Very soon, we'll see if it is a cannibalization between theaters & streaming service or if the problem comes from word of mouth.

At this stage, in my opinion, the first explanation is more likely.

The film distributors are vocal on the issue.

Yeah, although it is their business model too. It does make sense to me though. BW was not bad at all or at least not bad enough to account for it.

I think alot of the big studios are trying things at the moment that are not going to last. It is the dance of getting what you can from theatrical release and then move it to streaming to see if you can get some more dollars there.

Doing it at the same time does not seem to boost streaming revenue to match what would be at a theatrical run. Like I said taking a number of people to the theater gets you the cost of all those tickets. Having a watch party on streaming gets you whatever the cost was for that month for the one person.

Seems Disney going forward is doing the theaterical model and looking to go to streaming a few months after that. Might be better than what they tried with BW.

But it is curious for the impact going forward with things. It often makes me wonder about the millions streaming services spend on content. As one would expect them to have a relatively constant revenue stream and at this point they are trying to pick off a smaller and smaller pool of people for diminishing returns.
