With many of 2020’s biggest films suffering setbacks, the summer movie calendar is in a state of uncertainty. Films such as “Mulan,” “A Quiet Place Part II,” “Scoob,” and “Black Widow” are delayed indefinitely, and Warner Bros. recently decided to shift the release date of “Wonder Woman 1984” from Jun. 5 to Aug. 14. Now, the 2020 calendar is about to undergo another shakeup as Sony is making some significant changes to its release schedule.

According to Variety, Sony Pictures has pushed back the release dates of many of its biggest releases, including “Morbius,” “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” “Peter Rabbit 2,” and even “Uncharted” due to the coronavirus outbreak. Almost all of the studio’s major 2020 releases will be pushed back to 2021. Jared Leto’s Marvel movie “Morbius” will move from Jul. 31, 2020, to Mar. 19, 2021; Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters sequel “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” will move from Jul. 10, 2020, to Mar. 5, 2021; “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, ” will move from Aug. 7, 2020, to Jan. 15, 2021; and the highly anticipated video game adaptation “Uncharted” will move from Mar. 5, 2021, to Oct. 8, 2021.

Sony has also delayed Tom Hanks’ long-troubled WWII action drama “Greyhound” indefinitely and, surprisingly, Kevin Hart’s latest film “Fatherhood” was moved up from its Jan. 15, 2021 release date to Oct. 23, 2020.

Sony’s updated release schedule can be found below.

“Greyhound” (Columbia Pictures) – TBD (from 6/12/2020)
“Fatherhood” (Columbia Pictures) – 10/23/2020 (from 1/15/2021)
“Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” (Columbia Pictures) – 1/15/2021 (from 08/07/2020)
“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” (Columbia Pictures) – 03/05/2021 (from 07/10/2020)
“Sony/Marvel Morbius” (Columbia Pictures) – 03/19/2021 (from 07/31/2020)
“Uncharted” (Columbia Pictures) – 10/8/2021 (from 03/05/2021)
Untitled Sony Marvel (Columbia Pictures) – TBD (from 10/08/2021)

The report states that Sony’s recent moves are the most significant made by a studio thus far amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Universal is the only other studio to have delayed one of their 2020 blockbusters until 2021 with “F9.”

While films such as “Top Gun: Maverick” and Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” are still holding on to their summer release dates, most of the major studios have vacated the season. Only time will tell whether or not the summer movie season is abandoned altogether.

What do you all make of Sony’s schedule change? Do you think “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Tenet” are the next movies to get delayed? Let us know in the comments below!
