Two-thirds of home theaters are closed right now in so many parts of the world because of the COVID pandemic and the strict lockdown which was imposed all over the world. Places like malls, markets , theatres and gyms were also shut down and were not under operation since a year now. But now a few new, low-budget movies that are out of fashion are unlikely to demand adequate supply of space to support financial opening.
This year will be different. Or at least, it would have been better, because the U.S. box office has been paralyzed by a pandemic-driven theater, customer fears and a shortage of new films.
It’s already started all over again. Critics and studios expect the best films of the weekend to be released in recent weeks, including “Wonder Woman 1984” and “The Croods: A New Age.” Two-thirds of home theaters are closed, and a few new, low-budget movies that are out of fashion are unlikely to demand adequate supply of space to support financial opening.

Heavy movies can even enjoy the breeze, as the lag behind the much-anticipated movies for movie lovers who have missed the smell of popcorn in movie-theater and big screen scenes.

Movies from some of the major studios are expected to continue producing ticket sales, it is too late. Universal Pictures’ “Croods: The New Age,” released on November 25, could generate more than $ 2 million in domestic revenue for box office offices this weekend, followed by another film from Comcast Corp’s studio, “World News.”
There are indications that when the business resumes, the demand for new films could repair some of the damage by 2020, when box-office receipts fell by 80% compared to the previous year. In Asia, theaters are very open and set records. In addition, Hollywood studios are planning to release a flood of delayed major films, from James Bond’s new installment to the long-awaited Marvel Comics movie “The Black Widow.”
Dergarabedian also said that they are looking at 2021 and that literally uploaded to popular movies. They just have to hopes that the theaters are available and that the audience will show up for the shows and the movies back again.
