Warner Bros – The coronavirus pandemic have brought drastic changes and far-fetched adjustments in our lives. And true enough, our daily routines were changed and several restrictions and protocols should be curtailed as we fight against the deadly threat of the virus.
Hence, other controversies had sparked and injustices prevail in the US as of the moment. The untimely and inhumane death of George Floyd have erupted protests nationwide. Moreover, political divisiveness and feud are prominent leading the American people restless. Business, education, health as well as the entertainment industry had to make adjustments and chose to focus in the pressing issues.
In the Film Industry, hundreds of movie projects were postponed, and movie premieres were moved due to the lockdown procedures and social distancing rules in establishments. Still, there are plenty of movie projects were cancelled and temporarily stopped filming. Big movies such as Mulan, A Quiet Place and others had postponed their movie premiere consequently. With this notion, moviegoers have to wait for few months for the movies to be released officially. Too much for bad news, eh?
The highly anticipated heroine of the DC Comics stirred up excitement with its breathtaking trailers yet just like other films, it has to be postponed as well Wonder Woman 1984.
With the amount of relentless anticipation that everybody is feeling for a good film to ease the boredom in our homes, the delayed movie release might stress out us more (or at least will leave us upset), along comes drastic changes and decisions of the Film Industry.
However, with Warner Bros. shifting Tenet to two weeks later in July, the studio has now made their official announcement to adjust the movie release schedules for many of its other movies that were able to finish the pandemic takes its toll and unfinished movie projects, including Wonder Woman 1984 and the next Matrix film.
The highly-acclaimed sequel of Wonder Woman, which had undergone certain drastic changes, shifted from June to August respectively, is now moving to 2nd of October this year. Yes, we cannot contain anymore our excitement and it just means we’ll have to wait that much longer to see Gal Gadot’s return as Diana Prince of Amazon.
Moviegoers are disappointed as well as the film industry but we cannot do anything about it right now, aren’t we? It’s better to wait to be safe.
Also same case goes with the fourth Matrix film, which had originally been set to arrive on 21 May 2021 is, because of pandemic-related production delays, now dated for 1 April 2022.
Things get worst and there’s bad news for those who were expecting Godzilla Vs. Kong this November – the monster mash-up is taking over the vacated Matrix spot next May, where it’ll face off (assuming no changes) against Saw reboot Spiral. With the large loopholes to be fixed this year, movie seems will be off this year and how saddening is that?
Also, Robert Zemeckis’ adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches has lost its October spot this year and is awaiting a new date at some point in 2021. The live-action/CG Tom & Jerry film, meanwhile, will shift from this December to 5 March next year.
Although other films have not released their official movie release yet, fans obviously know that it will take next year or more to have a glimpse of movie scenes.
The paradigm shift of the movies is so saddening for us, moviegoers but hey, at least it will be released few months from now so no fret. What movie are you excited to watch? Let us know.
