Good that it’s getting a traditional disc release too, though. Gives hope to the Snyder League's chances that we'll see a release eventually.

Wal-Mart already has it out to purchase. Was tempted but I'll wait to rent.

In the tradition of horse-blindered Hollywood executives, who never think too deeply about sudden entertainment trends, it seems only ONE lesson was learned from "Look at all the money Trolls:World Tour made from skipping theaters and going digital-premiere!"

Another setback for Universal and their dream...

Also in news looks like scoob is in first place at the box office worldwide. Should have waited and not thrown it dtv in america wb. It took 900k in one country and $1.8M total in five markets.

WB screwed up. Should have waited.

https://deadline.com/2020/07/internatio ... 202986098/
As the international box office slowly limps back to life, the tendency for audiences to lean into fresh and local titles continues. France, for example, saw a 23% increase in ticket sales across the Top 10 over the most recent weekend, led by Gaumont’s new local comedy Tout Simplement Noir and followed by Warner Bros’ Scoob!, also a new entry, which did $900K in the Hexagon – and $1.8M total in five markets.

Scoob! led play in the market, woofing up $319K from 124 cinemas. Last week’s No. 1, local family pic Pirates Down The Street, added another $143K from 122 sites and has cumed $444K. The Top 10 titles generated $1.18M, a slight 6% increase from last session. Capacity and social distancing restrictions are being eased gradually, although the current amount of seats and shows is only about 35%-40% of normal.

Yep, very shortsighted. Even with those voices I think it would've been a hit over here.
