The year isn’t even a month old and Hollywood has already begun to delay many of its 2021 releases.
Hot on the heels of the White House changing over, a new covid-19 plan put into motion, and talk of a return to some kind of normalcy in the fall, several studios just delayed many of the spring and summer releases to later in the year. And, surely, more are on the way.
Here are the biggest ones as of January 22.
- The James Bond film No Time to Die is moving from April to October 8.
- Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho has moved from April 23 to October 22.
- Ghostbusters: Afterlife moves from June to November 11.
- The Uncharted movie goes from July to February 11, 2022.
- Morbius, the Spider-Man spinoff, has moved from October to January 21, 2022
- The King’s Man moves from March to August 20.
- Bob’s Burgers has been taken off the schedule entirely.
- A Quiet Place Part II is moving from April to September 17.
Other movies like Peter Rabbit 2 and Cinderella are also moving, from early in the year till summer.
And this is just the beginning. Though it hasn’t happened yet, there’s a very good chance movies like F9 and Black Widow will soon follow suit. We’ll let you know when that happens.
