Although movie theaters in certain countries across the world are slowly opening up again—albeit looking a bit different than what we're used to—production houses have announced their decisions to postpone the release of some long-awaited big-budget films.
Wonder Woman 1984, originally scheduled to drop in August, will now be released worldwide on August 2. Christopher Nolan's very much anticipated Tenet has been pushed off a few weeks with a new global release date set for July 31. Matrix 4, currently in paused production, will no longer be released in 2021. The new official drop date is now April 1, 2022. In its stead, Godzilla vs. Kong, originally scheduled to hit theaters on November 20, 2020 will be released on May 21, 2021. The Witches, the fantasy comedy based on the eponymous Roald Dahl novel and starring Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci and Chris Rock, was supposed to land on big screens in October but will now be indefinitely postponed.
Surprisingly, Mulan is sticking to its July 24 release date while the newest Bond, No Time to Die, originally scheduled to hit theaters this April but then moved to November 25, 2020 will actually now drop before that: on November 12 in the UK and November 20 in the United States.
While we patiently await our own return to the theaters, we'll be at home catching up on all the binge-worthy films currently on Netflix.
