YouTube to follow Amazon by screening its movies inside theaters

Following YouTube's announcement last month that it intends to spend "hundreds of millions" on original content for Red, it's just unveiled plans for a YouTube-made movie that'll also be released in theaters. And unlike its previous effort, 2016's widely-regarded flop Lazer Team, this project has a serious name attached to it: Susan Sarandon.

I like how this is creating more demand for theatrical product, but right now all the new people are making their money mostly off the non-theatrical end. It's by subscription, so you don't have the theatrical crap shoot. It remains to be seen how theatrical figures in this new 3-screen market. (Movies, TV, streaming.) I don't know, but I suspect it'll be the usual merger and acquisition cycle where the big fish eat the little ones and then start snapping at each other.
