Update, January 21: Hours after MGM moved No time to die on October 8, Sony is now launching its Marvel movie Morbius until January 21, 2022, the weekend after MLK. Sony will have access to all Imax screens for Morbius. The film remains the only major release dated from its respective weekend.
Nevertheless, if Dune leaves the first weekend of October, it wouldn’t be shocking to see No time to die move to that date. Stay tuned.
Previous, January 11: Sony Morbius, with Jared Leto, was set back seven months, from March 19 to October 8.
As Covid-19 cases rage as we wait for a calmer administration to set foot in Washington and deal with the country’s health crisis, many expect the first quarter theatrical releases of this year move. Morbius moves to a release date currently occupied by United Artists Releasing The A’s animated sequelddams family 2.
This is a major Marvel film for Sony, and the studio is protecting it rather than sending the photo to PVOD.
In Morbius, Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disorder, but inadvertently becomes infected with some form of vampirism instead.
Daniel Espinosa is directing a screenplay by Matt Sazama and Buck Sharpless.
There are no more full-scale releases on March 19, only IFC’s The last call and ICOC My brother’s keeper according to the most recent Comscore calendar.
