Projectors are looking like a good investment for the future of both the Alien and Predator franchises, and are dirt cheap these days.

The Predator underperformed last the franchise was in theaters. Risks would be taken given the pandemic and while things have been going back to normal, that's still a considerable risk despite even Disney's own success during this.

Going right to streaming is less financial risk. It also gets the film in everyone's hands the minute it comes out. So long as you have Hulu, you can watch it. So even if Covid shuts things down again, you don't have to worry about butts in the seats when said seats are in the customers own home.
Yet they put the recent Doctor Strange film in theaters? Something about it doesn't sit right with me. Wished they did it both ways so that if there is no future shutdown, people can go see in in theaters and have the choice of seeing it at home. Wanna experience this in a theater honestly, but hey, ordering pizza with 20 hot wings and a coke on the side is way better then expensive ass popcorn and soda at least right?  :laugh:


Dr Strange is going to make almost a billion dollars because it's a PG 13 Marvel movie. This is an R rated entry in a franchise that's never been considered a huge money maker in perhaps the worst cinema attendance drought in history. Seems pretty clear.

Haven't played it.

How about Space Wolf?
Haven't played that either, I was never a big Space Wolves fan.

Good teaser, the sound design is on point. I love that Amber feels like a huge underdog compared to the hard ass protagonists of the other four films.

Dr. Strange 2 was a lot less riskier. They knew that would fill seats regardless of whether it was actually good or not.

The studio (formerly fox), has decided to go with the straight-to-streaming model because it allows them to put out more content more quickly, and take some risks with that content that they wouldn't otherwise be able to take with a mainstream theatrical release. For example, a predator movie set in the past focused around a Native American character. I applaud them for taking this approach and I'm genuinely excited for this film.
