These movies have been delayed due to the coronavirus.
The corona virus has already caused the necessary delays and cancellations in the world. This is also the case in the film industry. To make everything clear, we have a list of films that have been delayed this year by the virus.
No Time to Die
This James Bond film was the first major film to be delayed due to the corona virus. The last film with Daniel Craig in 007’s shoes was supposed to be in theaters in April 2020. The reason for the delay is partly the fear that cinemas will soon close because of the virus and that there was therefore not enough profit to be made for the blockbuster. The new date for No Time to Die is November 12, 2020.
A Quiet Place Part 2
The prequel to the successful horror film A Quiet Place was to be screened in Dutch cinemas for the first time next week. The film is therefore already finished, because there are already a number of journalists who were allowed to see and judge the film. Probably the movie has been delayed for the same reason as the James Bond movie. There is too great a chance that not enough people will go to the cinema in the coming period.
F9 (Fast & Furious 9)
The new movie in the Fast and the Furious franchise has also been postponed. This film has not been moved for a few months, but almost a whole year. The film was actually supposed to be in theaters on May 21, now we can only watch the film from April 2021.
Disney’s live-action adaptation was supposed to be out this month, but unfortunately … this movie has also been delayed. The film had previously disappeared from the release lists in China, Japan and South Korea, with no new release date. Now there is no more release date for the film in the rest of the world, so it remains to be seen when exactly Mulan will be playing.
The New Mutants
The X-Men spin-off was supposed to hit cinemas from April 6 and has now, like Mulan, been delayed with no new release date. The film starring Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, like many other films, has been postponed due to concerns about the corona virus.
The same goes for Antlers, again from Disney. This horror film by Guillermo del Toro was scheduled to run from April 16 and, like New Mutans and Mulan, has not been given a new release date. We don’t know what this means for future Disney movies, but some movies will come straight to Disney +.
Those are the movies that have now been postponed due to the coronavirus, but many more are likely to follow. How about Black Widow in April, Wonder Woman in June and Ghostbusters: Legacy? Understandable, but a pity.
