Zitat von: undefinedFox will be adapting the novel and is said to be looking to make this a big budget film. The novel has been adapted many times before on film with two notable adpatations starrin Clark Gable 1935 and Charlton Heston in 1972. Chris Sanders who directed The Croods, How To Train Your Dragon and Lilo & Stitch has been tapped to direct the film with Michael Green recently of Logan fame writing the script. The film will be highlighting the work of Technoprops, a special effects studio whose founder, Glenn Derry, had previously worked on Avatar. Ford was slated to be appearing in a fifth Indiana Jones movie, but that's been pushed back now to 2021
ZitatUniversal Claims 'Trolls World Tour' Shattered On-Demand Record The film scored the biggest opening day and weekend of any digital title in history, if the studio is correct.While there are no numbers being made available, Universal said Monday morning that Trolls World Tour scored the biggest digital debut of all time over Easter weekend.The studio decided to break theatrical windows and make the DreamWorks Animation title available to rent on premium VOD for 48 hours for $19.99 after virtually all theaters closed across the U.S. -- save for a smattering of drive-ins -- and much of the world due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. (The movie was also made available to cinemas that are still open, although Universal isn't reporting grosses.)Trolls World Tour secured the the biggest opening day and opening weekend ever for any digital title, according to Universal insiders.Among Universal titles, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom previously held the crown for biggest opening day. Insiders say Trolls did 10 times more business on its opening day.Trolls World Tour was the No. 1 title across all major on-demand platforms, topping expectations on digital distributors including Amazon, Comcast, Apple, Vudu, Google/YouTube, DirecTV and FandangoNOW.Universal is hoping the test will help answer the question of how much consumers are willing to pay to watch a high-profile new movie in their homes.Theater owners have denounced Universal's decision to break the theatrical window, arguing that a film's home entertainment potential is based on a high-profile run in theaters that generally lasts three months -- but some Wall Street analysts aren't as quick to judge.Unlike box office grosses, home entertainment numbers for individual titles aren't disclosed.(hollywoodreporter.com)
ZitatNew study shows 70% of moviegoers would rather watch movies at homeThe battle between seeing films theatrically and the rise of PVOD, allowing moviegoers to watch films at home, has been front and center since the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered movie theaters nationwide. Studios, such as Universal and Warner Bros., have opted to release their new films straight to PVOD after their theatrical release dates were compromised and they have seen great success with the method. Universal's TROLLS WORLD TOUR has pulled in $100 million+ in revenue after breaking the opening weekend PVOD record and Warner Bros. has seen similar success with their animated reboot, SCOOB! Some have suspected this shows how eager the consumer is to watch films in the comfort of their own home while others believe this is happening because they don't have much of a choice. No matter where you may land on this, a new study was recently conducted that asked moviegoers about their viewing preference and if it's to be believed, home is where it's at.A new study from Performance Research and Full Circle Research, via "Variety", shows that cinemas may find it difficult to go back to business as it was pre the pandemic. With significant concern for personal health and safety, most movie fans appear to prefer to watch at home. When asked if they would rather see first-run films in a movie theater or as a digital rental at home, a staggering 70% of participants say they are more likely to watch at home versus only 13% who said they were likely to go to the theater. 17% of survey participants said they were not sure which they would choose.The troubling thing about these findings for movie theater chains is that not much has changed since a similar study conducted by Performance Research back in March. 52% of consumers feel that being in heavily attended spaces will "scare" them for a "long time" and this is up from the result of 47% first revealed in the March study when the acceleration of the health crisis was gripping the U.S.More results from the study show that 37% of the survey participants say they plan to attend movies in theaters less often (up from 28% in March) and 10% say they may never set foot in a movie theater again (up from 6% in March). Showing that we all need a bit of levity, the genre that would most likely get them back in movie theater seats would be a comedy (43%) followed by drama (35%) & action (33%). The state of the world is clearly scary enough so horror lagged behind with 19%.A lot of this also comes down to the price point. Most PVOD rentals, for these latest films that were intended for theatrical release, are priced at $19.99. Some have complained this is overpriced but if you're a family of five, for example, this is quite the deal to entertain the family at home while also maintaining safety. The price of admission at the movie theater is just as much and that's just for one ticket before more money is spent at the concession stand. The appeal of home viewing just becomes more and more appealing as time goes on.(Joblo.com)
