Scoob streaming

Scoob!, the feature-length animated origin story of how Scooby-Doo and Shaggy helped established Mystery, Inc., that iconic group of teenage crime-solvers, debuted on paid video on demand services just over a month ago on May 15, 2020. Today, WarnerMedia announced that Scoob! will have its exclusive streaming premiere on HBO Max. That part was expected – it’s the immediacy of the streaming premiere date that’s the surprising part. Get the details below, and join us as we ponder whether this could set a new precedent in a post-COVID world. Read More »

When you think of the world of Scooby-Doo, what might pop into your head? There’s a quartet of human friends, of course, and their goofy dog pal. Oh, yes, and their colorful old-school van the Mystery Machine. It’s in that van that they drive around and around, solving supernatural mysteries in spooky locations. And the solutions to those mysteries usually involve a crabby old man hiding under a sheet, just pretending to be a ghost or a vampire or whatnot. That, at least, has been the basic formula of almost every Scooby-Doo story for 50 or so years. What the new film Scoob! presupposes is…what if a Scooby-Doo story had almost none of those elements? It’s a weird, baffling animated feature that’s all too willing to avoid being a Scooby-Doo movie, in favor of a superhero adventure no one asked for.

Warner Bros. originally planned to open Scoob! in theaters on May 15, but obviously, theater shutdowns due to the coronavirus make that impossible. And rather than push Scoob! to a later theatrical date, the studio has instead decided to drop Scoob! directly on digital next month.

We all had a feeling this was coming: the Wonder Woman 1984 release date has been pushed from June to August.

coronavirus delays

With the coronavirus (aka COVID-19) continuing to spread around the world, the film industry is bracing for whiplash: after a record-breaking year at the box office in 2019, some analysts are predicting the virus could result in at least a $5 billion loss in 2020. The virus’s impact is already well underway: 70,000 theaters have been closed in China, the James Bond film No Time to Die delayed its global release by seven months yesterday, and even Baby Yoda toy deliveries might be delayed to the United States because Hasbro’s supply chain has been affected.

But will upcoming would-be blockbusters like F9, Wonder Woman 1984, and Black Widow follow in Bond’s footsteps and move their release dates as well? Here’s what the studios currently have planned. Read More »
