Disney “Mulan” and Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” has been delayed again ending all the hopes of Hollywood having a good film season this summer.
Disney “Mulan” remake was slated to debuted in theaters on July 24. Instead, “Mulan” will hit the big screen on Aug. 21. Whereas Tenet which was initially slated to arrive in theaters on July 17, but was later postponed until July 31. Now, it will be released on Aug. 12
Disney’s co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn is still confident of a cinematic releases and says “Director Niki Caro and our cast and crew have created a beautiful, epic, and moving film that is everything the cinematic experience should be, and that’s where we believe it belongs — on the world stage and the big screen for audiences around the globe to enjoy together.”
With “Tenet’s” vacancy from release calendars, “Mulan” was positioned to be the first major film to reignite moviegoing in US. While Nolan, a preeminent supporter of movie theaters, had planned to get audiences back to cinemas with “Tenet,” industry insiders suggest that Disney didn’t want “Mulan” to be the test case for new movies amid the pandemic.
Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement that “In this moment what we need to be is flexible, and we are not treating this as a traditional movie release. We are choosing to open the movie mid-week to allow audiences to discover the film in their own time, and we plan to play longer, over an extended play period far beyond the norm, to develop a very different yet successful release strategy.”
Russell Crowe’s thriller “Unhinged” from Solstice Studios is still unmoved from its earlier release date of July 10th but seeing the rising number of coronavirus cases in the US, we can expect the film to move to a further release date or it may opt to go for a digital platform like most of the low budget films have done this summer.
