Due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, many of Sony’s movies including Peter Rabbit 2, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Uncharted and Morbius set to come out during the summer of this year have been moved back to 2021.
Variety has reported that Jared Leto’s Morbius has been pushed back from July 31, 2020 to March 19, 2021, along with Ghostbusters: Afterlife being moved from July 10, 2020 to March 5, 2021, video game adaptation Uncharted starring Tom Holland being moved from March 5, 2021 to October 8, 2021 and Peter Rabbit 2 being moved from August 7, 2020 to January 15, 2021.
Almost all major Sony films have been delayed for this year, except for Fatherhood starring comedian Kevin Hart, which moved from January 15, 2021 to October 23, 2020. Tom Hanks’ WWII drama film Greyhound has now been delayed indefinitely. Finally, an untitled movie from Sony and Marvel has also been delayed – from October 8, 2021 and now no longer has a date.
These movies have built up anticipation for many viewers, especially Morbius and Ghostbusters: Afterlife so it’s quite a shame for them to be delayed. Hopefully, it will still bring just as much excitement to fans when they come out in 2021.
