Even though it has now become very common for a movie to delay, the news of Death on the Nile and Free Guy’s delay still hit the fans hard. Disney revealed that both the film are being postponed without going into the details.
Disney initially planned to release Death on the Nile on 18th December and Free Guy on 11th December. Now both the movies are delayed, and we are expecting them to release in 2021.
Theaters are struggling due to the pandemic, and now Wonder Woman 1984 is the only big title that is set to hit the screens on 25th December. There is still a possibility that a superhero movie starring Gal Gadot will also be moved back.
Big titles are off the charts, but smaller productions are still on schedule. The Croods: A New Age, Universal’s animated comedy, will release on 25th November. Promising Young Woman and Freaky are set to hit the screens on 25th December and 13th November, respectively.
Free Guy is a science-fiction action-comedy starring Ryan Reynolds with Shawn Levy in the director’s chair. In the video game “Free City,” Guy is a bank teller, he finds out that he is in a video game. He races against time to make himself the hero and save the game before the developers shut it down.
Death on the Nile is based on the novel written by Agatha Christie. Kenneth Branagh directs it, and the story starts to take place when a passenger is found murdered on S.S Karnak Cruise Ship. Detective Hercule Poirot is entrusted with the task of finding out the person who disrupted the peace in the cruise.
There are very few chances of us seeing Tom Hanks’ News of the World on the streaming services this December. Tom Hanks did say that Greyhound releasing on streaming services was saddening for him. Black widow and No Time To Die have also been pushed back and they are also in the league of delayed movies.
Even though some limited theatres are opened in some areas, it still is a big loss for the big-budget movies like No Time To Die with a production cost of $250 million. People are also hesitant to go to Cinema to protect themselves from COVID-19.
