Over the last couple of days we’ve seen a number of films delayed either indefinitely or until 2021. Additionally, there have been numerous films in development or post-production that have received release dates. Let’s take a look at what we can expect over the next couple of years.
First up, Tenet, director Christopher Nolan‘s latest pic for Warner Bros., has been delayed indefinitely. It was originally scheduled to open last weekend but was then delayed first to July 31 and then to August 12. It is unknown when the film might open now, but there have been whispers about a September release or opening the picture internationally before a domestic release.
In a statement, Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich said:
“We will share a new 2020 release date imminently for Tenet, Christopher Nolan’s wholly original and mind-blowing feature. We are not treating Tenet like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that.”
Following in the footsteps of Tenet, Sony‘s The Broken Hearts Gallery has been delayed indefinitely as well. Surprisingly, Mulan hasn’t been delayed yet so don’t count August out just yet, everyone!
Oh, WB also pushed The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It back to June 4, 2021. It was originally set to hit theaters this September, but was delayed by additional reshoots that could not happen due to the pandemic.
In some good news, Skydance Animation announced the official release dates for their first two animated films, which will be co-financed and distributed by Paramount Pictures. Luck will hit theaters February 18, 2022, and Spellbound will follow on November 11, 2022. Luck, directed by Peggy Holmes, follows “the unluckiest girl alive as she stumbles upon the never-before-seen world of good and bad luck. Teamed up with some magical creatures, she’ll uncover a force more powerful than even luck itself.” Meanwhile, Spellbound is “set in a world of magic where a young girl must break the spell that has split her kingdom in two.” That film also has a handful of Disney and DreamWorks veterans like director Vicky Jensen, producer David Lipman, writers Lauren Hynek & Elizabeth Martin and Linda Woolverton, as well as Oscar-winning songwriter Alan Menken.
Finally, Netflix has announced the release date for its adaptation of the Southern Gothic novel The Devil All the Time. The Antonio Campos-directed feature is set to hit the streaming service on September 16, 2020. It features a star-studded cast that includes Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgard, Riley Keough, Jason Clarke, Sebastian Stan, Robert Pattinson, Haley Bennett, Mia Wasikowska, Eliza Scanlen, Harry Melling, and Pokey LaFarge.
I’m definitely interested in checking out The Devil All the Time later this year! What about you? What upcoming films are you excited to see? Tell us down in the comments!
