BlackWidow, according to TorrentFreak, has been the No. 1 pirated movie since its opening on July 9
Black Widowwill be lucky to make $350M at the worldwide box office, a far cry from the $700M that Universal’s traditional theatrical-windowed global releaseF9is set to do. Marvel movies have had a streak of clearing $1 billion at the global box office in recent years.
Disney announced further crushing of windows this week, withBlack Widowgetting a 33-day theatrical window (with Disney+ Premier) before the pic’s August 10 arrival digital platforms, followed by a DVD and Blu-Ray release on September 14 and the Johansson title being completely available for free to Disney+ subscribers on October 6. This is a different window practice from Warner Bros, which has its new movies
in theaters and on HBO Max for the first 30-something days, then exclusive to theaters for another month before any ancillary home windows occur.Meanwhile, exhibition hasn’t gotten a discount on rental terms on Disney’s day-and-date releases, many theater owners tell us. This compared to Warner Bros, which I’m told has been generous on terms with theaters given its pandemic-era simultaneous theatrical HBO Max release plan, whereby its streaming subscribers get access to current theatrical movies for free. headtopics.com
Still TBD is whether Disney continues this same day theatrical/Disney+ Premier strategy. The rest of its upcoming theatrical slate, which includes 20th Century Studios’Free Guy Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, is expected to debut in an exclusive theatrical window.
Disney will argue that the global pandemic and lopsided offshore markets forced it to releaseBlack Widow and Jungle Cruiseon Disney+ and theaters and that it’s not giving the movie away for free in homes like HBO Max is with its movies. NATO asserts that this practice simply moved PVOD money up slightly but will damage all downstream monies on
Black Widow going forward.‘Jungle Cruise’ Review: Dwayne Johnson & Emily Blunt Are E-Ticket Teaming In Special Effects-Heavy Movie Based On Disneyland RideDisneyMeanwhile, we hear that the Johnson and Seven Bucks camp don’t plan a similar attack on Disney like Johansson as they stood alongside the studio in the dynamic window plant for
Jungle Cruise to get it before as many people as they could during Covid. Johnson even announced the theatrical-Disney+ Premier release on his social media channels about Jungle Cruise. Big exhibition bosses like Imax’s Rich Gelfond,who spoke during his company’s 2Q earnings call, are hopeful that this whole dynamic window tentpole plan for Disney is temporary moving forward. Knock on wood. headtopics.com
In the end, we could have seen that the writing was on the wall for Disney and Johansson’s Black Widow During the pic’s release, the twice-Oscar-nominated actress toldFatherly: “I have no plans to return as Natasha. I feel really satisfied with this film. It feels like a great way to go out for this chapter of my Marvel identity. I would love to be able to continue to collaborate with Marvel in other ways because I think there’s just an incredible wealth of stories there.”

To be honest you put it on any streaming platform, it is pirated easily, simple as that, you release in the cinema only then it isn't pirated I pirated the movie. And honestly, this movie wasn’t even worth pirating. It’s 2 hours I’ll never get back Sorry scarjo and my love florence. In my country, cinema still close till next year. We don’t have access to disney+ . So yeah — I pirated the movie, loved it(not obsessed but loved it) …
I knew this was going to happen because it’s a bad idea of putting it on Disney+. They should waited like a year after it theaters release. Warner Bros need to do the same That's why movies should release Only In Theaters mnguni_phoenix look what you did They put it on streaming services, what did you expect to happen
I predict and or suggest a settlement ASAP to reduce backlash. pirating is still such an issue because you need at least 3 steaming services to get a chance at being able to watch the movies and shows you want. Also, sometimes when you do pay for a service, they still give you ads. lol what. streaming use to be so good
Not surprised the didn’t even release the movie in many countries and no one likes to be spoiled Not surprising. From the moment it's on an official streaming platform it's an open door for pirates
Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney over 'Black Widow' Disney+ releaseActress Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney , saying the premiere of the highly anticipated superhero film ' Black Widow ' on streaming service Disney + breached her contract Well I saw it in the theater and enjoyed it. 'Box office' is the same as Disney premium. She needs to get the fuck over herself she's not the great of an actress and was one of the worst Marvel characters ever. Why does everything in america nad europe gat to be sued. No peace amendment other than suing? A man coughs and we sue, a woman comes back late,we sue. Someone offends another, we sue.
This needs context. Remember Scarlett has representative and various professionals working for her, that specific clause is there to ensure that they as well as her are remunerated. Obviously the pandemic hasn’t helped. But if the contract was breached, it is what it is. I said so. It was a blunder not releasing it in india
tbh I pirated because I don't have much money to pat for it I wonder why when the buy in at home is 30 dollars Pretty sure snake eyes and space jams weren’t even close, such a pointless info🤦🏾♂️ This shows why movie didn't do as expected j mean why tf you have release on day 1 on streaming sites like why at least waited for 1 week
what do you expect!? most theaters still close Most of the theatres in Africa are closed indefinitely due to corrupt governments and poor planning. We would have seen this in 3D And that is why you don’t charge $30 on top of The nine dollars you’re charging for a streaming service.
