" Warner Bros. made the surprising announcement Thursday that it will be releasing all of its 2021 movies on HBO Max the same day as each hits theaters. The films will be available at no extra cost to subscribers and will be on the streaming platform for only 31 days."
It looks like this makes it even more of an uphill battle to fill theaters. However, a twchnology of killing the SARS-2 virus qith UV light could change the picture.
Again, I know nothing really. The demand for aterilized surfaces and circulating air has to be immense. How can committees and groups ever meet unless this demand is met? Masks are not a foolproof method and social distancing is not feasible in small group settings. So, without a new technology in place, distribution without theaters appears to have the upper hand.
