Universal Pictures Strikes Historic Deal with Movie Theaters, Which Could Change Release Dates Forever

Universal Pictures has reached a historic deal with movie theaters that will change the way movies are released in the future.

The studio already had a deal in place with AMC Theatres that allows it to premiere movies on premium video on-demand within three weeks of their theatrical releases. The deal only allows movies to be released at premium prices of around $20 and the studio would still need to wait three months after the theatrical release to lower rental prices to the $3 to $6 range.

Now, Universal has struck a deal with Cinemark.

The new deal states that any movie that opens with at least $50 million in opening weekend ticket sales has to stay exclusively in theaters for at least 31 days, which covers the first five weekends.

Any movies that earn less than $50 million on the opening weekend can be released on premium video on demand after just 17 days in theaters. The blockbuster movies will be released on PVOD after that 31 day mark.

Variety‘s sources say the “new terms will also extend to AMC.”

Here's How Lifetime Pulled Off Kissing Scenes in Their Christmas Movies During COVID

We’re officially in the season of Lifetime and Hallmark holiday movies, with almost every weekend leading up to the big day full of heartfelt, adorable, and cheesy romance movies about the holiday.

Most viewers who always look forward to these movies for the season were a little afraid the networks weren’t going to be able to pull it off with not only production, but also how their actors were supposed to seal their romance with a kiss during a pandemic.

In a new series of interviews with TheWrap, Lifetime‘s Amy Winter, the head of programming at the network revealed that they figured out a way to be safe and still have those important kissing scenes in the movies.

“Everybody was incredibly concerned about, as we were figuring it out, making sure that we were following the best possible guidelines to keep people safe,” she shared. “We all sat down, even before we got started, saying, how is anybody even going to kiss in these movies, given the circumstances?”

Amy added that the “greatest, oddest solution I’ve seen so far is people kissing through plexiglass that can be removed in post, which is absolutely phenomenal.”

One movie in particular, called Christmas Ever After, used the plexiglass between stars Ali Stroker and Daniel di Tomasso. In addition to the plexiglass, the actors and crew also wore a face mask and shield when they were on set.

Christmas Ever After premieres on December 6 on Lifetime.
