Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, movie theaters had been shut down and scheduled releases had been pushed back. One of first slated releases with theaters opening was supposed to be Christopher Nolan’s Tenet was slated to arrive in theaters on July 17, it has now been moved to July 30, per Variety. Two weeks later, the consolation for that will be the re-release of Nolan’s classic, Inception, for it’s 10-year-anniversary.
Another highly anticipated movie making a move is Wonder Woman 1984. Originally pushed back to a late summer release, now will be pushed into the fall. Wonder Woman 1984 moves from August 14 to October 2nd.
Looks like the first two movies to hit theaters will be Russell Crowe’s thriller Unhinged from Solstice Studios and Sony’s romance drama The Broken Hearts Gallery both releasing in theaters on July 10.
We must remain patient and take all this information in stride and allow wiggle room for change. The pandemic is affecting everyone, so nobody has answers, they are just doing their best to try to forecast and accommodate tentatively. I’ll be happy if we get any movies in theaters this year, that will signal progress in our society.
What do you think of these changes? Are they good or unnecessary? Feel free to comment with your takes!
