News from around the web

Director Patty Jenkins has moved the release date of Wonder Woman 1984 to August 14th 2020 because the best way to see the film is on the big screen.

Movie theatres across the world are currently closed because the the COVID-19 pandemic which means that many of the smaller establishments are suffering though no income.

In a heart felt tweet she reiterates how important movie theatres are and the move of release date is so it can help the movie theatre industry once the pandemic os over.

Many of the released for MArch and April have been put on hold or to a later date including A Quiet Place Part II, No Time To Die, Black Widow and Mulan to name a few.

There is no time line of when the social restrictions set by global governments will be lifted and when cinemas will be able to open again.

As a result of this the weekend box office results have also been suspended.

The film got bad reviews from critics and public alike and despite people not venturing out the house to movie theatre it is hard to say if the film would have done much better if they had.

The road ahead does not look good and with Universal and Warner both announcing today the recent box office films are hitting streaming on Friday this could join the list sooner rather than later.


The new Pixar film is also suffering from the fear of the coronavirus and the movie falls to number 2 this week with $17.3 Million from 48 countries.
