Home Media Release Date?

When do you think it will be released on DVD/streaming?

I feel like releases these days are three or four months after the cinema release.

    I'll be happy when it gets a cinema release. But these days the DVD and streaming releases come sooner and sooner. It may be available two months or so after it's released on the big screen!

    Given it's still scheduled for cinema releases in some territories well over a month after the UK I guess they'd have to weigh those territories import vs streaming, piracy etc.

    That would definitely be something to take into consideration. In the overall scheme of things, with cinema attendance down, once NTTD has had its run in cinemas, I would think that availability on home streaming and Blu Ray might come a bit sooner than previously for a Bond film. The other question that remains is who EON partners with for the Blu Ray release as their contract for home physical media release with 20th Century Fox has expired. Who EON and MGM/Amazon partners with for home physical media release has bigger ramifications beyond NTTD when it comes to the highly anticipated release of all the pre-Craig Bond films remastered in 4K HDR on 4K Blu Ray.

    I don't think anything has been announced yet for physical copies/streaming. The business model of late seems to be:

    Scenario 1 (BLACK WIDOW or most WB films, for example)

    • Theatrical release: Day X
    • Streaming release on exclusive platform: Day X (no upcharge or possible premium upcharge)
    • Streaming release on other platforms: Day X+60
    • Physical release: Day X+90

    Scenario 2 (A QUIET PLACE PART 2, for example)

    • Theatrical release: Day X
    • Streaming release on exclusive platform: Day X+45
    • Streaming release on other platforms: Day X+90
    • Physical release: Day X+90


    I think the success of SHANG-CHI will change things for some of the bigger films coming out as they hope to recoup their investments via theatrical vs streaming.

    that's estimated. It's probably pretty close, considering the models that I outlined above.

    Would love for the DVD release to be in-time for Christmas, but think January is much more likely.

    Having said that, how many copies would they sell as Christmas presents?! Especially as quite a number of people that would usually go to the cinema to watch upon its release, won't this time around. It would be in quite a few stockings I imagine.
