It’s the second half of 2020, the coronavirus pandemic is still raging across the world, and the most anticipated movies of the year are getting their theatrical releases delayed right and left for the health of moviegoers everywhere.
With theater chains like AMC and Regal delaying the reopening of their movie theaters along with studios delaying their film releases, many fear that the pandemic will render movie theaters extinct, forcing people to watch and stream new releases from the comfort of their home forever.
Don’t worry, movie theaters will come back to life by the end of the year, if not the beginning of 2021, along with a handful of the following movies that were initially slated for release 2020 but had to be pushed back.
Here are the 12 big 2020 movie delays and when they’re coming out.
The most anticipated spy thriller by Christopher Nolan about a man on a mission to prevent World War III, Tenet was originally scheduled to be released in IMAX theaters on July 17, but Warner Bros. shuffled its release date around three times, first by scheduling it for July 31 and then on Aug. 12, which coincided with the 10th anniversary screening of Inception.
Eventually, Warner Bros. arranged for Tenet to be released on Aug. 26 in 70 countries, including the United Kingdom, France, Japan, Italy, Germany, Australia and South Korea — countries where the coronavirus is more or less completely contained — and Sep. 3 in the United States.
