Sony delays almost its entire movie lineup into next year
Sony is the newest movie studio to announce main modifications to its launch slate as a result of COVID-19 pandemic, as reported by Variety. Tentpole films like Uncharted, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and Peter Rabbit 2 are all seeing massive delays, leaving Kevin Hart’s Fatherhood as one of many solely main titles on Sony’s 2020 schedule — and that was itself introduced ahead to October from January.
The upcoming third Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man movie seems to be unaffected; the Far from Home sequel’s launch date was already set as July 16, 2021. Sony’s deliberate July 2020 films, Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Jared Leto’s Morbius, have each been moved into next March.
- Greyhound – TBD (from 6/12/2020)
- Fatherhood – 10/23/2020 (from 1/15/2021)
- Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway – 1/15/2021 (from 08/07/2020)
- Ghostbusters: Afterlife – 03/05/2021 (from 07/10/2020)
- Morbius – 03/19/2021 (from 07/31/2020)
- Uncharted – 10/eight/2021 (from 03/05/2021)
- Untitled Sony/Marvel – TBD (from 10/08/2021)
Sony’s drastic schedule modifications counsel the corporate doesn’t see movie theaters reopening till the top of summer season or later. Other studios have made extra cautious changes — Warner Bros, for instance, moved Wonder Woman 1984 to August 14th from its deliberate June fifth launch date. Disney’s Mulan has been indefinitely delayed, whereas new James Bond movie No Time to Die is now set for November.
