Sorry, but you are not vamping out with Jared Leto or ghosts break with Paul Rudd this year. Sony Pictures just announced a big stir for the theatrical release schedule, bringing most of its biggest 2020 releases back to 2021.

The big ones, according to the headline, are Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which will now be released on March 5, 2021 (moved from July 10) and the Spider-Man spin-off Morbius starring Jared Leto, which will be released on March 19, 2021 (moved from July 31). Tom Holland’s Uncharted, who was about to film when Hollywood started closing, was moved from March 5, 2021 to October 8, 2021 and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway has been moved to January 15, 2021 from August 7. Look for the other movies to which this applies Variety.

A Untitled Marvel movie originally scheduled for October 8, 2021 has now been completely removed from the schedule. The release is TBD. Movies that Sony planned after August 7, such as Escape Room 2, Monster Hunter, Connected, and another untitled Marvel movie (which many expect to be Venom 2) they all stay on schedule.

With every movie delay in Hollywood, fans begin to see the unfathomableThe impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on every aspect of the world. First it was Movies in March, than May, now June, July and even August. It will be a very, very long time before everything returns to normal in a theater near you.

Correction: A previous version of this story had moved the “maybe Venom 2” October 2020 movie from the schedule to TBD. We’ve confused it with a second self-titled Marvel movie coming in October, but from 2021. That’s why movies need titles. It is solved above.
