Unless you try the streaming, the most anxiously awaited films of the year already are not going to be brand new when you had thought, the whole world is in crisis (and quarantine) because of coronavirus and that means that cinemas are closed, nobody is coming out of the house and not have any sense to release a movie knowing that nobody’s going to go see it and it’s not going to generate any income.
When everything was just beginning, Pixar decided not to change the premiere of Onwardthe film Tom Holland and Chris Pratt about two brothers on a magical mission, and this became one of the biggest failures at the box office in the study, so that, seeing this, the rest of the studies took the decision to stand in solidarity with the people in quarantine and change the dates (although it is also for that not to happen to them the same at the box office).
As a result, films like Black Widow, the sequel to A Quiet Place, Mulan and The French Dispatch, the new film by Wes Anderson that was presented to a Timothée Chalamet naked in the poster, had to cancel all their plans and move their premieres until the last months of the year. In the case of Marvel, it also means that the entire calendar for the phases 4 and 5 could be delayed.
The first “hit” came when No Time To Diethe last film of Daniel Craig as James Bond announced that they were going to cancel their premierebut, taking into account what is still happening in the world, it was logical to think that something like this would happen and that this was not going to be the only film affected. The announcement of Bond it was just the first of dozens of Blockbusters that have already taken the same decision in an attempt to save the films, and to avoid that the fans go to the cinema and take the risk to infect others.
The large gatherings are banned at the moment, but things will not remain this way forever and the whole world is waiting for a vaccine or another solution. The good news is that the movies cancelled you are not going to, they just have new release dates for months in which the crisis is under control and we can all go back to doing our normal lives.
Many films have been delayed, these are their new premiere dates.
