There's a new Black Widow trailer. It includes some new footage, including a very young person with blue hair (New Rockstars says this could be a young Natasha). If you're not familiar with Task Master, that character (in the comics) is able to copy the moves of someone he (or she) studies. One of the locations in the movie is Budapest, which if you remember Black Widow and Clint Barton reference a time there so maybe this covers it. The end of the trailer announces that the movie's release date is July 9th in theaters and on Disney+ premier access, "at an additional cost." I recently reported that to watch this on Disney+, you're going to have to pay $30 for it, which I still think is a bit expensive (as movie tickets in my area are $8 each and new Blu-Rays might cost that much or less).

If you want to get some more details, check out this video posted by New Rockstars:

Are you looking forward to this? How or when do you think you'll see it?

Yeah the theory about that price tag is movie tickets are usually 10-15 or so and if you are a family of four or something you're saving a ton on it, but if you are watching it alone it's definitely a drag.

But it's mostly the newness of it. Blu Rays are $20ish but that's long after release and they only get a fraction of their cash from people owning it. You can definitely benefit if you don't want to watch it launch day.

I'm kinda hoping things are getting normal-ish by July. Or at least August. I'm more interested in seeing The Suicide Squad in theaters than this but I'll see both if I can do so safely. Yay vaccines!

Yeah, I'm wondering how it works out w/ that $30 price, is it a digital movie you get to keep and watch whenever you want? Although, I think it seems more likely that would be true, so long as you're paying for Disney+.

I might go to the theater as I did with Godzilla vs. Kong, but that was pretty much a 17th birthday present for Vinny, since it was supposed to come out on his birthday. If he's around (he goes to his mom's during the summers), I might take him to see it. If I'm alone, I'm not sure if I'll go to the theater. I'm also looking forward to The Suicide Squad and that's another movie I may go see in the theater, if Vinny's around.

I get my first (of two) vaccination in a few days. Jon said he was getting his soon, too.

I am planning on paying the $30 right on July 9th to see this. I used to see the "big" movies (Star Wars, Marvel, etc) with friends, and I'm wondering if I could get together with some friends in one of our backyards, set up a TV and fling the movie to it so we could all watch it together. Or perhaps by July we'll be comfortable with hanging out in each other's houses, as I bet we'll all be vaccinated by then. I have a good TV and sound system; the only thing I'll miss is surround sound from a theater 🙂

Sounds awesome, Adam!

I am probably going to pay the $30 to see this one. I should be fully vaccinated by then, but not sure I am ready to go to a movie theater until covid cases are on the decline. Maybe by then they will be.

I’m with you on the criteria Will. I should be as immune as I’m going to be, but it’s not a panacea.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 04/08/2021 at 01:45am

My though is if friends have the vaccine then we’re all safe to hang out. Maybe others can with masks on that don’t have the vaccine yet?

Hope we can see this one in theaters. It would a fun way to go back to do that.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Super Member wrote on 04/08/2021 at 05:19pm

Yeah, vaccinated friends I am cool with. It is the other people and the theaters that I worry about.

Travis   Admin wrote on 04/10/2021 at 07:37pm

Yep, that's exactly my criteria too.
