AMC Entertainment: Dark Days Ahead For Q4 And Beyond

The dearth of new releases coming to cinemas for the rest of 2021 and looking ahead to 2022 will be an obstacle to achieving profitability for exhibitors around the world.

Revenues in Q3 and Q4 have virtually no chance of helping AMC achieve profitability in 2021. With recent new announcements from major studios, 2022 and beyond look doubtful as well.
