Sony Shuffles Entire Summer Slate
Peter Rabbit 2, Morbius, and Ghostbusters: Afterlife all move to 2021
The coronavirus pandemic continues to cause chaos with the UK theatrical schedule, and now Sony has announced dramatic decisions on most of their major 2020 films. Peter Rabbit 2 was among the first films to be delayed due to COVID-19 and cinema closures and is now pushed back again as it shifts from its revised August release date to December 11. The Sony/Marvel superhero movie Morbius and Ghostbusters sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife are also affected as they both move from their July release dates and will now arrive in March 2021. Tom Hanks WWII drama Greyhound has also been dropped from its June release date, with no new release date confirmed. Most of Sony's films from September onwards remain unaffected as Monster Hunter, Our Ladies, and Connected are all sticking to their planned release dates. But much further down the line, production has been postponed on the adaptation of Uncharted reportedly starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, with a tentative release date in October 2021. One of the few films to benefit from the release date reshuffle is Kevin Hart drama Fatherhood which was initially set for January 2021 and will now arrive in December this year. It's certainly good news that these films are standing by theatrical releases and there's still plenty to see when cinemas reopen.
