Given the fact that we’re living through like the twentieth month of 2020 in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the movie release schedule is looking pretty sparse. The March, April, and May releases have shifted. Now it’s time for June to join in.
Wonder Woman 1984, which was scheduled for release on June 5, has officially been postponed until August 14. This is the latest move on the WB schedule as everyone scrambles to keep people home in the midst of the pandemic.
Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement, “When we greenlit WW 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 theaters on August 14th. We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”
Some studios are releasing their films on VOD, but others are withholding until a time when people can go back to movie theatres. Still, it’s for the best of the public health and hopefully things will be less…apocalypse like by then.
Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on Aug. 14.
