Following the trend of many of this year’s movies, two more highly anticipated films have delayed their release dates. MGM’s new bond flick No Time to Die was set to hit theaters next month, but given the current pandemic situation, it will not be emerging until April 2, 2021.
Unfortunately, the Easter weekend date is the date that the next Fast and the Furious installment, F9, was originally delayed to, and given that both films are being released via Universal, the double up on the release date has lead to another delay in F9’s release date. The film is now set to be released on May 28, 2021, which is Memorial Day weekend, and the date set to release Disney’s live-action Cruella and Paramount’s Mark Wahlberg movie Infinite.
Although we may be disappointed in the delay, we, along with movie theaters everywhere, are excited to hear that both movies are ultimately still heading for theatrical releases, unlike movies that opted to go straight to streaming platforms.
