Every movie delayed by coronavirus

With ‘you-know-what’ taking over the world right now, understandably the world of cinema has taken some heavy hits. From release dates being moved to as late as next year, to production being halted across films further down the line, there’s some big changes happening to release dates for some of the biggest movies that were on the 2020 calendar – and even beyond that.

We’ve taken note of all the notable titles that have been delayed because of coronavirus so far. We’ll be updating this article regularly with all the announcements as they come in, so you know what will and won’t be airing in your local cinema.

If you’re staying at home and are looking for some entertainment, then take a look at our lists of the best films on Netflix and the best movies on Amazon Prime.

Movies with no set release dates

As news is constantly changing, some production companies have delayed movies indefinitely for now. Perhaps when things begin to pick up again, these titles may get an updated release date, but we don’t expect this to be anytime soon.

The Truth – originally 20 March 2020
The New Mutants – originally 3 April 2020
The Lovebirds – originally 3 April 2020
Antlers – originally 17 April 2020
In The Heights – originally 26 June 2020
Greyhound – originally 6 December 2020
Untitled Sony/Marvel film – originally 8 October 2021
Movies with production delays

Though some movies had either far-off release dates or vague estimates, production delays will have a knock-on effect. Here’s a roundup of some of the major delays to movies currently in the filming processes:

The Matrix 4
Jurassic World: Dominion
The Little Mermaid
The Prom
Mission: Impossible 7
Blossoms
Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley biopic
Home Alone
The Last Duel
Nightmare Alley
Peter Pan & Wendy
Shrunk
The future of cinema during COVID-19

There are still a number of upcoming films that haven’t yet been given the cancellation card, but we’re fully expecting more announcements over the next few weeks and months.

There is a possibility that streaming services in general may be a substitute for the movie-going experience. We’re likely going to see a huge surge of streaming service accounts rise due to the number of people self-isolating and social distancing themselves.

NBCUniversal is the first film label to jump on this trend, announcing that Emma, The Hunt and The Invisible Man will all be available across a number of services for two days for a suggested rental price of $19.99 (and similar prices in other markets). Trolls World Tour will also be released online.

Seeing as cinemas are now closing across the country, this may be a trend we see continuing across the next few months.
