At this rate, I don’t think any new films are going to be released theatrically as more and more titles keep getting more and more delayed.

Last week alone, Tenet from director Christopher Nolan and Disney’s live action adaptation of MULAN both moved away from July to August further implementing the fact that there will be no summer at the box office.

In another move, Paramount Pictures has delayed the big screen adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse starring Michael B. Jordan. The action-thriller was slated for an October 2nd release date but now won’t be delivered until February 26th of next year.

Without Remorse stars Jordan as the Tom Clancy character John Clark who is the head of an international counter-terrorism unit codenamed Rainbow Six. This film is supposed to spearhead a film franchise for Jordan and his character with the next film scheduled to be the adaptationist Clancy’s best selling novel also titled Rainbow Six.

Stefano Sollima, who recently helmed the sequel Sicario: Day of the Soldado, directed the film with Jordan also producing along with Akiva Goldsman, Josh Appelbaum and Corin Nemec.

Film companies are hesitating to release any new product as the COVID-19 pandemic is still a severe issue in North America. Theaters are set to start opening but will only have older releases to showcase for a while.

Hopefully, and I really do mean hopefully, things might start to return to somewhat normalcy later this year. Movies in production are slowly starting to commence filming again with restrictions so maybe 2021 will be a better year for films and for life in general.

Keep it locked and loaded right here for more developments as they happen!
