Postponement of ‘Black Widow’, ‘West Side Story’, ‘Shank-C’ release

Disney postpones release of fall blockbusters like MarvelBlack widow, “Steven Spielberg”Western storyAnd Kenneth BranakinDeath in the Nile“Within several months. These results are bad news for the exhibition industry, which faces severe headaches after being closed for several months due to the corona virus.

The studio has a release date for Pixar’s “Soul” in late November, which surprised some in the industry who expected the animated family film to move to Perch later or be released on Disney Plus. These moves set the stage for distribution changes that will elevate the theatrical landscape over the months. Other Marvel releases such as “Shank Sea and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Eternal” are all set to make a deep debut by 2021. Disney’s release date changes everything, but this year’s box office revenue is guaranteed to reach a pulse – analysts have already predicted that the gross domestic product will fall by 70% to 80% due to the epidemic.

“Black Widow,” starring Scarlett Johansson, is set to debut on November 6, which is increasingly unlikely due to one-day beach theaters being closed. Variety Previously announced After the disappointing performance of Christopher Nolan’s “Denet” in the United States and the delay of “Wonder Woman 1984”, the studio noticed a new time to release the film on the big screen. “Black Widow” will now open on May 7, 2021.

“Death on the Nile” – the box office hit of 2017 “Murder on the Orient Express” – on December 18, 2020 with its original Oct. Empty 23 Premier. A murder mystery based on Agatha Christie’s novel “Death on the Nile” appeals to an old movie-goer, a figure who may be reluctant to return to the interior during epidemics.

“West Side Story” about Spielberg’s first musical instrument was expected to be a major Academy Award contender. An award-winning career may still be in its future, but not for this year’s Oscars. “West Side Story” will be launched a year later than expected on December 10, 2021, instead of December 18, 2020.

Due to the interconnected nature of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the action of the “Black Widow” replaced other installments in the superhero franchise. The comic book adventure “Eternal”, a super-running alien race, debuts on November 5, 2021. It was previously dated February 12, 2021. The film is directed by Chloe Zhao, starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan and Kumail Nanjiani.

Nanjiani endorsed the move on Twitter, saying, “Marvel made the right and responsible decision.”

“Nothing is more important than health and life,” he wrote. “I can’t tell the BPL to go to the theater for a movie.

Marvel’s first Asian character, Shank C, has moved from May 7, 2021 to July 9, 2021. Testimonial Daniel Greton will direct an actor who includes Simu Liu as a martial arts hero.

Meanwhile, Adrian Lynn’s thriller “Deep Water” with Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas will no longer open on November 13, 2020. Instead it will debut on August 13, 2021.

The two images actually adore earlier in the table. A horror film with James Badge Dale “The Empty Man” 2020 will be released on October 23, 2020 instead of December 4th. “The King’s Man”, previously dated February 26, 2021, is two weeks from February 12 in advance. However, the latest entry of spy rights was launched earlier this month.

Several films have been postponed to 2021 following the release of Universal’s horror thriller “Candyman” and Gerard Butler’s “Denet”, including SDX’s devastating film “Greenland”. One reason studios are reluctant to release major films is that they have no idea when the two largest movie markets in the United States, New York and Los Angeles, will be able to open theaters. Cinemas in other parts of the country that have resumed operations are not seeing big business.

Nearly 70% of movie theaters in North America have reopened in recent weeks, with many reopening for the “Denet” release. Now, exhibitors face the potential of months without new content for visitors.
