Disney threw a wrench in the National Association of Theater Owners’ plans for next month’s CinemaCon with its decision to not have its top executives attend the Las Vegas event. But so far, other major Hollywood studios have not followed suit.

Individuals at Universal, Paramount, Warner Bros., Sony and Lionsgate all tell TheWrap that they are currently monitoring the COVID-19 case rate in Las Vegas, but as things stand they are still planning to hold presentations of their upcoming slates with studio chairmen and distribution heads on stage at Caesar’s Palace.

“We have had meetings about it but it’s a very ‘wait and see’ approach right now,” said one studio insider who spoke on condition on anonymity.
