2020 Movie Releases - Updated Dates and New Trailers...

On the 2nd March, the founders of two superb 007 fan sites, MI6 Confidential and The James Bond Dossier, wrote an open letter (cleverly entitled “No Time For Indecision”) to EON, MGM and Universal.

“With the Coronavirus reaching pandemic status, it is time to put public health above marketing release schedules and the cost of cancelling publicity events.”

“Delay the release of 'No Time To Die' until the summer when experts expect the epidemics to have peaked and to be under control. It’s just a movie. The health and well-being of fans around the world, and their families, is more important.”

Two days later a seven month delay to the release of Bond 25 “No Time To Die” was announced. We took a deep (socially distanced) breathe.

Over the coming days, the scale of the global pandemic became clear and one-by-one studios announced delays to their 2020 blockbuster releases.

With the caveat that no one really knows what will happen over the coming months, here are the currently forecast release dates and the latest trailers for the best of those movies.

Time will tell how many of those dates will have to move again. We will keep you up to date.

 

Movie posters for many of these films actually made it to cinemas prior to the delays and are likely to be rarities in the future. You can see which ones we currently have available by searching our catalogue of 2020 movie posters.

 

Keep safe.
