As theatres are slowly beginning to open in the United
States, it seems like Hollywood studios are still not ready to release their
much-anticipated movies on the big screen.

Speaking of which, Disney has announced the release dates of
its upcoming movies such as Scarlet Johansson’s “Black Widow,” Emma Stone’s
“Cruella,” “Shang-Chi: The legend of the Ten Rings,” Pixar’s “Luca,” and
several others.

Reportedly, Cruella and Black Widow are going to stream on
Disney Plus after running in theaters for a short while. “Cruella” is releasing
on the same day as scheduled i.e. on May 28th, while “Black Widow”
has been postponed for two months and slated to release on July 9, instead of 7th

Viewers will be able to access both the movies on Premier,
with additional charges of $30.

The delay in the release of Black Widow means that other
Marvel movies like “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” will be pushed
back to 13th September—they were originally planned to release in
early July. If things started getting better, the movies are expected to have a
usual theatrical release.

However, Pixar’s upcoming animated adventure “Luca” will not
have a theatrical release; instead, the movie will be dropped on Disney plus
for online streaming on 18th June. Don’t worry, Disney is not adding
additional fees for it.

Despite the huge turnout of subscribers on their streaming
platform (thanks to Marvel’s WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and
Loki), the studio has no plans to ditch cinemas entirely! Disney has delayed a
number of small-budgeted movies to release them later on the big screens.

Here is the list of movies expected to release in theatre
this summer:

Ryan Reynolds’ “Free Guy” is going to release in 13th

“The King’s Man” is scheduled to hit cinemas on 22nd

“Deep Water” is slated to release on 14th Jan,
2020 and “Death on the Nile” on 11th Feb, 2022.

The Chairman of Disney media and Entertainment distribution,
Kareem Daniel says that the decision “reflects our focus on providing consumer
choice and serving the evolving preferences of audiences.”

“By leveraging a flexible distribution strategy in a dynamic
marketplace that is beginning to recover from the global pandemic, we will
continue to employ the best options to deliver The Walt Disney Company’s
unparalleled storytelling to fans and families around the world,” he added.

At the beginning of the pandemic, Disney’s live-action
remake of “Mulan” skipped cinemas and released on Disney Plus with an
additional premium fee. It was the first movie that took the bold decision to
ditch theatres entirely and embrace digital streaming platforms.

As of now, the company hasn’t yet released the official
numbers of viewership on their streaming offerings, but Disney’s CEO, Bob
Chapek has suggested that the studio will continue to take risks with their
release plans as long as the worldwide theatre situation remains affected. The
decision comes days after the company believed to break record viewership with
the latest Marvel’s TV series “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” on Disney Plus.

Studio executives and filmmakers are optimistic with the
gradual opening of movie theaters in New York City and Los Angeles. However,
these theaters are operating with only 25% capacity, allowing only 100 people
per auditorium in L.A and 50 in New York. Limited capacity means less ticket
sales, which makes it difficult for big-budgeted movies to make big profits.

Still, entertainment-seekers are optimistic about having a
spectacular summer movie season. Even Disney and other studios are hoping that
entertainment-seekers will come out in huge numbers if theatres begin to
operate with full capacity. With this hope, Paramount has bumped up the release
date of “A Quite Place 2” from September to 28th May, along with
Universal, who has decided to release “F9” a month early on June 25.

So, are you excited for the movies? Because we are!

Just by the way, Ryan Reynolds released a video of himself
in which he announced the release date of “Free Guy” in a most hilarious way!
