HOLLYWOOD is shooting in Australia, Chinese blockbusters are topping the cinema charts, the US market is stirring - the film industry has surely changed during the pandemic.

Here are some drastic changes notices by cinema fanatics around the world and as compiled by DW.

1.- Australia The New Hollywood.

Australia has the virus largely under control. That's pulling in filmmakers. Netflix, Disney Plus and Amazon are not shooting in Hollywood, but in Australia.

According to the Agency AusFilm, which supports international film productions, 37 US film projects have been outsourced to the country.

Stars like Matt Damon and Nicole Kidman are working in the Land of Oz.

2.- Streaming Services For The Win

Warner Bros will distribute its new films not only in cinemas, but also through streaming. At least 17 films will simultaneously be released in theaters and on the HBO Max Max Portal in 2021, including Judas and The Black Messiah, the Sopranos sequel The Many Saints of Newark and the superhero film  The Suicide Squad. 

Cinema operators are worried about the future of their theaters.

3.- James Bond And Postponement

The latest James Bond adventure, No Time To Die, has been postponed again due to the pandemic. The new theatrical release should now be October 8, 2021, according to the US production studio MGM.

What is probably Daniel Craig's last outing as 007 has been pushed back by a year.

4.- The Growing Waiting List Of Films

The film year 2021 will be different. Because many film releases have been postponed due to closed theaters, cinephiles could possible expect a a concentrated selection from spring or mid-2021.

In addition to the new Bond film, the Marvel film  Black Widow with Scarlett Johansson as well as the sequel to TopGun with Tom Cruise are on hold.

5.- The Blend : 'Bridgerton' and Covid

After Season 1 of Bridgeton topped the Netflix charts in 83 countries and was streamed by 82 million households - more than ever before - a sequel is now due. 

Since the series is based on many intimate scenes, Phoebe Dynevor, actress of Daphne Bridgerton, has great doubts that a second season can be filmed under current hygiene rules.
