40: State of the Cinematic Union Part 2 (Universal VS AMC, Taika Waititi Gets a Star Wars Movie)

We are firmly into the Cinematic desert we never thought we’d find ourselves in and there have been some adjustments in the landscape we’d like to discuss as a living record of our takes on these strange days. First we have to cover the battle of the industries. With Universal Studios recent Video On Demand rental of Trolls World Tour apparently doing as well as it has, it’s opened up a bit of a Pandora’s Box in the movie world. AMC theaters is pushing back with the promise to not show ANY Universal movies in their theaters once things open back up. Who needs who more in the landscape ahead is what’s on everyones’ minds going forward. Will AMC be able to survive by boycotting films like Jurassic World: Dominion or F9, the latest in the Fast and Furious series? Is this a huge overreaction that they’ll have to shamefully walk back the morning after? We’ll discuss all this and much more in the world of VOD going forward. We’ll also take a look at the latest Star Wars news regarding Taika Waititi joining the ranks as the newest director on board to helm a picture in the world after Skywalker. We’re both quite excited at this news and wanted to bring a little positivity to the forefront. You’ll get all this and more in part 2 of the State of the Cinematic Union on this episode of CINEMASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!!!
