Changing tables

Paramount, one of the original “Big Five” studios in the US film industry, has to deal with the COVID-19 epidemic. Some studios have opted for digital releases, while others choose to delay the release of anticipated blockbusters.

Paramount now says it is reviewing the release of A Quiet Place: Part 2 from September 6, 2020, to April 23, 2021. It’s Top Gun: Maverick’s desirable Christmas release weekend from July 2 to 2021.

Other changes to the release schedule include:

  1. The new Jackass movie is postponed from July 2021 to September 3, 2021
  2. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 pushed to April 8, 2022
  3. Pushed to July 22, 2022, under the boardwalk
  4. Delaying the release of The Tiger’s Apprentice from February 11, 2022, to February 10, 2023

The value of the exhibition sector

The current state of public health has severely affected the theatre industry. But it also shows how much the audience loves going to the movies. “We truly believe that watching a movie is not as enjoyable as it used to be in theaters,” says Chris Aronson, Paramount’s head of domestic distribution.

For that reason, Hollywood is committed to releasing well-received films in theatres. Both of Paramount’s major titles are suitable for cinemas. One, the thrilling suspense of A Quiet Place: Part 2 deserves a professional, surround-sound system.

Meanwhile, Top Gun: Maverick begs to be seen on a big screen. Not releasing these films in theatres would be a slander both artistically and financially.

Mark Viane, head of Paramount’s international theatre distribution, says the decision is aimed at saving the movie theatre business. 

“Theater experience and our exhibition partners are committed to us,” Viane said. He stressed that Paramount was “hopeful” that film enthusiasts would come to the cinema once again to experience the “single joy” of movies.

While the epidemic has stopped production in many studios, on the other hand, it is good to know that we have some awesome theatrical releases waiting for us.
