Are Vue about to make a blockbuster bid for Odeon?

Vue cinemas are reportedly considering a £1 billion bid for Odeon.

The rise of internet streaming companies and the box-office failure of some recent blockbusters have caused Odeon’s parent company to consider disposing of Britain’s largest cinema chain.

Will there always be a place in our lives for the silver screen? Or has the world of big budget, on-demand streaming services rendered the cinema a relic of a by-gone age?

Vue and Odeon will be hoping that upcoming blockbusters, such as the latest Star Wars offering, can convince us all to fall back in love with the cinema. The question is: could they soon be joining forces?
