Last evening, I was An Audience of One at a showing of ‘Bloodshot’ in the coastal Florida suburb where I live.Sony didn’t preview it here. They know its a bit of a dog. A few families were showing up for “Onward” and “Sonic” showings. One family per theater. That’s de facto self-quarantining, I guess.
When will cinemas close down, simply because no one wants to risk being exposed to the Coronavirus? I don’t need corporate statements to verify this, as I have been in theaters three days this week. The major chains are losing their shirts over this incompetently handled pandemic.
Exhibitor Relations was saying maybe $7 million could be earned by “Bloodshot”– IF the cinemas stay open. That looks like a pipe dream. “The Hunt” won’t do any better.Will “take it on faith” churchgoers show up for “I Still Believe?”
So I guess we will all be watching streaming services and VOD releases to escape the dreary TV news. Even the liars at Fox have had to temper their lies. A bit. I guess I picked the wrong month to let my Netflix subscription lapse!https://deadline.com/2020/03/mulan-new-mutants-antlers-moved-coronavirus-1202881355/
