The governor was said to have insisted on the closure of the theaters during last Fall, which led to the shifting of most of the end of the year scheduled movies (Black Widow, No Time to Die, Top Gun: Maverick) to 2021.
The 25% capacity may not be enough for big cinema movies but smaller films like Universal’s Nobody, now slated for April 2, to earn something comparable to what they would have in ideal circumstances.
With this news, movies like Disney’s Black Widow, Lionsgate’s Spiral and Universal’s F9 will be shown as scheduled in May. The Warner Bros. movies that are already on tap like Tom & Jerry, Godzilla Vs. Kong, and Mortal Kombat, won’t be affected as they were set in stone due to the HBO Max deal.
The cheering news will allow more folks to watch the like of Godzilla and Kong, while the aforementioned May releases as well as the June/July releases like Venom: Let There Be Carnage or Top Gun: Maverick, may actually stick around.
There is clearest sign that the 2021 summer movie season may soon happen, and that Bloodshot will not be the last movie you see in a theater.
