As some of you may know, Warner Bros. and AT&T pissed off a lot of people in Hollywood, when they announced that their entire 2021 slate of movies would premiere simultaneously on the same on HBO Max and theaters on each of their respective release dates in 2021. Legendary Studios, who made "Kong vs Godzilla", is now pissed off, and they're taking WB to court over this. There's a possible boycott on the horizon from the producers' guild, the actors' guild, and writers' guild. And you even have big name celebrities like Christopher Nolan, James Gunn and Dave Chapelle bashing Warner Bros. publicly over this move.
But now the theaters are going to respond to this situation. According to various Hollywood insiders, it's reported that all the major theater chains from AMC, Regal, Cinemark and etc might just decide to sell tickets to Warner Bros. movies for 3-5 dollars a ticket, which is well below what they would normally charge on a normal movie ticket, and then try to force Warner Bros. into accepting only a 20 percent cut of the profits off of those low ticket sales. Many insiders claim that this would be the theaters way of spiting Warner Bros. over their recent move to want to have their big movies premiere on HBO Max the same day as their theatrical domestic releases.
Personally, I think the theaters are making an idle threat that sounds like it'll hurt themselves more so than it'll hurt Warner Bros. honestly. However, I do agree with the media and most Hollywood insiders that the situation with the actors' guild, producers' guild, directors' guild and writers' guild could pose a major problem for Warner Bros if they don't get it resolved ASAP. But what are your thoughts on this? Please discuss.
Well let me put it to this way. While the theaters literally can't control anything right now, the rest of the Hollywood status quo does and this could determine not just the future of movies in general but whether or not Warner Bros will even survive as a film distribution studio because if there's a boycott against them then they better pray this gamble pays off or else they're fucked.
