The new James Bond film is finished but delayed due to coronavirus. Is that a social decision or a commercial decision that potential box office revenues would be negatively impacted?

^ I suspect it's a commercial decision. Various other movies have been delayed, too, and in many cases this happened a few weeks ago, before the more serious social distancing rules were introduced (depending upon where people are located, of course).

I walked past my local multiplex cinema yesterday and it was deserted - the doors were half shut, there was no-one at the ticket desk, and I couldn't see anyone walking around the foyer area.

I was rather looking forward to seeing Mulan and Black Widow, but we'll just have to wait.

The current celebrity culture and entertainment industries are going to get swept away by this. It will be like The Jazz Singer, all the old stuff from that world will be too old fashioned for mass consumption.

That's a serious licensed ripoff on the swimming trunk front!

I like the idea of the shirts, but T&A still do some of the original shirts and occasionally some of the short sleeved ones for the summer. And for not much more cost wise.

indeed. I totally see you strolling the hague looking all james bond in some short sleeved t&a

OB has been doing this for years, nothing new. I have a pair of the Thunderball ones I got on sale a few years back.

By the time this sucker comes out, it will be out dated.

Clips I've seen look heavy on the CGI. That's like Dynamation, it just isn't believable anymore.

They're too greedy to stream it for 16-24 Euros knowing full well the whole family is watching it. In these times, it would be gracious to go straight to streaming. To give a little of bit joy in the darkness of endless lockdowns.

And guess what, it will be delayed a fourth time.
