It’s….crazy out there right now. Between the NBA, MLB, NHL and MLS putting their seasons on hold along with many major convention events cancelling (CinemaCon has joined E3), now movie studios are starting to push their scheduled releases. We already knew about No Time To Die being pushed to November, but this morning brings a slew of other movies getting the same treatment:

  • The next Fast and Furious movie, F9, has been delayed all the way till next year and is set to hit on April 2, 2021.
  • A Quiet Place Part II, which was slated to hit theaters next week, has been pulled and doesn’t have a new date yet.
  • Paramount has also pulled the Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae romantic comedy, The Lovebirds, from it’s April 3rd slot and not given a new date.
  • Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway has been pushed back a few months and will now arrive on August 7, 2020.
  • Mulan will no longer hit at the end of the month. No new date given.
  • The New Mutants can’t catch a break and the film that was originally supposed to hit in 2018 (and next month) has been delayed. No new date given.
  • The spooky looking Antlers has also been delayed. No new date given.
  • As expected, Disney has now made the decision to delay Marvel’s Black Widow. Like their other recent delays, no new date has been set.
  • Liongate’s upcoming films, Antebellum, Run, and the upcoming Saw reboot, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, have all been pulled from the schedule. No new release date set.
  • Two films under the Searchlight banner, The Personal History of David Copperfield and The Woman in the Window have also been pulled with no release dates set.
  • Minions: The Rise of Gru has been pulled off the calendar by Universal. Considering it was a July release, this brings a lot of questions about what the rest of the Summer movie season is going to be like.
  • Warner Bros biggest Summer release, Wonder Woman has been hit with a delay. It will now arrive on August 14, 2020.
  • Warner Bros. have also delayed Scoob! and In the Heights, but haven’t set you release dates yet.

We will be updating this article with more delays and dates as they come in. In the meantime wash your hands, throw on some Netflix/Amazon Prime/Disney+ and stay calm.
