Announced today that they've changed the release plan and it's now coming to Disney Plus on July 3rd!
Good news for people who want to see this as soon as possible, and extremely bad news for the future of movie theaters if companies like Disney are moving something scheduled for October of next year to streaming.
Yet, they are hellbent on keeping Black Widow's release to theaters.
Pretty sure Black Widow stands to make a few hundred million more than Hamilton could ever hope to match. And that's before the international returns and the press coverage.
Yeah, but they also put Onward on there, which being a big Pixar release would have also been a big money maker
Not with the state of the theatre industry. Onward was already out and had a solid week and a half before Coronavirus imploded the industry. I'm not sure it was a "big enough" film to warrant a rerun when theatres eventually reopen.
We're not likely to see theatres open until August, which is pretty close to Onward's likely home video release slate. Putting it on Disney+ also became a boon to the service that allowed Disney to maximize the film's marketing, and probably boosted subscribers as people started to be put in isolation.
