With movie theaters closing all around the world and especially in China, it is no surprise that some of 2020's biggest movies are being postponed - which has had the domino effect of pushing next year's movies further down the calendar as well.. The New Mutants continues to struggle to see the light of the silver screen, while No Time to Die has only been pushed back to November 2020. Several other 2020 films won't come out in their originally scheduled year at all. Fast 9 was the first major title to secure a 2021 release date, and many others - including In the Heights, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and Jungle Cruise - followed suit.
Be sure to keep checking this list as it is updated throughout the year for new movie release dates - for both 2020 and beyond - so you can make plans to watch these hotly anticipated movies. Which of these films are you having a hard time waiting for?
Feel the need for speed all you want - you're still going to have to wait a bit longer for Tom Cruise's triumphant return to the role that made him a global alpha-male icon. Directed by his Oblivion collaborator Joseph Kosinski, Top Gun: Maverick picks up two-and-a-half decades after Tony Scott's original Top Gun and was originally slated for a big summer release. For fans itching to see what has become of Maverick since then, maybe now it will make for a great Memorial day outing.
