Well, we finally have some good news for you.
To accommodate delayed films like Mulan and Black Widow, the theatrical releases of many movies have been shifted.
Here are the newly announced dates of some of the most awaited films of the year, starting with Mulan and Black Widow.
Mulan will be in theatres from July 24th, which is four months after its original release date. Black Widow has taken the place of its Marvel sibling The Eternals. Hence, Phase 4 will begin later this year. The Eternals, on the other hand, will come out next year on February 12th. And Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been stalled for a November 2021 release now.
Ryan Reynold’s Free Guy will now come to theatres on December 11th whereas The Jungle Cruise is moved a year ahead and will open July 30th, 2021. The French Dispatch, which was originally slated for July 24th, will not hit the theatres on October 16th. Fox’s New Mutants still doesn’t have a release date.
“To avoid catastrophic losses to the studios, these titles must have the fullest possible theatrical release around the world. While one or two releases may forgo theatrical release, it is our understanding from discussions with distributors that the vast majority of deferred releases will be rescheduled for theatrical release as life returns to normal.” – reads the statement from the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO).
