The move to delay was not unexpected as cinemas in the US as well as key overseas markets (in China, Japan, South Korea and the UK) are ordered to close to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

These movies are the latest to be delayed by the escalating COVID-19 crisis. Other movies pulled by Hollywood studios include No Time to Die, A Quiet Place Part II’, and Fast and Furious 9 as well as Disney’s Mulan, The New Mutants, and Antlers.
