Bad news, since according to a report there will be no major film releases until 2021 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Theaters could be closed in the United States until next year, and this will mean that the big film releases will be delayed more and more until they reach 2021. Since the global situation due to the Coronavirus is worse than we want to admit, because every time there are many sprouts that prevent people from enjoying leisure as before.
Doug Creutz of Cowen, has shared a new perspective for the future of cinemas, explaining that, “we had previously assumed that the spread of COVID-19 would stop relatively, with the social distancing requirements significantly decreased in late 2020. We have now extended that time frame to at least mid-2021. The situation is still very fluid and we do not rule out the possibility that the impact could last even longer, this would affect theatrical releases. "
In short, he believes that many theaters will not be able to reopen until the middle of next year, and goes on to say that he does not anticipate any movie premiere in "fiscal year 2020" (for Disney, that ends in September). "We now expect national cinemas to be largely closed until mid-2021, in part because we don't think the studios are interested in releasing their largest films in limited-capacity theaters," adds Doug Creutz.
Will Tenet, Wonder Woman 1984 or Mulan be delayed to 2021?
Since the global pandemic caused by the Cornoavirus began, many movie releases have been delaying their dates, but it seemed that films such asTenet, Mulan or Wonder Woman 1984. Although reality is beginning to collide with these intentions. Since the United States is suffering a brutal wave of contagions and in Europe the situation begins to get out of control again. Therefore, it is very difficult to know what the big film studios will do, since for example it is estimated that Tenet needs a collection of 800 million dollars to be profitable. With half-empty rooms, either because of security measures or because people are afraid to attend, large movie premieres are not feasible.
