No surprises here but after Warner Brothers announced the latest delay of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet to August 12th, Disney has also followed suit by pushing back Mulan by almost a full month. In addition, Bill & Ted Face the Music has slipped to the last weekend in August while a few other movies have also been shuffled as a result. As it stands right now, the only July theatrical release that has yet to move is Sony’s romantic comedy The Broken Hearts Gallery on July 17th. The full list of recent release date changes is as follows:
- Mulan – moves from July 24, 2020 to Aug. 21, 2020
- Bill & Ted Face the Music – moves from Aug. 14, 2020 to Aug. 28, 2020
- Unhinged – moves from July 10, 2020 to July 31, 2020
- Save Yourselves! – moves from July 24, 2020 to July 31, 2020
- Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse – moves from Oct. 2, 2020 to Feb. 26, 2021
It seems likely that Disney will also push back The New Mutants, which is currently scheduled to hit theatres on Aug. 28th, since it is now probably sitting a little too close to Mulan. Last week Paramount decided to pull The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run from its Aug. 7th release date and move it to VOD instead. Unfortunately for SpongeBob fans, that digital release won’t be happening until 2021. Meanwhile Regal and AMC are planning to start reopening their theatres across the U.S. on July 10th and 15th respectively, although it is unclear what movies will actually be playing there when they do. Hopefully you still have a few things left on your Netflix queue because it is shaping to be a pretty quiet summer in terms of new movie releases.
