Overview Of The Film Industry.

The emergence of coronavirus interrupted businesses inclusive of the film industries. Theatres across several countries are not open since people need to observe social distancing amid this crisis.

Studios that had already set their release project dates will have to adjust them just as Disney has done. For example, Mulan was to be out last month, but its release will be on July 24th. Black Widow, the most expected project, was to be out early next month, but its release date is to be on November 6th. Artemis Fowl’s first appearance is on Disney+ and was out in May.

The Future Of Movie Industry.

“To fill up a stadium with over 50000 people you do not have to blackout over 7.9 million people to have a successful business. I think sports found a way to embrace both a live experience. There is nothing like going to a live sporting function but also to have a very hearty experience for a wider audience.”

Jeffrey strongly believes that the industry will support viewing from home and also viewing out of the home. There is a space for them today, tomorrow and a decade from this moment.

This is like HBO’s whereby it is offering TV shows and movie contents free for a month since yesterday. The main purpose of entertainment companies offering free services is to keep the people entertained despite the long lockdowns within countries.
