Yet the talks continue. The terms being discussed vary between each studio and each cinema chain, with some talks focusing on a release date of about 17 days after debut, for about $50, or four to six weeks from release for $30, people familiar with the talks said.
You know the game plan long-term here. Strangle out the cinemas, eliminating the competition to downloads, all while getting people used to film downloads that cost $30+.

This weekend I saw April and the Extraordinary World. Its a Studio Ghibli-esque French steampunk anime.
An excellent story, set amongst the industrial gloom of the films world, which shines with those great plot details French films perform so joyfully. I highly recommend you watch it.
