Movie Release Delays and Closures
At the start of the pandemic many cinemas had to close, like other establishments, due to the mass spread of the virus. Due to this, many movies have decided to push back their release dates by some months. But, back in August theaters started reopening and the movie Tenet was able to be seen on the big screen. People were able to go to the cinema and watch a movie.
Due to the pandemic many movies have been pushed back to a later date. The anticipated Black Widow’s original release date was supposed to be May 1, 2020 but due to these circumstances, it was pushed back a year to May 7, 2021. Many other movies have been delayed as well, such as Wonder Woman 1984 which was primarily going to be released June 5, 2020 but was postponed to December 25, 2020, and Jurassic World: Dominion was supposed to come out June 11,, 2021 but was rescheduled a year later to June 10,, 2022.
The main movie that has caused Regal Cinemas to close its doors once again is the new James Bond film No Time to Die. The new Bond film was originally going to be released April 2020 but due to our current predicament it was pushed to April 2nd, 2021.
Cineworld, the parent company of Regal Cinemas, announced that it would temporally close its 663 theaters in the United States and Britain. The decision to close the theaters again is affecting 40,000 employees in the United States and 5,000 more in Britain. This closing has also affected movie fans and people who have spent a lot of their life visiting their local Regal theater.
Although more movies are still coming out this year, it is hard to say whether they will be delayed as well. Let’s hope we can soon return to normalcy, that way we can all soon head back to the theaters and watch some of the movies that we have been anticipating to watch.
