A Video Discussing That Horny TayTay Movie Getting Patched (The Jimquisition)



Cats, starring Taylor Swift and Idris Elba as horrible nightmares, is a fine example of how movies are starting to resemble videogames in terms of how they're treated post-launch.


It was basically patched after it went to theaters, replaced with a new version that changed effects and performance timing. Combined with what Marvel has been doing with films such as Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, the concept of post-launch content for movies running at theaters is getting very game-flavored.


The jokes about films getting patches and DLC have all been made, but there's a serious point to be considered, especially when it's predominantly fandom-centric movies getting constantly fiddled with.
