I thought they give 50% off coupon for DreamWorks titles.

Why does this not seem like a good deal to me? $20 for a 4K RENTAL?! I get it, it's essentially $15 net for the rental after the credit, but you can BUY new 4K movies at that price. Since it's skipping theaters, are they justifying it as "instead of spending $10-15 per person for a family to go to the theater (family of 4 is $40-60), you're spending $20 to watch it in the comfort of your home?"

That's exactly their justification. I don't need to watch movies at release, so I will just wait to buy this one when available. If this was a purchase for $20 with $5 credit I would probably do it. But for me personally, I can't justify a rental at this price point. Others are fine with it though.

Agreed. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Disney is doing it right by fast-tracking some of these new hits to Disney+ like Frozen II, Onward, and how Artemis Fowl is skipping theaters and going straight to VOD. Dreamworks needs to follow suit, team up with a streaming service, and figure out something better than $20 - $5 credit for a rental.

Yes, and I thought Onward was much better than I expected it to be.

There is a big difference. Onward was released in theater before the Virus outbreak. They changed to strategy and pushed it to Disney+.
By doing so, this was their obvious plan

1) Write off Onward as a loss.
2) Use onward to get some new subscribers for Disney+. Remember Streaming competition just heated up since almost the entire world population is now indoor and for Disney_, there is a lot more to gain there.

For Trolls, it is a different case.

1) Universal/Comcast does not have a platform like Netflix or Disney+ yet.
2) Troll is not yet released anywhere. They could have either postponed the release or try something new like direct VOD release which they did.

Let us see how it goes. If this works out, we can expect lot more VOD releases of major studio movies.

I think this will be here to stay. It's going to take a long time, even when restrictions are lifted, for people to feel comfortable in large crowds. In theater rentals have been around a while, but they were lesser known titles.

Right. That's why I said Frozen II and Onward that fast-tracked to VOD after being in theaters. Artemis Fowl is similar to Trolls in that it's skipping theaters and going straight to Disney+. So, my argument is that Artemis Fowl and Trolls are similar in that they are skipping theaters and going straight to VOD. The difference is that Artemis Fowl requires a Disney+ subscription and Trolls does not require a subscription to a streaming service. But Dreamworks should be able to figure out a better deal than $20 for a rental. As a consumer, I'm going to jump on a Disney+ subscription for a huge library and upcoming movies straight to VOD versus $20 for EACH movie as a rental

My 2 cents: If you have a large family and decent home theater setup and you would've spent $20+ at the theater for your family, then this may be a good deal for you. However, if you're a single person or have just 1 child, you could've gone to a $5 matinee and only spent $10 at the theater. Then don't forget AMC's A-List where you could watch up to 12 movies per month for $20 (or $1.67 each) which makes this $20 - $5 = $15 price seem like a terrible deal.

As z1ma8 said, virtually all popular movies (as this will be) get released on 4K physical disc for around $20. It's pretty hard not to find a $10-$20 deal on a physical 4K+Bluray within the first year (usually around BF), so if you have any sort of patience and can wait to see a movie, then putting this same money towards owning the physical disc is a far better option than a rental.

So, it's mostly based on your family size and your impatience level. I'm hoping if/when theaters open again, that A-List will resume (without price increases) and Trolls World Tour will be shown. Regardless, it's going to be a cold day in a certain place before I'd pay so much for a rental.

If this is going to be a trend, I'm not going to be part of it. I would have no problem skipping theaters and releasing movies straight into homes, but since they can't see how many people are watching to charge a per person fee, apparently studios are going to assume you have a big family and charge you a lot. That won't work for me.

That's probably their justification, but I wonder if studios are aware of AMC A-List or that AMC has (well, had) $5 showings all day long on Tuesdays in my area? This $10-$15 per person theater price I keep hearing about is nothing I've ever seen in my life, but I'm not on the coast where the rich elites live. I guess $10-$15 per person must be select areas like Manhattan. It seems like they are basing their rental prices on the highest prices in the country instead of flyover country.

Point taken & I would typically agree, but given the current circumstances I'm willing to splurge for my kids -- even if it is a rental

Don't Hulu and Comcast have some ownership in common?
