Now that we’re almost one month in to 2021, it is time for another batch of studio release dates to be adjusted due to the ongoing COVID situation. Although there weren’t many major titles scheduled for January and February, we’re starting to see those spring releases being forced to shift. Despite earlier rumours that it might head to Netflix or another streaming service, MGM is once again setting a new release date for No Time to Die, acknowledging that the world will not be ready for this global blockbuster by April. Sony is also moving out a handful of their big 2021 releases including Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Morbius, the latter of which had already been delayed but is now being forced to make way for Bond. The full list of new release dates is as follows:

  • No Time to Die – moves from 04/02/2020 to 10/08/2021
  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife – moves from 06/11/2021 to 11/11/2021
  • Uncharted – moves from 07/16/2021 to 02/11/2022
  • Last Night in Soho – moves from 04/23/2021 to 10/22/2021
  • Antlers – moves from TBD to 10/29/2021
  • Morbius – moves from 10/08/2021 to 01/21/2022
  • Cinderella – moves from 02/05/2021 to 07/16/2021
  • Peter Rabbit 2 – moves from 04/02/2021 to 06/11/2021
  • BIOS – moves from 11/13/2020 to 08/13/2021
  • Nobody – moves from 02/26/2021 to 04/04/2021

There is one movie that actually getting released sooner than expected, however, that being WB’s Godzilla vs. Kong which is now coming to theatres and HBO Max on March 26th instead of May 21st. Otherwise, it continues to be pretty bleak for movie theatres right now. The only major theatrical releases in the immediate future are also hitting digital platforms in some form including The Little Things, Judah and the Black Messiah, Tom and Jerry and Raya and the Last Dragon. The King’s Man is still currently scheduled for February 26th but seems likely to be the next studio film to announce a delay.
