Luca - Hi John! Huge fan, you’re the best. My question is about the limited release of Isle of Dogs. I read that it’s only releasing in 27 theatres, and then it’s expanding from there. What determines a limited release? How does that work? Is it a lack of studio faith? Thanks!
Matthew Yamasaki - Do you think there's a solid chance that Bucky will be one of the character's who bites the dust in Infinity War? Cap seems to be more likely, but wouldn't it be even more devastating and impactful to the audience and Cap's character if his best bud, who he finally got back, were the one to go? Thanks and keep up the great work!
Bryan Lye - Recently, Spielberg commented on movies produced by streaming services, saying that they only get token qualifications for Oscar consideration (by showing for 1 week in LA and NY I assume, based on Academy criteria) and that they should be in the Emmy run instead. However, doesn't a large number of indie films that get Oscar nominations also get the same token consideration? Wide releases often only come after Oscar buzz is generated, at times months later, not before.
Jay Ganglani - Hi John! Big fan of the show from Hong Kong. Recently, I read an article on Variety which stated that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's new film 'Rampage' was tracking for an opening weekend of $35 million. Isn't this opening weekend a bit soft considering it stars arguably the biggest movie star on the planet right now?
