Disney adds Mulan, X-Men: The New Mutants and Antlers to the list of movies delayed over the past few days.
Appreciating that it’s not the top concern where Coronavirus is concerned, the spread of the disease nonetheless continues to have a growing impact on cinema.
Earlier this month, Eon and MGM delayed the release of the new James Bond movie, No Time To Die, until November. Then, at the start of the week, Sony put back Peter Rabbit 2 from its imminent release to the start of August.
Now, six more films have been pushed back.
Warner Bros is pushing back the April 17th release of Dream Horse to a thus-far unannounced date.
Universal has announced that Fast & Furious 9 will now not be released for another year. Its new release date has moved to April 2nd 2021.
Paramount, meanwhile, has announced a global delay to the release of A Quiet Place – Part II. It had been due in cinemas next week, but will now arrive later this year. No date has been confirmed. In the US, it has also delayed the upcoming romance The Lovebirds, and the American release of Rapman’s Blue Story. Again, no new date has been announced.
Furthermore, Disney has now also confirmed that it’s delaying Mulan, X-Men: The New Mutants and Antlers from its schedule. New dates later in the year are expected to be sought.
It means that there’s now only one blockbuster movie release left on the schedule for the next two months or so, and that’s another Disney release, Marvel’s Black Widow. Right now, it’s anybody’s guess as to whether that will hold its May release slot.
More as we hear it.
