At the moment, only about 60% of theaters are open across the country. However, while many still remain shut down, new film releases are happening!Over the weekend New Mutants, Unhinged, and Bill & Ted Face the Music were released.
New Mutants managed to rack in over $7 million during its opening weekend. While that might not seem like a high number (remember avengers Endgame made raked in $1.223 billion during their opening.) let’s explain why it is! While 40% of the theaters remain closed in the U.S. The 60% that are open are only allowed to be at 25%-50% capacity due to social distance restrictions.
Following a five-month shutdown, $7 million is quite impressive all things considered! This goes to show that many people love the film industry and it would be a shame to see theaters get shut down for good. Despite everything that has happened in 2020, it looks like theaters are here to stay!
