The Coronavirus continues to affect businesses and establishments worldwide. Needless to say, Hollywood hasn’t been immune to the deadly disease either. In the latest big news from the big Cinema world, Gal Gadot’s big-budget “Wonder Woman 1984” has postponed its release date.
The latest installation of the DC Universe movie is now set for an August 14 release instead of the earlier scheduled date of June 5.
In a statement, Toby Emmerich – Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman – said: “When we greenlit ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14.

“We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”
ARE THERE ANY OTHER MOVIES THAT HAVE BEEN CANCELLED BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC?
Wonder Woman 1984 is not the only movie which has faced the hammer. ‘In The Heights’ – an adaptation of Lin-Manuel’s musical – which was to be released on June 26 has also been indefinitely pulled by the Warner Bros Studio.

Miranda took to Twitter to confirm the delay of his musical which is being led by ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ director Jon M Chu. It also stars ‘Hamilton’ actor Anthony Ramos. This is what he wrote on Twitter –
“We had the best summer of our lives filming #InTheHeightsMovie movie last year. We gathered in Washington Heights and told this story, on location in this neighbourhood, with our neighbours in this community.”
“We couldn’t wait to share it with you. But we’re going to have to wait a little longer. With the uncertainty in our world, right now, the release of In The Heights is being postponed.”
“When we can safely gather again, flags in hand, we will be there, enjoying this movie in theatres. We’ll have the premiere uptown”.
Scooby-Doo animated film ” Scoob” scheduled for a May 15 release and James Wan’s thriller “Malignant” scheduled for an August 14 release have also been axed for the time being.
