With movie theaters closed across the world, movie studios are having to take drastic steps to save their productions. Sony Pictures has now shown itself to be one of the most aggressive in making changes.
On Monday night, Sony Pictures announced that almost all of its films slated for 2020 are now moving to 2021. Here is the updated schedule.
- Greyhound (Columbia Pictures) – TBD (previously 6/12/2020)
- Fatherhood (Columbia Pictures) – 10/23/2020 (previously 1/15/2021)
- Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (Columbia Pictures) – 1/15/2021 (previously 08/07/2020)
- Ghostbusters: Afterlife (Columbia Pictures) – 03/05/2021 (previously 07/10/2020)
- Sony/Marvel Morbius (Columbia Pictures) – 03/19/2021 (previously 07/31/2020)
- Uncharted (Columbia Pictures) – 10/8/2021 (previously 03/05/2021)
- Untitled Sony Marvel (Columbia Pictures) – TBD (previously 10/08/2021)
Notably missing from this list is Venom 2 which is making us suspect that it is currently keeping its Oct. release date.
Beyond movies currently missing their release dates, all movies have shut down production. This could cause a large gap in releases next year as well. By shoving its films back, Sony is curing two issues with one solution.
Expect to see a lot more announcements similar to this depending on how long theaters and film production remain shut down.
