Well folks it's gut check time, and as I've said in previous threads alluding to this topic like "Will the Coronavirus put movie theaters out of business" to "NATO threatens Universal Studios over Trolls 2", it seems Universal Studios has decided to forgo a theatrical release for "Trolls World Tour" in light of the coronavirus situation, and they'll instead be releasing it on VOD instead, even at the dismay of NATO, who is still mighty pissed at them for doing this.
I'm not going to delve too much about the situation in detail, as I've already talked about them before, but I'll leave links to the other threads that discussed this more in detail.
As I said before, I don't think movie theaters will be obsolete anytime soon because of online piracy will always prevent that from happening, and always ensure movies can make more money premiering in theaters vs being released directly on VOD and streaming. However, I also said that whatever happens with 'Trolls 2" will determine a lot of things, and that if it's profitable in any way, then don't be surprised if the rest of Hollywood follows suit because studios are losing money every single day this coronavirus situation drags on. Heck, Disney had to take out a loan up to 6 billion dollars after having to be closed down for a mere TWO WEEKS! Imagine how much more they'll owe if this keeps going, so I can imagine if Trolls 2 becomes successful then it could be a game changer at least in the short term. But what are your thoughts? Do you think "Trolls World Tour" is going to change the landscape of movies as we know it? Or do you think this is all much ado about nothing, and things will return to the status quo regardless how well Trolls 2 does? Please discuss?
Also here's the links to the previous threads for those that wish to know more about the situation.

Before anyone comments, I would like to address that this is NOT the same NATO that you're probably thinking of. No, there's actually a different NATO that isn't part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Nope, this NATO represents the National Association of Theatre Owners. ...
