Theatrical film distribution has taken another serious blow. The launch of Paramount+ has brought the news that Paramount Pictures is going to shrink its theatrical release window from the current 90 days to 45 days for its big budget movies
Mission: Impossible 7, A Quiet Place Part II, Creed III and Ridley Scott’s House Of Gucci are among the films which will hit the streaming service a mere 45 days after their cinematic releases. Box office be damned – this is about about membership to the streaming service. At least these movies are getting some wort of big screen release.
Will the cinematic experience survive in the post-COVID-19 world?
