    I think that's a bit extreme, but July is definitely too soon.
    This better be one damn good movie! They're even moving WW 84 up if it doesn't do well.

    I don't think we are getting any moves untill 2021 or 2022 it's just to much money to risk it's a 200 million dollar movie no way it can make that in the pandemic.

    I've been an avid movie-goer pretty much my whole life. But I've realized over the last two months that I don't miss going to the movies like I thought I would. But I know people are biting at the chomps to get back to normal so I expect the first big summer movie to open will do extremely well regardless if it might be too soon.

    Putting all your hope behind one movie is incredibly dumb.

    This is quite a risky move. Even if theaters reopen and critics say Tenet is the greatest movie since Citizen Kane, that won't be enough to bring skittish people back to multiplexes when they're still worried about the virus, especially if there's no vaccine. I suspect this is going to blow up in the faces of the suits at Warner Bros.

    Yup. Not going to a theatre until vaccine. The rest of my life will put me at enough risk of exposure, thanks!

    I love Nolan, and his movies are always a theatre experience for me, but hard pass on this.

    And everyone should still be worried about the virus. It's NOT gone. We've stayed away from each other, which has limited exposure.

    Just release it on streaming. It's not safe to be going to cinemas and putting people at risk.

    This. I for one refuse to go to the theaters if they open before I can get a vaccine. I don't care what the movie is, it isn't worth me risking Corona to see it.

    I think it depends where you are in the country or world.

    If you're in an area that has had limited impact from the virus anyway, then once the stay-at-home is rescinded in your area, you'll probably go to the movies and want to get back to normal as soon as possible. Not the very next day, but if the "all clear" is given and nothing happens in your area for 2 weeks or so, I'm sure people would flock to the movies again.

    In areas that are hard hit like New York, it'll take longer, but quite frankly, I live in NYC and the park in my neighborhood was chock full of people this weekend -- and quite a few didn't even bother wearing masks. People weren't super-congested together, but I was still surprised. I think now that Spring has sprung in NYC (March and April were still too cold/rainy), people are really reluctant to stay indoors like they were even a few weeks ago.

    I recall the mean age for death in bc was loke 87

    40 and under has very low chance of death.

    Ive worked full time, taken bus, been to public places and open stores...

    Once restaurants and theatres open Ill be going out...

    Not to say the measures taken arent valid and have saved lives...

    But the common flu kills 500000 annually

    Obesity kills near 3 million annually

    Shit 300000 pedestrians die annually...

    Stairs kill hundreds of thousands

    Automotive accidents kill droves

    Statistically as more are exposed and more are reveal asymptomatic or mild cases the more we will understand how dangerous covid is...

    It is dangerous

    But loads of hype and media hysteria as well...

    2008 swine flu mostly killed young people... minimal reaction from government s

    Covid mostly kills 60 and up. Mostly 80 somethings

    Also flu vaccine isnt even a guarantee...

    Neither will a covid vaccine be a guarantee


    Quote from worldometers.info

    When analyzing the breakdown of deaths by age and condition [source], we can observe how, out of 15,230 confirmed deaths in New York City up to May 12, only 690 (4.5% of all deaths) occurred in patients under the age of 65 who did not have an underlying medical condition (or for which it is unknown whether they had or did not have an underlying condition).

    Underlying illnesses include Diabetes, Lung Disease, Cancer, Immunodeficiency, Heart Disease, Hypertension, Asthma, Kidney Disease, GI/Liver Disease, and Obesity [source]

    Nolan will sit on this movie if it cannot go to the theaters.

    Of all the causes of death you mention, only one is infectious. Flu. If flu kills 500000 annually, then we're talking an entirely different scale with covid, which has killed over twice that many in one quarter of the time, and that's with desperate measures to stop the spread unlike anything we've done with the flu.

    Oh, and swine flu was declared a national health emergency within two weeks of its discovery.

    Hard to believe that would be his decision to make.
