Multiple films for the upcoming summer season have been postponed for public safety, with others unconcerned with the potential of an increased outbreak. It was confirmed that Fast Nine and Black Window would see their initial launch dates in North America. Considering that 2020 is slated to be one of the most anticipated film seasons of recent memory, it’s unsurprising that studios like Universal and Disney are refusing to limit their releases. That’s why moviegoers can still expect Mulan, A Quiet Place Plat Two and Pixar’s Onward to be released this month.
The 1st film that’s willing to postpone their release date is No Time To Die, which is slated to be the final Daniel Craig “James Bond” movie. It was initially slated to be released this year, with the updated timeframe now indicating a delayed box office opening. Directors expressed that this decision had been made following the pandemic being seen worldwide, with the press tour having already being terminated before this announcement.
Considering this was slated to be one of the most popular films for the summer season, it’s prompted speculation that multiple other studios will be forced to terminate their films initial launch date. Subsequently, we could still see films like Mulan and Fast Nine be cancelled. Both movies will be popular with Asia Moviegoers; it’d be irresponsible for these studios not to postpone the box office release.
James Bond Cancelled

Their Chinese Tour and follow-up events around the nation were terminated. Rumours suggested it’d be released for the April 2020 box office, as initially announced. However, MGM Films have pulled back from this release date.
Considering that MGM has spent millions on the marketing campaign for this film, including a one-minute Super Bowl Television Advertisement, it’s shocking that this movie was the first to announce a delay. It could be a financial loss for MGM Films. No Time To Die was slated to be the highest-earning James Bond film yet. The popularity of this film could dwindle in the next several months. It should be noted that Mission Impossible Seven have cancelled their production throughout Italy, with this extending to multiple studios cancelling their appearances at large-scale conventions across the world.
