The National Association Of Theater Owners is an American-based organization consisting of multiple global movie theater chains, owners, and hundreds of independent theater operators. The National Association of Theater Owners, also known as NATO, was formed in 1965 by merging the largest movie theater trade organization, the Allied States Association of Motion Picture Exhibitors, and the theater owners of America. NATO conducts its operations for more than 35,000 motion picture screens in all 50 American states and 33,000 screens in hundreds of other countries.
NATO has been conducting its events under the name of CinemaCon since 2011, and NATO's members sponsor the management and funding for all the possibilities. CinemaCon events are usually held in Las Vegas, Nevada, at Caesars Palace. Its first and second events were conducted there, and its last 2022 event was conducted at the same place. NATO could not organize the CinemaCon event in 2020 and 2021 due to the covid'19 pandemic.
Since the annual CinemaCon convention was not held for the last two years, this year's convention was crucial for exhibitors to represent their productions to emerge themselves in business again after the covid'19 pandemic. As with all previous events, this year's CinemeCon event was also hosted by the National Association Of Theater Owners. It gathered the respective Hollywood Studios and cinema operators from April 25 to April 28. All major Hollywood Studios presented their upcoming movies onstage inside The Colosseum at Caesars Palace during this four-day event.
Disney at CinemaCon 2022
The Walt Disney Company is a United States-based multinational company formed in 1923.
Since the 1980s, it started to acquire multiple other media platforms, including Pixar, Marvel Studios, Searchlight, Lucasfilm, 20th-century picture, and 20thcentury animations, to widen its production line and increase its market share.
The Walt Disney Co took 90 minutes at the CinemaCon event to present the footage and trailers of all its upcoming movies, including Doctor Strange, Avatar 2, Amsterdam, Lightyear, and Bob's Burger. Before the presentation, Tony Chambers, executive VP of Walt Disney, acknowledged how the entertainment landscape was changing and claimed that Disney's power, combined with all of its media platforms, cannot be matched with any other competitor; it will keep on producing high-quality.
Doctor Strange will be released on May 6, 2022, and Kevin Feige, media person for Marvel Studios, informed the audience that it has already earned $42 million in bookings. Feige then presented extended footage of Doctor Strange, featuring a wedding scene with Rachel McAdam, who owns the ability to travel through the multiverse, and gets threatened by one eye octopus, to stop the wedding before she walks down the aisle because the one-eye octopus was a henchman that was after her.
Lightyear will be released from Pixar's platform on June 17, 2022. Disney previewed 30 minutes-long Pixar footage at the event. The movie is based on a Toys Story iconic character, Space Range Buzz Lightyear. In the upcoming movie Lightyear, Buzz will be a human character. During the movie, Buzz will be seen in his iconic space suit, investigating with his friends and the mission commander on another planet where there are signs of life.
In the movie, there is an explicit scene of same-gender kissing, added after several discussions among the moviemakers. Still, it got criticized during the event by the audience.
Russell's new movie "Amsterdam" will hit cinemas on November 4, 2022. Its trailer was presented at the CinemaCon event, according to which the movie's story revolves around three close friends. My close friends were Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and John David Washington, who were a doctor, nurses, and attorneys, respectively. They all met in Belgium. They found themselves at the center of the most shocking secret plots in the history of America. It was described as an epic crime story.
Avatar: The Way of Water
Walt Disney ended their presentation with the first exclusive teaser trailer for James Cameron's Avatar sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water. It is anticipated to be the biggest blockbuster movie of all.
