As if calling off exhibitions and other sports was not enough. Now, Hollywood is trying its best to curb the spread of new coronavirus as well. Disney’s live-action movie Mulan’s premiere will also face rescheduling. The news comes from Disney itself along with other production houses that are making the same decision. ‘The New Mutants’ by Marvel and 20th Century Studios and ‘Antlers’ by Searchlight will also push back their release. The three movies originally were going to come out on March 27, April 3 and April 17, respectively. According to Disney, the new release date is not yet decided but they are looking at potential dates.
Mulan Premiere Expecting To Gather US $90 M Delayed
The live-action Disney movie Mulan was the talk of the town recently, as its premiere inched closer. Unfortunately, like most exhibitions, sporting and gaming events Mulan premiere has also been called off. The global redating scenario is all in good faith to protect maximum people from contracting the new virus, which doesn’t have a vaccine yet. Disney was looking hopeful to get the maximum profits out from China especially after choosing local actress Liu Yifei to take on the lead role.
However, it is not just China that concerns the franchise, but the cinemas of Denmark, Norway, Greece, Italy, Poland, India, Lebanon, and Kuwait have also shut down. Most of the European countries like Sweden, Finland and others will most likely follow suit. Recently, Daniel Craig’s final bond film ‘No Time To Die’ pushed back its release date to the end of the year, now releasing on November 25 instead of April.
Apart from Mulan premiere other movies to reschedule their releases include ‘The Lovebirds’, ‘A Quiet Place Part II’, ‘Blue Story’ and ‘F9’. According to what Deadline tells, the movie by Disney comes as a last-minute decision. The new coronavirus has gripped the world in fear as famous personalities test positive. Recently, Tom Hanks and his wife, and the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife tested positive.
As the world tries to contain the spread of the currently-uncurable virus, Hollywood is trying its best to help out as well.
