If you believed movie theaters went to spring back in action after being shut down on account of this Coronavirus pandemic, well think again. Warner Bros has delayed the launch of this much-anticipated Christopher Nolan film from July 17 to July 31. The movie joins blockbusters such as Wonder Woman 1984, which was pushed back by two months from August 14 to October 2. Godzilla vs. Kong, which was postponed by six months, from November 20 to May 21, 2021. Two months pushed back the Tom and Jerry film from December 23 and will premier on March 5, 2021. At length, about a year since the film will hit theatres rather than the planned date of May 21, 2021, will also postpone the much-hyped Matrix 4.
These massive changes in the launch schedule were declared over the weekend by Warner Bros. Movie theatres could be potential hotboxes for the Coronavirus to disperse, if anything, and needs to be handled as such. It is clear that Warner Bros is currently looking at jump-starting the film industry and needed to reshuffle its film’s launch dates. The manager was adamant about his movies as he doesn’t find the marketplace getting a theatrical release. And, although film theatres have begun opening up in individual states in the US and Europe, the world’s rest isn’t that lucky. China canceled plans of theaters because another round of Coronavirus instances was reported.
