Disney Boss Values “Flexibility” With Day-And-Date Release Model; ‘Shang-Chi’s 45-Day Window “An Interesting Experiment”
Disney CEO Bob Chapek continued to emphasize the flexibility of the studio’s controversial theatrical-day-and-date Disney+ Premier model given the uncertain times of Covid.
“We value flexibility in being able to make last-minute calls,” Chapek said during Thursday’s earnings call to discuss Disney’s Q3 earnings, without indicating any other future dynamic window releases beyond the studio’s recent summer handful of Cruella, Black Widow and Jungle Cruise. 
“Certainly when we planned we didn’t anticipate the resurgence of Covid,” he added, also indicating that there’s “nothing in stone” in regards to the distribution prospects of the studio’s future theatrical titles.
In regards to 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy respecting a theatrical window this coming weekend, Chapek acknowledged that the Fox title acquired in the merger came with a previous distribution agreement from which Disney couldn’t veer. As Deadline indicated today, we heard that Disney kept Free Guy theatrical due to a previous pay-one agreement with HBO; that’s the reason it couldn’t send the Ryan Reynolds movie to Disney+ Premier, which is the upper tier of the streaming service where subscribers can purchase current theatrical titles for $29.99 each.
As far as the theatrical window for the upcoming Labor Day weekend release of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Chapek called the 45-day frame for the pic before it hits Disney+ “an interesting experiment,” and “another data point” for the studio as it juggles theatrical releases with its streaming service.

Shang-Chi Early Reactions Promise The MCU's Best Action Movie
Marvel Studios held the world premiere of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in Los Angeles on Monday, August 16. The cast, crew, and many other celebrities, as well as select entertainment journalists, attended the first showing of the highly anticipated MCU movie. While full reviews are still embargoed until closer to Shang-Chi's September 3 release date, those in attendance were able to share their non-spoiler reactions on social media.
Joseph Deckelmeier #BlackLivesMatter
3 things. 
#shangchi has on the best best #MCU origins I’ve seen.
The action in #SahangChi is some of the best I’ve seen in the MCU!
@SimuLiu is my favorite actor in the #MCU and is welcomed to karaoke with us at any time!
#ShangChi is awesome. This movie hits all that Marvel does well (pacing, humor, character) and adds action like we’ve never seen from the MCU before!
Lots of people are about to have a new favorite Marvel hero.
Darker than expected. Loads of fun. Integral to MCU Phase 4!
#ShangChi is fantastic. It's full of INCREDIBLE, beautifully choreographed fight scenes and full of badass women. Get ready to know Simu Liu's name if you don't already. Marvel has another hit on its hands.
Steven Weintraub
#shangchi is like no Marvel movie you’ve seen. Love that it opens the door to a new world that I can’t wait to see more of. @SimuLiu literally kicks so much ass and he is perfectly cast. Got to see it in @imax tonight and this is how you want to see it. Looked and sounded perfect
POC Culture
It’s an amazing blend of East meets West! Hong Kong martial arts action comes to the #MCU & CHANGES THE GAME!!! 
It’s emotional, beautiful & HILARIOUS! 
This isn’t like ANY MCU film to date. WOW! #Marvel #MCU @shangchi @MarvelStudios @SimuLiu @awkwafina
Wendy Lee Szany
Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings is PHENOMENAL. Get hyped. Even fight scene/action sequence is better than the last. @SimuLiu fully embraces the marvel superhero role. Amazing imagery. Killer soundtrack. You’ll want to see this on the big screen. #shangchi
Just got out of #ShangChi. The action sequences were fantastic. It was a fun movie. I enjoyed it. Tony Leung looks amazing. I like the idea/ theme of family too.
Dorian Parks
#ShangChi is an action packed adventure that checks all the summer blockbuster boxes. Simu shines bringing a long overdue comics character to the silver screen. 
The fighting is another level and it has some hilarious moments throughout it.
Eric Goldman
I really dug #ShangChi! There is a lot not in the trailers (maybe avoid ads in the next couple of weeks I fear will show more?) and it has its own vibe and distinct elements that make it stand out and not feel like a standard origin story. And Simu Liu makes for an awesome hero.
Drew Taylor
#ShangChi is an absolute triumph, unexpectedly spiritual and emotionally complex, with some of the very best action in the MCU. @SimuLiu is your new favorite Avenger and the movie’s myriad influences (everything from Jackie Chan to Hayao Miyazaki) pay off big time). Astounding.

Stunt Coordinator, Brett Chan talks about working on #IronFist: “Everyones fighting and the main actor didn’t want to train, it’s like guys give me something to work with here. That’s why all the best sequences were with Jessica Henwick cause she trained 4 hours a day!”
