Numerous films getting delayed in response to the Coronavirus outbreak that has required folk across the globe to stay indoors and isolated. Moreover, movie theaters in numerous foreign countries like China and Italy have been closing entirely. Under those conditions, major movie studios have realized that this isn’t the ideal time to premiere several theatrical releases of 2020 previously scheduled to debut in either March or April 2020. Here is our list of films getting delayed in 2020 for you to update.
The first movie we have to mention in this list of films getting delayed is the poor Mulan.
Mulan was supposedly released on 27 March. Niki Caro’s film with a $200m budget is currently waiting for a new date.
The New Mutants
Like its sibling Mulan, another product of the Mouse House has been delayed indefinitely after years of sitting on the shelf. It was supposedly released before Mulan a few days on April 3.
Fast & Furious 9
The biggest push back belongs to Fast 9 since Universal declared that they will push the release of Fast 9 back a year to spring 2021. Specifically, Universal Pictures moving the global release date to April 2021, with North America opening on April 2.
A Quiet Place Part II
Paramount hasn’t given any notice about the exact new release date of A Quiet Place 2.
No Time to Die
Another chapter of James Bond was moved from April to November this year “after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace.” Accordingly, James Bond is back in town on November 12, 2020, in the U.K. and on November 25, 2020, in the US.
Another victim was dragged down in this sinking ship is The Lovebirds. Paramount scheduled the movie to hit theaters on April 3. The studio hasn’t set a new release date yet in response to the global impact of coronavirus.
The first solo film of Black Widow would originally hit the theater on May 1 in the US. No new date has been given at this time.
Minions: The Rise of Gru
Universal has postponed the July release of Illumination’s sequel, Minions: The Rise of Gru. The studio is looking for a new release date for the return of Gru and the Minions, CEO Chris Meledandri said in a statement.
Wonder Woman 1984
Wonder Woman 1984, which was originally set for a release on June 5 will be re-dated to August 14th, 2020.
Warner Bro has postponed its theatrical release indefinitely. James Wan’s next horror movie was dated for August 14.
Along with Malignant, Warner Bro has been compelled to delay many of its big upcoming movies such as Scoob. Scoob will have to sit on the shelf for a while now. It was supposed on the deck on May 15.
In the Height
In the Height now joins a seemingly endless list of the film with the delayed released date. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical adaptation was postponed from its original June 26 release date.
Trolls World Tour
After a wave of recent release date delays from big names, Trolls World Tour, hailing from Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation, has moved its release up a week to April 10, 2020. In the process, it’s become the only major studio release on the calendar for April 2020.
Antebellum stars Janelle Monáe as a successful author who finds herself “trapped in a horrifying reality”. This horror-thriller was to be released on April 24 but is held back now while Lionsgate waits to see the situation with the coronavirus plays out from here.
Scott Copper’s horror film Antler has been officially removed from the studio’s release date, which was stated to be due out on April 17.
The Personal History Of David Copperfield
The movie was scheduled to open on May 8 in the US after having already hit the UK near the start of 2020. However, it’s now been taken off the release calendar in the response of the covid-19 pandemic. It’s anyone’s guess when the film will see the light of the day again.
The Woman In The Window
The final film produced under the Fox 2000 label before it was disbanded by Disney was planned to release in the middle of May, but that seems impossible now. Unfortunately, this is the second time The Woman in the Window’s been delayed. It does not currently have a new release set.
The movie was originally scheduled to arrive at theaters in January, but was shifted to May and has been pulled from the calendar altogether due to the coronavirus. Luckily, being a smaller release, there’s a decent chance Run won’t have too much trouble finding a spot at theaters this year.
