In these complicated times for cinema, could streaming blockbusters be the right way out? We are looking into the matter.
It's official, Wonder Woman 1984 will hit theaters next December, but that's not all. In the United States, the blockbuster will indeed be released both in theaters, but also on the HBOMax platform. On the Disney side, this option was completely rejected for Black Widow , which will be released exclusively in theaters in May 2021. Conversely, the live action Mulan was broadcast on Disney +. Superheroes are not the only ones concerned, since Die Can Wait , the latest James Bond starring Daniel Craig, has been at the center of rumors attesting to a possible takeover by Apple TV for nearly $ 600 million. The MGM, however, quickly put an end to the speculation. At a time when the release calendars keep moving, the question of streaming keeps coming back and appears to be the best solution for blockbusters. Is this really the case?
