Incredibly emotive piece on the London news just now looking at independent cinemas in London, including some of my favourites like the Prince Charles and the Peckhamplex...which opened but has been forced to shut doors again due to low attendance.
Several in the report said they were relying on Bond to bring people back. Swines then cut to Bond rasping "if we don't do this...then there will be nothing left to save."
Oh, no...I was just slicing some onions earlier!
Anyway, they further locked down a massive swathe of Wales today. In 6 weeks...will there even be anything left to save?!
Oh man that's brilliant storytelling on the part of the news producers, that stings.
I should add I am increasingly of the mind that releasing in some territories, UK included, is bordering on gross negligence, unless there is a marked improvement in circumstances.
And I say that as someone who has been lucky enough to go to several advance press screenings, and gone to midnight first screenings for as long as I have lived where that was possible, and associate Bond with the big screen experience in a fundamental way.
Things are taking a turn for the worse in Holland too - at this moment, I would not feel very comfortable sitting in a movie theater. Not even to see the latest James Bond film.
Does anyone still think this will still be released in November?
Mark Steyn has announced the release for NTTD will be Spring 2021.
Ah good, we can close this thread now and start fresh with another one titled "Will April still be the release month?"
