We are so close to Diana Prince’s appearance in her remake movie, ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, but the situation has demanded measures to be taken. From June 5, the Wonder Woman remake has been moved back to August 14. Other movies, unfortunately, ended up with a bleak future. ‘In The Heights’ that was based on Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical play has been postponed indefinitely.
‘Scoob’, a spin-off animation based on the series ‘Scooby-Doo!’ was also scheduled for a release on May 15, but it has been pulled back without a future date. And ‘Malignant’ was replaced by ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, putting it at a position without a date as well.
Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman has made his statement, “When we greenlit ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14.”
Warner Bros. was forced to take the steps with multiple theaters around the world and in the US closing down temporarily to avoid huge gatherings. Meanwhile, the business has begun to return to the market in China where the pandemic is finally under control.
The Covid-19 crisis has caused the entertainment industry, particularly Hollywood, to postpone their projects. At least, hundreds of thousands of gig workers are left unemployed as a drastic measure to exert social distancing. A number of projects may also be at risk to be cancelled due to the lost momentum.
