All the movie releases that have been affected by the coronavirus

A Quiet Place Part II

This has been a long and crazy week and I’m sure you’re all exhausted by the constant coronavirus news. Given that there have been a lot of very serious updates this week, you may have had trouble keeping track of what film releases have been postponed as a result of cinema closures and restrictions on public gatherings, so I’ve put together a handy list to help.

No Time to Die 

The latest James Bond was the first film to push back its release – from 2 April until November. Now we have to wait even longer to see how Daniel Craig bows out.

A Quiet Place Part II 

This was a much more last-minute decision in comparison to Bond. Paramount and John Krasinski announced the decision to postpone next week’s release just yesterday. I was supposed to attend a press screening tonight! A new release date hasn’t yet been announced.

Mulan 

This is another last-minute decision. Disney announced this was being pushed from 27 March yesterday night, when the London premiere was taking place!! Crazy times. A new date hasn’t been revealed.

Fast and Furious 9 

Thursday was a big night for postponement announcements – the Fast and Furious team took a bold swing and pushed back its release by almost a year. From May 2020 to 2 April 2021! Shame I won’t get to see those ridiculous stunts in context anytime soon.

The New Mutants 

This film is doomed! This X-Men spin-off starring Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Charlie Heaton, has been postponed yet again. It has been delayed so many times since it was originally set for release in April 2018 (!!) and now it’s without a release date yet again.

Antlers 

This horror starring Keri Russell hasn’t received too much promo over here yet so this doesn’t feel like particularly sad news. It is another Disney delay without a new release date.

Peter Rabbit 2

This CGI/live-action sequel – which looks shocking tbh – was due to hit cinemas at the end of March, just in time for the school holidays, and now it’ll come out in August. If it’s all blown over by then.

Some smaller films are being hit too – racing drama Dream Horse is no longer being released on 17th April, Our Ladies has been delayed from April to September, and The Secret Garden has been moved from April to August.

I will be updating this as and when a new addition to the list comes along! Needless to say, my March preview is well and truly incorrect now and I probably won’t be seeing many new releases and publishing many reviews in the next month or so.
