A report suggests that Hollywood studios are beginning to get nervous about their August cinematic releases, which could end up being pushed to September.
As the pandemic isn’t subsiding in the US as Hollywood had hoped, the planned launch of the summer blockbuster season in August is in jeopardy.
Films like Christopher Nolan’s Tenet and Disney’s Mulan have already been delayed multiple times but Deadline is reporting they could get pushed to September after an assessment in early July.
Deadline says: “I hear that after July 4, there will be another assessment by studios and the big circuits as to whether the current lineup of movies –Solstice Studios’ Unhinged, TriStar’s Broken Hearts Gallery, Warner Bros.’ Tenet and Disney’s Mulan– moves again as a block in another two week delay for each film as more COVID-19 data unveils itself. As such it would not come as a shocker if the current August release schedule slides into September.”
The surge of cases in the US has gotten studios nervous according to the report that things won’t open up in time for these films to be a success – or they might not even open at all.
We will have to wait and see how this develops. It sounds like we could have some further news in the next couple of weeks.
Armed with only one word – Tenet – and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real-time. Not time travel. Inversion.
Tenet sees Christopher Nolan directing a cast that includes John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.
