Welcome to the new normal: Movie studios are still scrambling to shift large chunks of their film releases in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and cinema closures. (Or, now in some states and other parts of the world, gradual cinema reopenings. Thanks, Tenet!) China made the decision to shut down movie theaters as far back as January 2020 in an effort to contain the virus, and prominent production companies have also closed down indefinitely. While many smaller films that had day-and-date theatrical and on-demand debuts have proceeded with the digital parts of those releases, tentpole movies out of Marvel and The Fast saga, to name just a few, have been reshuffled and moved countless times to 2021, 2022, or are being delayed indefinitely. No Time to Die, Avatar 2, and West Side Story are also dancing to new dates, and Disney has relegated three of its films to streaming debuts. With all that in mind, here’s a guide to the movies that have been delayed so far because of COVID-19, with new release dates listed where available.
