably) only for Covid-specific variables.
This does not mean that Nolan and Warner “never, never, never come back together.” But if I were Nolan, “Nolan would be a little angry at bullying and releasing WB. Tenet In the midst of the “pandemic” story that was popular last summer, the filmmaker was positioned as a bad guy when he opposed WB’s “put all 2021 releases in theaters and HBO Max” deal. The studio isn’t always responsible for the distorted media story, but it’s a huge filmmaker dealing with a behind-the-scenes ladder who speaks based on the box office of the people under him. It was strange to see it being blamed by a technology company Theatrical film as a loss leader boosting a streaming platform. No matter what happens Tenet He has now earned an ambitious $ 366 million worldwide.
However, Warner Bros. and / or Newline’s non-franchise (Good Liar), Adult distortion (Richard Jewel), original (Recollection) Or beginner (kitchen), Diverse (Dazzled by the light),comprehensive(Birds of prey) And often pretty good (On the way homeTheater studio programmers can’t blame WB for not making any more of these films for the theater. WB Gives James Wan $ 40 Million and Worth Credits To Make A Bonker-Like The Original Horror Movie With Banana R Rating Malignant, Just as commendable for actively courting John M. Chu’s $ 55 million In heights..It ’s the same as Lana Wachowski spending a visually dazzling time. Matrix resurrection What I’m guessing will simply infuriate those who are expecting Force AwakeningNostalgia fest style. It’s a shame that the first phase of DC Films didn’t go as planned, but WB is more than Batman or Harry Potter.
That said, Universal is probably perfect for a one-off, adult, award-winning historical drama. And that’s another wing that positions them as Disney’s biggest rivals (no superhero franchise, actually learning from the failed movie universe, etc.). If Nolan made Universal his new home, he would share a home with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin and Fast saga (For now) with a studio that has overseas rights to the James Bond series.It may change later I have no time to die (Especially if MGM was acquired by Universal), this is known as the Three Studio Competition (WB, Disney, Universal), where everyone else (Sony, Paramount, Lionsgate, etc.) competes for fourth place. As you can see, it makes watching theater movies even stronger. In a rapidly changing ecosystem.
