Why was the cinema started

Cinema is on hold: these films have been postponed - again

At the end of 2020 we still had the faint hope that everything would be better in the new year. So far, however, the prospects have been rather bleak - this also applies to the current cinema year. 2021 had barely started when the first films were postponed again. While some cinema productions should still appear this year, others will not start until 2022. And the cinema releases have even been canceled entirely for two films.

Canceled: These theatrical releases have been canceled

For two films, those responsible have even completely canceled the start dates (see below). At least in the case of “Antler’s” there is a rumor that the horror film is about to premiere in streaming instead. While there are rumors in the US about a release on Hulu, the strip could appear in this country on Disney Plus. The provider also wants to offer an area for adult films in the future.

  • Antler’s (old start date: February 18, 2021)
  • Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (old start date: February 25, 2021)

Films postponed: Unsafe release dates

Since it can be assumed that the corona pandemic could keep us busy for a little longer this year, further theatrical releases are “in danger”. It is believed that the Marvel film "Black Widow" will not keep its planned release in May 2021 and will be postponed again. Variety reports that in addition to the MCU adventure, Godzilla vs. Kong, Free Guy and Cruella could also be affected if the situation does not improve in the near future.

Films that are supposed to be shown in the cinema are being postponed again - or they appear directly on a streaming service. How do you feel about the ongoing cinema crisis? Let us know in a comment.
