F#@K! Here we go again…

While the world continues to struggle with that damned virus, it looks like those of us excited for a few big movies this summer will have more disappointment coming.

MGM and Sony have both announced that the biggest releases on their 2021 line-up (formerly 2020) are pushed back yet again.

The new release dates are:

James Bond: No Time to Die – October 8th, 2021
Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway – June 11th, 2021
Cinderella – July 16th, 2021
Ghostbusters: Afterlife – November 11th, 2021
Uncharted – February 11th, 2022

Universal as also pushed back some of its releases:

Last Night In Soho – October 22nd, 2021
Nobody – April 2nd, 2021

We’re hearing Morbius has been pushed back too

Morbius – January 21th, 2022


A Quiet Place II – September 17th, 2021

20th Century Studios:

The King’s Man – August 20th, 2021

We’ll update this list as it grows (and it will).

Although, as Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscoreas said: “Given the uncertainty of the marketplace, a change of date is certainly better than a change of venue so to speak from big screen to small screen.”

He’s not wrong – I see a lot of people online calling for these movies to be released on Netflix or Amazon and I understand why, but we must remember that movies like these are, at the minute, the last hope for our cinemas and, personally, while I was living for Ghostbusters: Afterlife this summer, I’d rather have a night out with family and friends for a new Ghostbusters on the biggest screen possible, with maybe a nice coffee beforehand and a lovely meal afterwards to look forward to, than another night in the house.

It still sucks, though.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
