    It's entirely possible, given all the legal wrangling, but at the same time, I'm not sure how except contractually that might be an issue -- arguably, wouldn't the audiences still see the placement but only from home?

    A more authentic explanation seems like they just believe Bond is a premier brand and so the theater experience is the way to go to protect that image. Of course, there may be additional legal considerations. But WW84 was designed to be a tentpole film, and it found its way to home screens (if to less than stellar box office).

    I‘m undoubtedly in the vast minority with this opinion but I don’t understand why a lot of people/fans are so adamant about the cinema and the „experience“ (what experience)?

    Sitting in an overcrowded room with a bunch of half-interested people that are constantly playing with their mobile phones, laughing out loud like a donkey, kicking your seat, get up all the time during the movie,...
    Plus, there’s no chance for a peepee-break and I can’t even watch it in native tongue...

    So I actually wouldn’t mind seeing it at home. And when you have a proper setup, a cinema becomes obsolete really...
    The name is Walker by the way.

    I gotta say there's an element of nostalgia and ritual for me. Other people may be annoying, and I may miss an important scene because I gotta pee, but thats still all part of the ritual of seeing a new film properly. And sometimes the annoying other people will cheer or laugh at the right bits, and that adds to the experience.

    Whereas watching a dvd at my own pace, pausing to get another beer or rinse out the popcorn bowl, often watching it in two halves over two nights, that just seems more appropriate for studying older films from the archives, something I may have already seen a few times. So I can stop and rewind to better appreciate a detail that I've read about but never really noticed before.

    But I think most films are not intended to be first viewed that way: the suspense and shocks and reveals are meant to be work as part of an unbroken two hour experience. That intention is lost when you can pause and rewind and overanalyse the mechanics of the filmmaking before the story's even done.
