Hollywood has actually decided tonight’s the night to shove back their slate of movies– including James Bond’s most current getaway No Time To Die, the Uncharted movie, and Ghostbusters: Afterlife. No Time to Die now has a release date of October 8th, Ghostbusters will be pushed back five months to November 11 th, and Uncharted now won’t get here till 2022, Exhibitor Relations reports.
Bond was the big movie whose third hold-up sufficed to force theater chains Regal and Cineworld to close all their United States and UK locations. It was initially slated for April 2020, then got pushed back to November 2020 and now to April2021 If you’re counting, this news marks the 4th hold-up. Instead of releasing the motion picture on streaming, as other studios have actually been doing, MGM seems adamant on premiering the movie in theaters– however by the time it’s safe to do so, there might not be as many of them.
AMC has cautioned investors that it will run out of money, and other theaters likewise might not make it through past the middle of2021 The Bond franchise moving to the end of the year is not an excellent sign.
We can most likely anticipate much more films to be postponed as hold-up stacks on top of hold-up, since only a specific number of films can successfully premiere at physical theaters in any offered period of time.
Big ones we’re waiting on today:
– Black Widow
– Minions: Increase of Gru
– Leading Weapon: Radical
Not as big, however:
– Free Guy
