The effects of the coronavirus can be felt around the world and in almost every area of our everyday lives. Hollywood, of course, is no exception. Almost all upcoming movie premieres and filming have been canceled or postponed due to the threat posed by the pandemic. The number of top films affected by the coronavirus is growing every day and these new dates are also subject to change. In order to keep track of the upcoming top films and their modified premieres, we have compiled this list for you.
All the top films of this year are experiencing changes
James Bond 007: No time to die
The 25th installment of the James Bond franchise is considered one of the first and most important films of the year to have its release date pushed back due to COVID-19. Its original date in early April has now been pushed back by seven months to November 25th.
Top Gun: Maverick
The second Top Gun was among the last top films hoping for a summer 2022 release date. In early April, the studio finally gave up on its original plans and chose to host Tom Cruise's return as Lt. Postpone Pete "Maverick" Mitchell to December 23rd.
Sony Pictures was scheduled to premiere the long-awaited third installment of the original Ghostbusters franchise in July. At the end of March, however, Hollywood decided to postpone the top film to March 5, 2021.
Wonder Woman 1984
The Warner Bros. Pictures film company waited until March 24 before finally pulling the plug on the original release date for the Wonder Woman sequel. The studio is currently planning a new, ambitious date, which is August 14th. Hopefully the pandemic will be long over by that point.
Jared Leto's debut as the living vampire Morbius will come almost a year later than originally expected. Sony Pictures hit that Decision to cancel the film's July premiere and reschedule it for March 19, 2022.
Minions 2: The Rise Of Gru
In the beginning nobody expected that all summer films would be affected by the pandemic. But this is no longer the case. The Despicable Me spin-off is scheduled to stop hitting theaters in July. Universal Pictures has set a new release date, which is July 2nd, 2022.
The long-awaited solo debut of the Marvel spy has unfortunately been added to the list of top films affected by the coronavirus. Originally scheduled for May 1st, the film's new release date is now November 6th.
All Avatar Sequels
Production of all four Avatar sequels was h alted shortly before filming began in New Zealand. The films should have been shot back-to-back there and in the US. The first film will now hopefully be seen in cinemas on December 17, 2022.
In mid-March, Sony Pictures paused filming in Berlin for the adaptation of the famous video game. A few weeks later, the studio made the decision to move the original March 2022 release date to October 8, 2022. At least now fans have a little more time to play all the Uncharted games.
The Matrix 4
The forthcoming fourth installment of the Matrix franchise was due to begin its final phase of filming in Berlin in March, but production has now been indefinitely h alted. The highly anticipated Keanu Reeves film is currently slated to hit theaters on May 21, 2022.
Mission: Impossible 7
The next installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise h alted production at the end of February, temporarily h alting filming in Italy. The film is now supposed to be released on July 23, 2022.
Jurassic World: Dominion
Shooting for the third film in the Jurassic World film series began on February 24th, but had to be h alted by Universal Pictures a few weeks later. The release date of the next sci-fi dinosaur movie has now been pushed back to June 11, 2022.
A Quiet Place Part II
The premiere of the sequel to the Horror Alien 2022's Trillers was originally scheduled to take place on March 20th. The release date has now been pushed back to September 4, 2022 due to the pandemic.
Disney recently had to cancel the original March 27 release date of its Live Action Remake. The studio is now hoping to push back the premiere of the long-awaited adventure film to July 24th. Hopefully by then we won't have to worry about COVID-19 anymore.
The premieres of numerous top films should have taken place in the coming months, but currently remain in question. Everything now depends on the status of the global coronavirus pandemic. There's also a lot of speculation that we'll be able to watch some blockbusters from home, either through Netflix or Disney Plus.
