Another major studio film is moving its release date due to coronavirus concerns. Fast and Furious 9 (also known as F9), originally set for release on May 22 of this year, will now be released April 2, 2021 in the U.S. and internationally in April 2021. This is the latest delay of a major studio film, with No Time To Die making the call to change its release a week ago and A Quiet Place Part 2 making the change just this morning. The creative team and studio released the following statement to the media and fans:

Vin Diesel had previously said they would not consider moving the release of the film due to coronavirus, telling USA Today that “we need movies now more than ever. We’re already in a very interesting time where cinema and the cinematic experience is so threatened. So, yes, put it on record we’re going to show up.” Fast 9 also stars John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron.
