With a growing list of items that includes the cancellation of SXSW 2020, MGM pushing No Time To Die to November, and now Onward‘s lackluster first-place finish this weekend at the box office, the effects of the coronavirus are beginning to impact the film industry in a very clear way. For Pixar, Onward‘s $40 million gross is one of their lowest opening weekends ever, on pace with The Good Dinosaur‘s first weekend back in 2015.
What are the short and long-term effects of the coronavirus on the film industry? We discuss this and much more on this week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast.
