7 major movies delayed amid Covid-19 pandemic

First, No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond movie was moved to November, and now more studios are following suit.

Many movies have been forced to be delayed, but some of those are particularly hard for fans to get their heads around. Nevertheless, it's still possible that some or all of these movies could also be pushed back to 2021 or later.

Studios may also follow Sony's move of taking summer 2020 films and moving them to release slots already carved out for upcoming films that were either in pre-production or filming when the pandemic forced projects to be halted.

The company has also announced that an untitled Sony/Marvel movie has also been delayed from its original release date of 8th October 2021 but the studio has not revealed the new date for this.

Virtually every major Sony title was moved out of 2020, with the exception of Kevin Hart drama "Fatherhood", which moved up to October 23, 2020, from January 15, 2021. Warner Bros.is postponing "Wonder Woman 1984" to August 14 instead of June 5.

These release dates for the United States only.

Several of Sony's other upcoming releases have been delayed, including Greyhound (from June 12, 2020, to an unknown date), Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (from August 7, 2020, to January 15, 2021), Uncharted (from March 5, 2021, to October 8, 2021), and an untitled Sony/Marvel project (from October 8, 2021, to an unknown date). Even if a doomsday scenario for movie theaters is avoided and they are able to reopen by July, Sony's plan to move their biggest films of the year from the summer shows how studios may be hesitant to get right back to sending big-budget blockbusters into theaters.
