    Default "Mulan", "New Mutants" Releases Delayed Due To Coronavirus

    Taken from Variety:

    Disney has postponed the theatrical release of “Mulan” amid growing concerns over coronavirus. The live-action remake — starring Liu Yifei and directed by Niki Caro — was slated to debut in North American theaters on March 27. “Mulan’s” international release had already been delayed in some parts of the world, including China, due to the virus outbreak.

    The studio has also removed “The New Mutants” and “Antlers” from its slate. All three movies have been delayed indefinitely as Disney looks for new release dates.

    “The New Mutants,” the beleaguered superhero adventure from Fox, was scheduled for April 3. “Antlers,” a sci-fi horror film produced by Guillermo del Toro, was expected to hit theaters April 17 via Searchlight.

    For now, Disney’s “Black Widow” is still expected to hit theaters on May 1. Since so many big movies are vacating their release dates, Universal’s “Trolls World Tour” is the only film from a major Hollywood studio that’s still opening until May. But that could change if movie theaters are forced to close.

    "Mulan” is the latest high-profile tentpole to shift its theatrical debut as Hollywood grapples with the novel virus that’s rapidly spread across the world. On Thursday, Universal pushed “Fast 9” back a year, while Paramount indefinitely shelved “A Quiet Place 2.” Earlier this month, James Bond entry “No Time to Die” was delayed from April until November.

    Disney spent $200 million to produce “Mulan,” a large sum of money that doesn’t include marketing fees. Given how familiar the animated version is to global audiences, the new version of “Mulan” was made to resonate with moviegoers around the world. But since theaters are still closed in China (where its release date was also in limbo), the studio was concerned about recouping its budget.

    “The New Mutants,” starring Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, also carries a hefty price tag. This is its fifth big-screen delay since it was originally intended to release in 2018.

    Given the amount of would-be blockbusters that have already been pulled from multiplexes, it seems inevitable that North American movie theater chains will eventually shutter. But for now, cineplexes in the U.S. and Canada remain open. Theaters have seen mass closures in South Korea, Japan, Italy and other areas heavily impacted by coronavirus outbreaks.

    I hadn't heard that yet, but it makes sense. No point releasing a movie no one should be out seeing.
