Why go to the theaters to watch a movie when you can watch this decade's biggest disaster movie on your TV for free?

I swear they should be charging for TV coverage of the disaster, that would raise billions for the reconstruction. All it needs is a clever title and a poster with Leonardo de Caprio.

Right now not really concerned if some overseas studios miss out on a bit of revenue.

Cinemas should be filling up again over the upcoming 3-day weekend.

Zenny -- wanna bet? No doubt, cinemas will likely do better this weekend than last, but not even close to normal yet. Folks are still are on survival mode here/hunkering down and priority is on making sure they secure enough food, not seeing a movie.

We're planning to watch a movie during the upcoming Spring break holidays. Life in the rest of Japan doesn't stop because eastern Japan has.
