Disney (DIS) and Sony (SNE) are testing a fresh approach in South Korea by allowing consumers to rent movies on demand while they are still in their first run at theaters. The results of the initiative will be closely watched by U.S. theater operators (CKEC, CNK, RGC) which have been taking a firm stand on not running films without a guaranteed 90-day window before films hit home entertainment systems.

    Doesn't this bring to mind the Spielberg/Lucas interview last week about movie theaters becoming interactive super Imax experience at $50-$100 a throw? Movies as we know them are the next desktop computer.

    All that Lucas/ Speilberg stuff was just sour grapes, of two frustrated filmmakers, who are NOT making the money or the "epics", or more importantly, NOT getting the publicity, that they used to get.

     

    Their Film Fans have gotten older and NOT watching their films, and the younger audiences could care less !

     

    So they come out with some obvious, and carefully crafted "forecasts" ?
