Goodbye for now.
The number of people cancelling their flights and hotel reservation are growing at a rapid pace as the number of people infected by the virus continue to grow amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.
Besides the tourism industry, another industry has also been greatly impacted by the pandemic – entertainment.
The number of production houses cancelling or pushing back their movie premiere dates are rising as we speak.
So, it may take a little longer for you to catch your favourite upcoming film on the silver screen.
Here are all the movies that have been postponed so far due to the Coronavirus pandemic:
#1 ‘No Time To Die’
James Bond literally has ‘No Time To Die’ during the outbreak as the production house was the first to make the bold decision to push back the premiere of its film to November. Prior to postponement, they’ve taken the move to cancel all of their press tours in China.
Cast: Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux
New date: 25 November 2020
#2 ‘Fast & Furious 9’
It looks like fans would have to wait for another year until we find out what actually happened to Han. Did he rise from the dead? Or is he Han’s secret twin? Let’s all just keep guessing until the never-ending saga of ‘Fast Furious’ returns next year.

#3 ‘A Quiet Place 2’
We’re actually literally days away until the premiere of the highly anticipated film ‘A Quiet Place 2’. However, its director John Krasinski just shared the news that “due to the ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us”, now’s not the right time to release the movie. Guess the film will has to stay quieter until they announce a new date.

Looks like we won’t know how Mulan will bring honour to her family anytime soon. Just like ‘A Quiet Place 2’, the live-action film remake was scheduled to premiere at the end of March but the Mouse House decided to pull the plug despite the cast ‘s attendance at the UK premiere recently. Well, this news is definitely a dishonour! Dishonour on you, COVID-19!
