Disney doesn’t want to be the first studio to release a major movie in the middle of a pandemic when the company doesn’t know how many people are going to show up. The delay is added to confirm that Disney and Warner Bros. are engaged in a chicken release game. No company needs to move first, checking their upcoming billion-dollar movies in a world where movies might lose their profits if audi did.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek originally listened to Tenet (referring to it while “a competitor ‘s film”) while Disney executives were waiting to watch; the insinuation was that if Tenet did well, Mulan could operate the next week, but if it sunk on the opening weekend, Disney might move Mulan. ViacomCBS CEO Bob Bakish stated in his company’s earnings call that he was hoping for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run was scheduled to release in early August, and theaters will be back in full swing. Since then, ViacomCBS has transferred The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on Run to a streaming release only in 2021.

As producers are scrambling to find out when to unleash the 2020 blockbusters, audiences are already monitoring closely. Companies like AMC Theatres and Regal focus on movies like Tenet and Mulan to get customers back to theaters. Plans to open more widely appeared to be based on Tenet’s release date of July 31st. – adapted from The Verge
