I said my piece on the Craig Bond films; but, at this point, any studio that thinks it is going to make box office sitting on a film until COVID disappears has its head in the sand. That ship has sailed and it is time to face the reality that COVID is likely to affect things for months, if not more. Put the thing out via some pay platform and start recouping investment. It will earn enough back within the first month (probably) to recoup things. Give up the idea of movie theaters and move on to digital delivery and be done with it.
I thnk that makes sense and also, it's quite possible that if or when the Covid problem ever does get under control - say in two or three years, if a safe and effective vaccine can be developed, for example - people will be so happy at the idea being able to go out again in relative safety that some of those movies could be re-released and still get good-sized audiences.
