Paramount delays a bunch of films by up to a year – including Scream 5, and the Clifford The Big Red Dog movie as well.

Movie studios continue to juggle their release schedules as they react to the current state of cinema, and the latest to make changes to its slate is Paramount Pictures.

The studio has already sold one or two titles onto Netflix, and big blockbusters such as Top Gun: Maverick have long gone into next year. Now we learn that three more of its movies are being heavily delayed.

First up, the planned G.I. Joe spin-off film Snake Eyes, that had finished filming earlier this year. The movie was on the calendar for October of this year, but with no promotion for it thus far forthcoming, it’s the surprise of pretty much nobody that it now moves back a full year. It’ll be out on October 22nd 2021.

There’s a year delay too for the new Paranormal Activity movie, that was due in March. That’ll now be with us on March 4th 2022.

Scream 5 meanwhile hadn’t had an official release date to this point, but the plan was to film it this year for release in 2021. Now, we won’t get the film until January 14th 2022.

Those waiting for the Clifford The Big Red Dog movie, incidentally, might also want to know that the studio has pushed that too. It was due in November, now it’ll be November 2022.

More as we hear it, as always.
