Streaming is the Force Shrinking the Theater to DVD Dates

The time between when a film arrives in theaters and then debuts on DVD or Blu-ray is going to change dramatically in a few years. Get Out’s producer Jason Blum says that within two years most films will be either day-and-date theatrical or video-on-demand releases. He believes that this doesn’t mean films will never be shown only in theaters but a fair amount will pass movie houses and just be available for home viewing. Blum thinks that Netflix and Amazon have made distribution more efficient and lead to some films being made that wouldn’t have if they only had to be a success at theaters. Warner Brothers studio head Kevin Tsujihara told an audience just recently that the studio is working on a plan that would have films available on streaming services two weeks after their debut in theaters. He believes that doing so will grow the market and kill the film piracy market since you could see a clear version of a film on your big screen TV instead of looking at a cheap bootleg.
