Disney postpones release of blockbusters like MarvelBlack widow, “Steven Spielberg”West Side Story“And Kenneth Brenag”Death on the Nile”For many months. The results are bad news for the display industry, which is furious after being shut down for months due to the coronavirus.
The studio has set a late November release date for Pixar’s “Soul”, much to the surprise of some in the industry who expected the animated family film to move to either Perch later or be released on Disney Plus. The move arranged a cascade of distribution shifts that would improve the theatrical landscape for months. Other Marvel releases, such as “Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Eternals” will all be released on November 21, 2021. Disney’s release date will change everything, but guarantees that box office fees will reach Nadir this year – analysts have already predicted that the epidemic will bring home income between 70% and 80%.
“Black Widow”, starring Scarlett Johansson, was set to debut on November 6, which began to look more and more promising due to the closure of movie theaters along the coast. Diversity Previously reported After Christopher Nolan’s disappointing performance in the US film “Tenet” and “Wonder Woman 1984 Delay”, the studio was looking for a new time to unveil the film on the big screen. “Black Widow” will now open on May 7, 2021.
“Death the Not the Nile” – followed by “Murder on the Orient Express” at the 2017 Office Access box office – will be released on December 18, 2020, with its October 23 premiere. The mystery of the murder, based on Agatha Christie’s novel “Death on the Nile,” appeals to older moviegoers, demographics who would hesitate to return to indoor space during an epidemic.
“West Side Story”, which marks Spielberg’s first foray into musicals, was expected to be the main contender for the Academy Award. The awards career may still be in its future, but not in this year’s sc scare. The “West Side Story” will begin on December 10, 2021, one year later than expected, instead of December 18, 2020.
Due to the interconnected nature of the Marvel cinematic universe, “Black Widow’s” moves moved back to another installment in the superhero franchise. The comic book adventure “Eternals” about the super power alien race will enter on November 5, 2021. This was previously directed on February 12, 2021. The film was directed by Chloe Zoe, starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan and Kumail Nanjiani.
“Marvel made the right and responsible decision,” Nanjiani said in support of the move on Twitter.
“Nothing is more important than health and life,” he wrote. “I can’t tell PPL to go to a movie theater unless I feel safe going to one.”
Marvel’s debut film “Shang Chi” with an Asian lead runs from May 7, 2021 to July 9, 2021. Destiny Daniel Craton will direct an cast that will include Simmu Liu as the title martial arts hero.
Meanwhile, Adrian Lane’s thriller “Deep Water” with Ben Affleck and Anna de Armas will no longer open on November 13, 2020. It will be replaced on August 13, 2021.
The two films will actually lean earlier in the schedule. Horror movie “The Empty Man” with James Badge Dale 4 Oct. 23 will be released on December 4, 2020. Previously, on February 26, 2021, “Kings Man,” will run for two weeks from February. 12. However, the latest entry into the spy franchise was to launch earlier this month.
Many movies have been postponed since the release of “Tenet” with Gerard Butler in 2021, including Universal’s horror thriller “Kandyman” and STX’s disaster film “Greenland”. One of the reasons the studio is reluctant to release major films is because of the two largest movies in the U.S. It makes no sense to be able to open markets, New York and Los Angeles theaters. Cinemas in other parts of the country that have been able to resume operations have not done much business.
About 0% of movie theaters in North America reopened in recent weeks, with many relaunching for the release of “Tenet.” Now, exhibitors face the prospect of months without new content to offer fur to the audience.
