Wednesday, week #10 of 2021 (3/5 – 3/7/2021): three movies.
Say that again with some emphasis: three movies!
That’s how many are opening in theaters this weekend. What has largely been a case of one here, one there, we’re finally getting more several movies screening.
Given one of them is also showing on Disney+ as part of their Disney+ Premium experience (see: ), but this probably won’t that much impact on theaters. We saw this last weekend with Tom & Jerry. People will go to the theaters even if they can still watch it at home. Have always thought that the whole day and date ruins box office receipts is overstated. You can’t get the theater experience (easily) at home. Yes, it can be done, if you have your own home theater room, but watching movies on your TV screen — even a large one — isn’t the same as watching in theaters.
Raya and the Last Dragon
We won’t be paying the premium $30 fee to watch this on Disney+, no more than we did for Mulan.
This has been getting a lot of preview love in theaters. Basketball sports story of a talented Asian player who is being racially stereotyped.
Maybe it’s from seeing the previews so many times, but I’m interested. The last basketball-related movie we saw was the one with Ben Affleck as an alcoholic coach of a young basketball team. This seems to center more specifically on one player.
Wherever you are watching movies this weekend, happy watching to you!
