They are "waiting" on TROLLS:WORLD TOUR until the theatrical release date, if there are any theatres open by that point. {nm} notfabio Mar 16, 11:39

DL: Still Easter weekend April 10, will now go day-and-date in homes and on the big-screen. Antibody Mar 16, 11:45

It seems contingent if there are any theatres open by that point, so if they are blanket closed earlier, possibly sooner? {nm} notfabio Mar 16, 11:50

THR: Trolls World Tour will be made available on-demand at the same time they hit those theaters [TROL2] Antibody Mar 16, 11:40

The Hunt and The Invisible Man, as well as Focus Features' Emma available on-demand starting as early as Friday, March 20.. {nm} Antibody Mar 16, 11:41

Trolls World Tour will only be on-demand within the US markets however. Not going to be available for others. The_1250_Man Mar 17, 03:44

Wouldnt the OW now be pointless for this due to the fact that AMC and Regal have closed all cinemas? The_1250_Man Mar 18, 02:10

The theatres are closed will only be closed for weeks. Universal will regret this hastily decided move for years to come. {nm} EdwardHavens Mar 16, 11:44

Yep {nm} Moviesnob Mar 16, 11:46

The only other studio I can see doing this in the short term is Paramount EdwardHavens Mar 16, 11:55

I don't think Lionsgate would because it would torpedo their relationships with theatres, but Antebellum, Sprial, Run? notfabio Mar 16, 12:05

yeah but with Aronson there now i can see a real resistance. Plus they have all the Viacom money now Moviesnob Mar 16, 12:40

+1. I think these sorts of closures will last well into April if not all of it. ~JPV~ Mar 16, 11:59

Because of the time the virus is infectious. {nm} Catzan Mar 16, 11:59

Currently the most likely timeline based on CDC guidance would be early/Mid May and some theatres may open at limited capacity sooner. notfabio Mar 16, 12:18

34yrs in exhibition. I know my industry and how we think pretty well. EdwardHavens Mar 16, 11:59

Good luck with that. Seriously. {nm} ndmaster Mar 16, 13:04

Disney's less window destructive moves on STAR9 and FROZ2 was the break in the dam...I'd expect numerous home video releases to push up. notfabio Mar 16, 11:58

Frozen was already outside of the 90 day theatrical window. Star Wars was in its 85th day of theatrical release and... EdwardHavens Mar 16, 12:03

I think this website/game just became obsolete. RIP {nm} skunkrunner Mar 16, 13:09

As long as there is PINK2 there is hope! {nm} notfabio Mar 16, 13:12
