Sony Delays 'Ghostbusters', 'Morbius' & More Upcoming Movie Release Dates.

Sony announces they are delaying all summer 2020 movie releases until 2021, including high profile releases like Morbius and Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which has shifted from July 10, 2020 to March 5, 2021; Uncharted, which moves from March 5, 2021 to October 8, 2021; and Sony's next Marvel headliner Morbius, which moves from July 31, 2020 to March 19, 2021.

The Tom Hanks war movie Greyhound, which was previously set to hit theaters on June 12, 2020, and an Untitled Sony Marvel movie previously set for October 8, 2021 have been undated.

Sony's moves also underscore that studios are not expecting theaters to be open again until mid-summer, at the earliest. Warner Bros. is postponing "Wonder Woman 1984" to Aug. 14 instead of June 5. The studio also indefinitely pulled "In the Heights" - an adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical that was due out June 26 - as well as "Scoob", an animated film based on "Scooby-Doo" characters that had been set for May 15.

The impact of the pandemic stemming from the coronavirus, COVID-19, is being felt the world over, and the entertainment industry is just one of many businesses that's trying to adapt. To help slow the spread of the virus, world governments are ordering non-essential businesses closed (like movie theaters) and encouraging their citizens to keep their distance from one another.
