The cinema curse will not end in 2021 either. While quite a few films were announced last year, the blockbusters are now gradually moving further into the year, or into the safe realms of 2022.

James Bond: No Time to Die, Uncharted, Morbius or King's Man: The Beginning – the release dates of a number of long-awaited films have been pushed back, and they probably won't be the only ones. In addition, we should be careful with all new maybe dates that are scheduled to take place in 2021 – this will most likely depend on the reopening of the cinemas.

All films that have been postponed so far – and for when

It's a simple calculation: as long as the cinemas have to remain closed, we will probably not be allowed to see these films – and many others – yet. The question remains, when exactly the starting shot for the cinemas is fired again. In the meantime, you should also view the new release dates with a little skepticism.

Films that are expected to appear in 2021

You won't be able to see that until October 2021 at the earliest:

Apart from streaming releases like Cherry (also with Tom Holland), which is due to be released on February 26th, we can expect that further films will be pushed back by further release dates. And probably until the end of 2021 at the earliest.
