Cineworld marks comeback with Warner Bros. deal

Regal Cinema is set to reopen next month and ahead of that, parent company Cineworld announced a deal with Warner Bros.

On how long movies will stay up on the big screen before being made available for streaming in 2022.

UPSOUND: “It’s Godzilla….” …Versus King Kong.

The epic monster mash-up is set to mark the reopening of Cinemark’s U.S. Regal theaters next month.

The world’s second largest theater chain inked a deal Tuesday with movie studio Warner Brothers to make sure that starting next year films like this will have 45 days on the big screen before they start streaming.

Warner Bros.

Already announced that all of its 2021 titles will be released simultaneously in theaters and on its streaming service HBO Max.

Before movie theater chains were forced to close due to the health crisis, they traditionally had a 90-day window before movies started streaming.

This deal could be another sign of how movie theaters and flourishing streaming platforms might co-exist in the new normal.

Cinemark signed a deal in November to allow Universal Pictures to offer its movies to U.S. homes after only 17 days on theater screens.

Both Cinemark and rival AMC are betting on big-budget releases such as Godzilla vs.

King Kong and the vaccine rollout to lure customers back to theaters.

Cinemark’s CEO says that with capacity limits rising to 50% or more across most U.S. states – that’s good enough for him to turn a profit.

HBO Max rolling out audio descriptions for select titles

American streaming service HBO Max is now rolling out a dedicated audio description category on the platform. Select titles on the streamer will have audio descriptions, which are separate tracks that describe what's visually happening on-screen. As per The Verge, the option is currently available on the website and mobile applications but not on TV apps. Audio descriptions are useful for people who are blind or visually impaired, as they provide context that is not obvious from only hearing dialogue and music. So far, the described shows and movies include 'Euphoria', 'His Dark Materials', 'Generation', 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', 'Dunkirk', and more. The new category in the streaming platform lists all of the currently described shows and movies in one place, though it doesn't yet show up on TV apps. There will also be improvements to the screen reader compatibility of the website and apps. The audio descriptions and other changes will "allow our community to share equally with family and friends in the truly universal pastime of viewing television and movies," said Dan Spoone, president of the American Council of the Blind, in a statement. For shows and movies that have audio descriptions available, the tracks can be turned on from within the caption settings at the bottom of the video player. The new feature follows a settlement between WarnerMedia and blind individuals and advocacy groups that was reached last October. The settlement called for at least 1,500 hours of described content on the streamer by the end of this March, increasing to at least 6,000 hours by the end of March 2023.
