Hollywood just postponed (almost) all major movies

29 Jul 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Hollywood has bad news. Star Wars, Avatar, Top Gun: Maverick, Mulan, A Quiet Place 2 and Spider-Man 3 are just some of the major movies that have been delayed in the past week.

Film buffs, patience

Tenet keeps getting postponed and Disney has taken Mulan off the calendar. The two movies were supposed to mark the grand re-opening of theaters across the world. First in July, then later in July, then mid-August. In the past week, Hollywood has postponed everything from Star Wars and Avatar 2 to Top Gun: Maverick and A Quiet Place 2. Some of these movies are ready to go while others were delayed due to production halt.

Delayed movies

This is in addition to many previously postponed titles, including Wonder Woman 1984, Bond: No Time to Die, Soul, and F9. Other movies such as Trolls World Tour, Scoob, and Greyhound premiered as home releases, either on PVOD (premium video-on-demand) or subscription services. Warner Bros is now planning to release Tenet in late August or early September, depending on your region, but the timeline could still shift, especially if the coronavirus situation worsens. Other than Tenet the first major theatrical release is planned for October 2020. Disney said that the next instalments of Star Wars and Avatar have both been postponed by an additional year. Disney, Paramount, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros have all handed off or moved medium-budget movies to streaming services but the biggest titles remain theatrical releases. The CEO of AT&T, who owns Warner, said that there are absolutely no plans to debut Tenet on its recently launched HBO Max service. On the other side of the fence many film buffs and fans are getting impatient and are voicing their concerns on social media. Some had expected that the next X-Men movie (X-Men: The New Mutants) to shift to Disney+. A fan group had even created a fake video commercial to announce a streaming debut. However, Disney remains steadfast in its plans – for now.
