Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

So shocking, especially when we didn't know he was sick. So young too.

I wonder what they'll do about BP2. Presumably Shuri will take over and they'll have to re-do what they have.

Principal photography for BP2 hasn’t started yet. AFAIK they weren’t going to begin until next year. At this stage they can either re-cast or rewrite. Re-casting is simpler but given the ground breaking nature of that part of the MCU it might not be appropriate. Rewriting takes advantage of the fact that the Black Panther is always whoever the king of Wakanda is, and not just one person like Bruce Wayne or Clark Kent. Handling the death of T’Challa without Chadwick Boseman to play him does however throw up its own sensitivities. I don’t know what they’ll do, but the Marvel production team is phenomenally good at what they do and I think whatever they come up with will be suitably honouring to Boseman and his legacy within the MCU.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

yeah. I am hoping they have got a tonne of footage they haven't previously used and will be able to do something, even if it is completely fake and CG, to have him in the next film briefly and facilitate the transition to a different character.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

Well it's been subject to a number of production delays that were chalked up to Marvel adjusting it's releasing schedule for the new phase of films. Maybe that wasn't the reason....

I highly suspect that they knew he had cancer. It's almost a certainty they knew as he would have various medical and insurance checks for the role and it would have been hard to keep his treatment secret during the filming of Black Panther and Avengers.

So they probably already do have an outline of what they intend to do.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

I think all of you know Mulan will be released tomorrow for £19.99 on Disney+.

For those who don't want to pay Disney plan on making it free in December.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

I am really looking forward to Mulan, I wish they had done a simultaneous dual release for VoD and cinema because I would have gone to the cinema to see it.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

I know most people who want Disney+ will have got it by now but releasing Mulan for free on the normal service would have surely garnered a few more subscribers from those who were wavering.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

They will be losing a lot of money by skipping the theatrical release so I guess charging 19.99 will earn them a lot of money instead.

A few more subscribers wouldn’t get close to recouping the $200 million reportedly spent on it. Disney has been appallingly bad at putting newly commissioned tv shows on + so far (Mando is a notable exception), so there’s absolutely no way they’re about to start throwing their would-be theatrical releases at it. And frankly, nor should they. Everyone is always so quick to argue the studios should give out free stuff, but there seems to be precious little comprehension of the economics at play here. The only reason a studio spends that kind of money (thus securing the expertise and resources to make it look really, really good) is because a good cinema run can earn it back and then make a profit.

I also want theatres to maintain their exclusivity window. Much prefer seeing films in a cinema.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

It is well worth £20, it is a cracking film. I would have paid more than that had I gone to the cinema and paid for parking and sweets and popcorn etc.
