How Long Are You Willing To Wait To See Black Widow And Mulan? It May Not Be Too Long

Black Widow and Mulan

There are a lot of movies that should be out right now or within the next few weeks, but thanks to COVID-19 it isn’t happening. Some studios have pushed their releases back and some are releasing their films for video-on-demand services. That may be okay for a horror movie like The Invisible Man but what about tentpole films like  Mulan and Black Widow? Those films were supposed to make 100s of millions of dollars for Disney, maybe even over a billion for Mulan considering its connection to China and the massive market over there.

We do know that Disney has delayed Mulan and the next MCU film, but what if they did what others are doing. Well… Look, she’s as hit or miss as anyone. She’s been right and she’s been wrong, but we’ll take a look at what Grace has to say:

So… We’ve been talking about this for weeks now. What is the future of film in the theaters? We’ve discussed theories on LRMornings and Los Fanboys but the truth is nobody knows for certain. I support the idea of releasing films for rent at home. However, I am still a sucker for the theater experience and want that to remain an option, especially for big SFX films like the MCU provides.

Black Widow and Mulan would be great to experiment with. Big movies released straight to your living room, will they make money? There’s some question as to what services to use, how much does the VOD service get from the sale/rental, can a studio like Disney put something on its own service, Disney+, but behind a paywall? So many logistical questions that I would love to see answered. Of course, with Black Widow being an MCU film, I want to see it in the theaters. However, if it came between waiting six more months or seeing it at home, I’d choose home. Same with Mulan, a film that looks to be an epic war movie.

Depending on what Disney does, and how much money they make, they could be setting the future of film consumption.

Do you want to see these films now on your home screen, or would you rather wait for and see them in theaters? Let us know in the comments below.
