The year 2020 has been very hard for the film industry, but all the premieres that Marvel Studios prepares could save 2021, at least that is what Tom Hanks thinks.
As in 2020 many of the premieres have been delayed, now great films have accumulated for the year 2021. For example, Marvel Studios will release Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and the legend of the ten rings, The Eternals, and Spider-Man 3. Interesting enough movies to get people to go back to the movies and Tom Hanks believes that will save the industry.
Although a lot will have to change things, since for example Wonder Woman 1984 has only raised 17 million dollars in the United States, but in the rest of the world it has achieved 68 million for a total of 85 million. Although Marvel Studios can always do better, it does not seem that it will reach the levels of 2019. Especially for smaller films, since for example this weekend News from the big world, starring Tom Hanks and directed by Paul Greengrass, also premiered, which only made 2 million dollars.
Will the industry change to survive?
Tom Hanks explained that: “A radical change was expected. Will movie theaters continue to exist? They absolutely will. In a way, I believe that exhibitors, once they are 100% open, will have the freedom to choose which films to screen. Big event movies will rule the day in theaters. ‘Big World News’ could be the last grown-up movie about people saying cool things that will be shown on a big screen somewhere, because after this, to ensure that people come back, we will have the Marvel Universe and that. type of franchises ”.
Many people like Tom Hanks believe that the cinema will be filled with great movies from Marvel Studios, Star Wars, and the like. While the rest of the medium and small films should go directly to streaming services such as Netflix, HBO, Amazon, or Disney +.
