As we mentioned yesterday, the big Hollywood studios don’t expect the public to go to fill the theaters in the coming months. Sony has cancelled virtually all of its premieres of the year, and Universal is poised to do the same. ‘Fast & Furious 9’ was one of the films pioneering in delaying its premiere, when the crisis of the coronavirus was in its early stages, postponing its arrival in theaters a year. Well, now, ‘Minions: The origin of Gru’ has announced the same thing.
The sequel of ‘Minions’ was to get to the end of June 2020 to billboards international, but the disruption in your post-production process in the French studies of Illumination forced Universal to cancel that date. Now reports Deadline that the film will finally arrive on July 2, 2021, just a year after its original date.
It is a movement that demonstrates the complex situation that they are going to live the distributors in the coming months to reposition their premieres. ‘Minions: The origin of Gru’ is a movie summer that might not work so well in an era of autumn. On the other hand, in December and christmas weeks in which the public family tends to go a lot to the film, Universal has already scheduled ‘The Croods 2’. In addition, it is likely that the studies are coordinated to not stepping on each other’s big premieres on each other, so that we will be seeing little by little how to rearrange the calendar.
‘Let’s sing! 2’ is delayed, and ‘Wicked’ returns to fall
Moving ‘Minions: The origin of Gru’ to July 2, 2021, Universal is taking the hollow, ‘let’s Sing! 2’. The sequel of the animals cantarines now come in christmas of 2021. And like a domino effect that we will see repeated in the coming months, ‘Wicked’, scheduled to arrive in December 2021, has been removed from the schedule with no new date given.
To ‘Wicked’ it seems that you have put the evil eye. The film version of the Broadway musical prequel to ‘The wizard of Oz’, is one of those movies damn: it was announced in 2016 for release in December, 2019, but his production was complicating to that Universal delayed until December 2021. A similar case is that of ‘Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune’ for Sony, just when it seemed that he was more directed, has received the kiss of the coronavirus and has returned to the fall calendar.
