Sony has postponed the release dates of numerous titles, including “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”, “Cinderella” by Camilla Cabello, “Uncharted” with Tom Holland and “Morbius” by Sony / Marvel starring Jared Leto.
Cinderella will hit theaters on July 16 instead of February 5. This delay moved the adaptation of the video game “Uncharted”, which was originally scheduled for mid-July, to February 11, 2022. Meanwhile, “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” moved two months back from April 2 to June 11. In turn, the sequel to “Ghostbusters” was postponed to November 11.
Sony’s latest calendar change came minutes after MGM delayed “No Time to Die,”
Many had expected Cinderella to cancel her release date in February because the studio hadn’t released a single piece of marketing or promotional material for Kay Cannon’s fairy adaptation. With the vacancy of “Cinderella”, “Disney’s The King’s Man” and 20th Century (March 12), it is the only major title still planned for the first quarter of 2021.
Although most major films shot in the first few months of the year have already escaped by mid-summer or later, traditional Hollywood studios may continue to postpone tents if coronavirus cases continue to rise. The movies are slowly returning to the United States, as evidenced by the weak box office Last weekend’s action thriller by Liam Neeson “Sagittarius” won the weekend with only $ 3 million. These ticket sales certainly do not inspire big studios to take risks with their most tumultuous films.
