The big-screen brawl that could reshape the movies

大银幕的斗法或重塑电影业

Source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/04/30/big-screen-brawl-that-could-reshape-movies/

背景:北美影院受疫情影响,自3月中旬开始歇业,许多电影不得不寻求网播发片。线上首播虽然是不得已之举,却出乎意料交出了优秀的成绩单。在后疫情时代,网播平台势必会以更迅速有力的势头打破传统的电影市场格局。以环`球影业为例,其《魔发精灵2》的成绩超出预期,追平了首部《魔发精灵》北美票房的分账收入,证明了付费点播的市场基础已经颇具规模。鉴于此,NBC环`球的首席执行官杰夫·希尔表示,即使影院重新开张,也会通过线上视频发布电影。针对这一言论,北美最·大影院连锁公司AMC强硬表示将封杀环`球影业的电影,AMC首席执行官兼总裁亚当·艾伦在给环`球影业董事长唐娜·兰利的公开信中表示,AMC将不再在美国、欧洲或中东的任何影院播放环`球影业的电影。AMC的怒怼是困兽之斗,还是有力反击,还需待时分晓。
