As expected, Disney has pushed back some more movie releases from its May schedule as cinema chains announce closures and realisation that the Coronavirus problem won’t be over in just a few weeks, with AMC saying it could be closing theatres for 12 weeks.
Marvel’s Black Widow is the biggest title to be pushed back to an undetermined future date. Other movies pushed back include Searchlight Pictures’ The Personal History of David Copperfield and 20th Century Studios’ Woman in the Window.
Disney has already pushed back Mulan, New Mutants and Antlers from April’s schedule. And more titles could be delayed, including Disney’s Artemis Fowl and Pixar’s Soul, which are due to be released in late May and June.
With the cinema release of Black Widow, being pushed back it will ultimately impact when the film will be available on Disney+.
Universal and Warner Brothers are trialling Premium rentals of new movies, including Trolls – World Tour and Birds of Prey. It’s unknown if Disney will be doing the same for its titles.
