  • I'm Roxy's dryer alongside a spongy.

  • You don't know what just came over me.

  • It's all right if spending gee sometimes band also a and you're very Don Pardo.

  • Thank you.

  • Very good, Don Pardo.

  • It was very intentional.

  • Yeah.

  • How did you know?

  • I'm just trying to get on your level down with the impressions.

  • I hear that I'm the worst of everybody here.

  • Eso we're going for Nate Dog.

  • And I think you ended up with Don Partner.

  • So what you do a solid Don Pardo impression and that's all that matters.

  • That's what people say about my Yoda that I'm going for Yoda.

  • But it's really stick good stitch.

  • So just say you're doing stitching.

  • People will be impressed, but but that's not what it sounds like in the head of Roxy Strier.

  • We have a lot to go over today, guys, including the fact that the most important news of the day that is Catherine O'Hara Day.

  • So we will definitely be, uh, thing respected and loved her because we're all big fans.

  • Also, she's fine.

  • It's just cultural hair appreciation.

  • Yes.

  • Did I make it sound like something that happened.

  • Well, I just know that people jump to conclusion.

  • That's true when somebody's trending on Twitter and everybody's like, Oh, no, yeah, What's happened?

  • You know, she's good.

  • It's just a birthday.

  • So also known as her day, eh?

  • So we'll be talking about her.

  • Also, the Corona virus is affecting the entertainment industry alongside, Ah, lot of different things.

  • But we are in entertainment news show.

  • So we'll be talking about the James Bond delays and other things that are being affected by the virus.

  • And this morning, Matt Reeves dropped pictures of Nana and on and on about Man.

  • It was almost that would be amazing.

  • One episode in the mind of Yeah, like a movie.

  • Yeah, more limited.

  • Siri's worse.

  • Alfred.

  • I'm part of the car now, Master Wayne.

  • Actually, I just wantto, writer writes itself, Yeah, just steal lines tonight, right?

  • Nobody notices.

  • We could do it.

  • All right, let's get into this Guy's James Bond was delayed.

  • The release is now going to be in November, so that was being pushed back from April to November.

  • This is no time to die, and this is the first Hollywood tent pole to shift its global roll out because of the Corona virus outbreak.

  • Were you guys initially surprised when you heard this air?

  • You surprised it's taken this long for other films, too?

  • Move their release date.

  • Do you think this will be the first of many?

  • Dan What?

  • Your thoughts?

  • Well, I mean, it's not the first film title moved truly state because they've been canceled in China.

  • But the idea of like moving an entire roll out, um, I was not necessarily surprised.

  • I guess it's more like the questions like this is sort of the the The button like this is like the the break glass in case of emergency Thing of just like to do this.

  • This requires so much gear shifting and stopping things down.

  • I think it just underscores the escalation of how this is affecting the entertainment industry because this is massive.

  • This is a worldwide global roll out that we were about a month away from, and the amount of logistics that you have to completely grind to a halt to do that on, and we'll talk about how it could affect other other films.

  • I'm sure in a bit.

  • But, um, I wasn't shocked, but I think it again.

  • Just that I don't think there's gonna be the last time we've been asking about moving on, and we've been asking about Black Widow and these big tent pole films.

  • And part of it, I think, has been people that sort of waiting to see how this progresses.

  • But instead of de escalating, it seems to be escalating.

  • We had we had a public health emergency declared right here in L.

  • A County this morning.

  • Um, it's not getting better.

  • And so there is a financial reality that you have to face.

  • And the fact of the matter is, this is a multi $100 million enterprise that the studios are embarking upon that they can't necessarily risk taking a huge loss on because they put it out in theaters at a time when theater's air, not full people, aren't going to the movies, right.

  • It's interesting.

  • The April 2 November so November 12th is one.

  • It's coming in the UK, followed by US and November 25th spending.

  • How do you think that they picked those dates when they're globally shifting?

  • Do you think that's just them, hoping that they're giving themselves enough time for it to be better.

  • I mean, how do you then go about making a decision like that?

  • It's got to be a hope and a prayer.

  • I mean, I wonder how much they're in touch with, or or in coordination with the theater chains, because I feel like it's it's almost on them before it's on any of the movie studios to be like, Okay, we're shutting down or we're We're planning on closing our doors until, you know, this blows over or something like that.

  • So did they pick it out of a hat?

  • I don't know.

  • Maybe that maybe there was an open weekend or because they always have, you know, 1st 2nd 3rd choices for when a movie's gonna come out based on what else is gonna be in theaters around then I haven't looked ahead to what it will be up against now.

  • Do you know, Dan?

  • I do, actually, um, here in the U.

  • S.

  • On November 20th.

  • Currently, Godzilla versus Kong is supposed to open.

  • Now you have a James Bond movie coming in five days after that.

  • I don't know how the IMAX contracts worked in the sense of you know there's only a limited number of IMAX screens.

  • A lot of times I'm Max will enter into a week or so agreement with the movie to play.

  • That's the IMAX release.

  • Sometimes that does.

  • That's not how it works.

  • But I think the first domino you're going to see Drop is with Warner Brothers number one.

  • They have a new ah movie, coming out a month later in Dune on December 18th which is a huge financial gamble for them.

  • Number two Godzilla, King of the Monsters, did not deliver to the extent that they wished on.

  • Now, with James Bond moving in on November 25th in North America, which would be five days after it opens here as well, I think it's very likely that you're going to see Godzilla versus Kong move off of its November 20th date.

  • It's not gonna move into December.

  • I don't think because W B has doomed their and they're not gonna want to compete with themselves there.

  • Don't think January, I don't think so.

  • Move in January.

  • Just a baby has Mortal Kombat in January and again they don't commit with themselves, and then in February, you've got currently Shinkichi coming out.

  • I think it's very likely that we're going to see Godzilla versus Kong move from November 20th to March, which also, by the way, gives it more time to for them to render toe work on it and to render because, um, following God's looking the monsters.

  • This is not a huge financial success for them.

  • I don't think they're gonna want to risk another big hit, especially if Doon goes the way the Blade Runner, 2049 did.

  • Where it's an ambitious film from Dylan Dinny Villeneuve that scifi that audiences, you know that See it love and critics love.

  • But that doesn't find a huge release.

  • I don't think they can take two huge financial blows like that back to back, so I think that's gonna be the next domino to fall.

  • Whether that's this week, whether it's in a couple of months, I think we're going to see Godzilla versus calling off that date and going.

  • But again, I think the first, like Domino to fall quote unquote could be if this stretches on what movie theater chain can stomach going out of being shuttered for months.

  • Amount of the small ones camp Yeah, the ones like diversity here in Los Angeles.

  • Can't.

  • I just don't I can't believe they're in a financial position.

  • Tau weather being closed or your 100 things like this.

  • That's a good question.

  • I don't know if there's a force majeure clause, probably in some place for some, but I don't know, So I hope so.

  • Because yeah, you're you're right.

  • Thinking about the movie theaters.

  • There will be a negative effect there, for sure.

  • And then also thinking about these movies.

  • Do you guys think that James Bond is going to be negatively affected if Corona virus is cleared up or better, or what have you by November?

  • And this movie does come out in November as they are slating.

  • Do you think that it will be affected poorly by not having its initial April released like they plant?

  • I don't think so.

  • Because the end of the year is often traditionally where James Bond movies come out.

  • Yeah, I thought it was like a fall winter.

  • Yeah, franchise.

  • So I don't I don't think, you know, as long as as the crisis or at least the contagion.

  • A portion of the crisis has passed that point and There's no concern about people actually feeling safe going to the theater.

  • Uh, there's enough lead time where?

  • I don't think that it could necessarily affected negatively unless it's facing a lot of competition.

  • If Godzilla versus Kong doesn't move, you're gonna have the eternal still kicking around the marketplace.

  • As of right now, um, you know, that's where I think you could see a negative impact.

  • What do you guys think about the domino effect of this?

  • Do you believe that there are this week even that other movies or franchises will take the the same route if the crisis escalates here in the United States as it is currently?

  • I don't see how Disney can really smooth lawn in three weeks.

  • They're already they've already probably lost the Chinese market place.

  • For now.

  • I don't know how they can release it.

  • Um, even the theater's air open if it's if it's continued to escalate, I don't think I don't see how they get dressed.

  • Yeah, I think everyone needs to just kind of wait and see.

  • Nobody knows how this is gonna play out how severe it's going to get.

  • And I you know, they I guess they always have in their back pocket.

  • Like, uh, I was at the interview where they got pulled from theaters.

  • I just kind of posted online for five bucks a pop like and they'd still lost a ton of money, even even with, like, a lot of online sales.

  • So that's like a desperation move.

  • I think I think that they have to, uh, the studios can stomach shelving a movie for three months.

  • I don't think movie theaters can shut down for three months, and but otherwise we just have to just have to hold our breath being a Milan, I did think it was interesting.

  • I got the press release invite the press screening invite last night, and I was like, Huh, I thought that they were going thio, um, wait on that because it seems like if they're sending that out that their plan is to move ahead with their date unless they're doing Ah, unless they're just doing this because they don't know when they want to have people mark their critics mark their calendar for it.

  • Now I think you have to move ahead as if it's happening, because if you all of a sudden stop but don't take action than the inaction in itself causes people to start questioning what's going on.

  • So I think if Disney's not moving ahead as if they're releasing new one, and who knows in three weeks, you know, depending on how the reaction is here in the United States, if cases have begun to stop, you know, popping up.

  • If people feel like they feel safe going out into public places, then you don't want to take that action unnecessarily.

  • But it is.

  • It evolves every day, every day.

  • The situation changes, so you know, you just have to do the best that you can as you're planning ahead, you know, and it's a business and it's a business decision, and you have to defer to the human factor in any business decision.

  • In my opinion, I don't think that you want to take something that's gonna put people's lives in danger.

  • Even being here, What do you guys?

  • Is this having any effect on your guy's ability or or decision making and going to the movies?

  • Or I know that some people have been saying that they're not going to Disneyland or they're not going to malls are you guys cutting back on the amount of public places that you're going since everything has happened with Corona virus?

  • Not really.

  • Not yet.
