These Movies Are Delayed Due To The Coronavirus, Here’s When They Could Premiere

The coronavirus pandemic has been a particularly confusing time for movie fans, as movie theater closures around the globe have forced studios to constantly move around premiere dates and even release methods. Pretty much every new film that was slated to premiere in the summer of 2020 has had to majorly change its schedule. Some films have chosen to forgo theaters altogether and premiere on streaming services or on-demand, but most theatrical releases have simply been put on pause. Here are the movies that are delayed due to coronavirus, and the latest on when they are projected to finally premiere.

After the coronavirus outbreak was officially labelled a pandemic in the United States back in March, movie theaters across the country closed down in accordance with the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing. The unprecedented closures led to a few different release strategies for movie studios. Some movies that were supposed to premiere in theaters instead made the jump to streaming, like the Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani rom-com The Lovebirds and Disney’s live-action adaptations of Mulan and Artemis Fowl. For most of the big blockbusters, though, studios have opted to continually push back premiere dates in hopes that it will soon be safe to go to a movie theater once again.

Due to the uncertain times, these premiere dates tend to change pretty often, but here’s when movie fans can expect all of the delayed 2020 movies to finally premiere:
