The studios are already investing in transitional technology and scaling back on hard site acquisitions.
Truth or Dare?

Ehh, never happen. At least not that soon. That just seems way too fast, especially for a business that (despite people constantly saying is on the outs) continues to grow.

Yeah. Ticket sales have been pretty steady for the last 20 years. Cinemas aren't going anywhere in a hurry. VR will grow, for sure, but it won't be film's place that it takes.

Another reason I don't think it'll happen that fast is VR was and is being rushed. The fact that there are so many different kinds and all of them range from kind of to very disappointing. I was at a film festival that had a VR room for the volunteers and they had all of the different headsets. PSVR and oculus were really cool but had plenty of flaws.

Like all other electronics these days, they released imperfect and unfinished products. People won't forget this, as fun as it is in spite of these flaws.

AR will replace VR before that.

AR is Augmented Reality - instead of a headset that functions as a screen, completely removing visual contact with the rest of the world, AR hardware (smartphones, headsets like Google Glass) overlays additional information over the image of the real world. Pokemon Go is probably the best-known application of AR technology so far.
