Oh, fer fu… Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Morbius and more pushed back until 2021

April 1st, 2020 by Marc Comments

Well, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t know this was coming because, well, I did, but it still really stings.

With that damned virus creating havoc across the globe, I was holding Ghostbusters: Afterlife as my lifeline… my beacon of hope; my ‘the world is back to normal!’ movie. But, alas, it wasn’t to be.

Sony has announced that Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be pushed back from July 10th, 2020, to March 5th, 2021. Joining it is Morbius which is pushed back from July 31st, 2020, to March 19th, 2021.

The Tom Holland-starring Uncharted movie has been pushed from March 5th, 2021, to October 8th, 2021 and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway has moved from August 7th, 2020 to January 15th, 2021.

An untitled Sony/Marvel movie due on October 8th, 2021 is now left without a date at all.

This, while sad, is temporary, folks. It’s important to remember that we are all in this together – I’m housebound here in sunny Ireland, so know that wherever you are and however alone you feel, you are not alone. We are all in this together and we’ll all be back in the real world soon. So chin up folks… the Ghostbusters WILL save the world again. Just a little later than planned.

Stay safe, all.

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….
