Radius/TWC Takes ‘It Follows’ Wide in Theaters, Pushes Back VOD Date

Finally, RADiUS/The Weinstein Company has opted to push out horror hit “It Follows” beyond the limited theater expansion already planned for this Friday. (Bloody Disgusting reported this.) Exhibition sources report that late Wednesday (after ongoing debates within the company all week), Radius-TWC began to inform theaters that the initial VOD date, set for March 27, would be postponed. They’re going wide to 1000 theaters Friday. – Tom Brueggemann, indieWIRE

It’s Worse Than You Think: MPAA Global Box Office Report

5. The domestic share of the box office total keeps falling: The U.S./Canada part of the full figure dropped to 28.6%. from 30.4% in 2013. As the domestic share declines, more movies will be made mainly with their foreign appeal in mind, and elements that might have more at home interest – in themes, stories, demographics – could have trouble getting greenlit, at least above a certain level of budget.

7. Digital has won: 90% of screens worldwide now play digital, up from 83% in 2013. Near universal digital play is almost here, despite pleas as late as this week from directors like Christopher Nolan to keep a place for celluloid film.
