Wonder Woman 1984 shelved in August
Really, even the heroes of the film must lower the arm in the COVID-19. After James Bond and Natasha Romanoffs, it is the turn of Wonder Woman to delay her appearance on the big screen. Warner has decided to push back the release of the second feature-length film centred on the Amazon from 5 June to 14 August.
The sums involved are huge and the theatres were closed almost everywhere in the world because of the pandemic, it is possible to understand the calculations in the course — Wonder Woman (2017) has made over a billion $ of revenue. Toby Emmerich, the president of the studio, not a hiding place : “We hope that the world will be a safer and healthy by then.”
Patty Jenkins, who was also director of the first feature-length film, abounded in the same sense in a message on Twitter, noting that she believes in the “power of the cinema on the big screen”.
Warner took the opportunity to announce thatIn the Heights, the adaptation of the musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda; Scoob, animated film based on the character of Scooby-Doo; and Malignant, of the master of horror James Wan, were pushed back to an undetermined date.
Several blockbusters spring are passed to the hatch lately. In addition to the 007 and black Widow, Mulan, Fast and dangerous 9 as well asA quiet corner 2 are in limbo.
The films of the summer remain on the calendar (for now) because everyone hopes that the worst of the crisis will be past. Only exception : The Minions 2 : once There was Gru. The animated feature will not be ready due to the closure of the production studio in France.
