All Movies Suspended or Delayed Due to Coronavirus Pandemic, find out the new release date

With movie theatres closed amid the ongoing pandemic, our homes have been turned into a cinema in the time of coronavirus, with many films available on VOD or to stream earlier than expected.

But those are largely movies that had the unlucky timing of dropping right before social distancing descended upon the nation.

The films slated to arrive in theaters through March, April and May, however, are a different story, and so release dates have been officially postponed for Black WidowVenom: Let There Be Carnage and Wonder Woman 1984, as well as Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Pixar’s Soul and many, many more.
