Barely a few hours Disney took Mulan off its release schedule, two more Hollywood blockbusters have their roll-outs pushed back to 2021 amid spikes in COVID-19 in the US and key foreign markets.
A Quiet Place Part II, the Emily Blunt-starring creature feature, will now open on Apr 23, 2021 instead of September 4. The launch of Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun, is shifted from December 23 to July 2, 2021. (Just in time for the original's 35th anniversary!)
A Quiet Place Part II and Top Gun: Maverick were originally slated to open in Singapore on September 3 and Dec 23, respectively. An updated schedule will be announced shortly.
Meanwhile, here are some of the major Hollywood releases to look out for in what's left of 2020: Scoob! (July 30), New Mutants (Aug 27), The Hunt (Sep 17), Wonder Woman: 1984 (Oct 1), Death on the Nile (Oct 8), Candyman (Oct 15), Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (Oct 15), Black Widow (Oct 29), Connected (Nov 5), Soul (Nov 19), Free Guy (Dec 10), Dune (Dec 17), and West Side Story (Dec 17).
