So the virus strikes again! Looks like this is going to be one sucky summer for movies. Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 we have all gone on lockdown. Sitting here we all wonder how long until we’re back to our normal daily lives, and how long until we’re rid of this invisible menace known as the CoronaVirus.
Sony just announced that it’s pretty much going to hold off on releasing anything this summer, and after what happened to “BloodShot” which was an excellent movie all I have to say that Sony making this move makes total sense I mean movie theaters are closed so what, and who are they going to open too? This isn’t going to be going away anytime soon as it is folks so the studios pushing their movies back until next year is just smart practice at this point. The Olympics did the same thing, and as it is I have no hope we’re going to get any major sports leagues opening their stadiums, and arenas during this pandemic.
Here are the major Sony movies which are being pushed to next year with which include the movie I wanted to see the most this Summer “Ghostbusters 3: Afterlife” which looks awesome.
The Tom Hanks-led “Greyhound,” originally set for June 12th 2020, is now a TBD title.
“Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway,” originally set for August 7th 2020, will now open January 15th 2021.
“Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” originally set for July 10th 2020, will now open March 5th 2021.
Marvel film “Morbius,” originally set for July 31st 2020, will now open March 19th 2021.
The Tom Holland-led “Uncharted,” originally set for March 5th 2021, will now open December 8th 2021.
A previously undated untitled Marvel film has also been set for October 8th 2021, while the Kevin Hart-led “Fatherhood” has been moved up from January 2021 to October 23rd 2020.
The schedule is the most sweeping change made by a major studio since the coronavirus pandemic and the closing of most cinemas in North America in recent weeks and suggests Sony is not expecting cinemas to be open again until mid-late Summer.
