Wonder Woman set the record for online streaming subscriptions/payments. The previous record was Tolls world tour at the start of the Pandemic, and trolls made only 70% as many subscriptions/extra rental fees. WW84 is a bonafide hit on streaming. That's why WB wants to move Dune there. They'll make their money. Whether or not piracy affects financial takes is a difficult question, and one that can't easily be answered. The industry has claimed for years it costs them billions, based on the idea that every person downloading it watches it with so many others, and that's one ticket and one disc not sold to each of them. Independent research generally finds the industry numbers to be hugely inflated, that piracy doesn't really cost that much, as most of the people doing it are are those who a) wouldn't pay to see the movie to begin with or b) have already paid and then fall I to category A again - sure they'll pirate and watch it again, but they weren't going to pay a 2nd time anyway, so the overall cost to the industry is nothing. Some studies find it drives sales as people under category A will then buy the movie after watching it. Piracy in general has cratered with the advent of streaming services, with p2p downloads a fraction of what they used to be back in the day. People would rather pay a small amount to watch whatever they want than have the hassle of torrenting it for free. Same as happened with music. Of course, all those studies are also in a pre covid world, without day 1 simultaneous theatrical & streaming options. What it comes down it is nobody knows anything. All past precedents are irrelevant. The only thing for certain is that Legendary and the cast that gave up salary for points can't make their money without a legit theatrical release. A 3rd party distributor making all the profit doesn't do it for them. And then the franchise dies.
