Every Major Movie Delayed by the Coronavirus Pandemic: From Top Gun 2 to Captain Marvel Sequel

General Electric Workers Want to Build Medical Equipment to Fight Coronavirus. Management Is Standing in the Way

General Electric Workers Want to Build Medical Equipment to Fight Coronavirus. Management Is Standing in the Way
The workers at General Electric Aviation’s facility in Lynn, Massachusetts make jet engines and helicopter parts, most notably the massive T408 engine that powers the U.S. Marine Corps “King Stallion” heavy-lift helicopter. They are good at what they do, but in the past few decades the company has steadily moved jobs overseas until the plant’s workforce is a fraction of what it once was in the early 90s. That workforce is still strong, and they’re currently fighting for both their own lives and the chance to maybe save yours.

Police Academy Franchise Facts You Never Knew You Needed

Police Academy Franchise Facts You Never Knew You Needed
When the original Police Academy barnstormed its way into theaters in 1984, nobody had any way of knowing that this film would be a franchise with 7 films to its credit. Grossing hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office, what Police Academy achieved is nothing short of astounding. With a cast of mostly unknown character actors, this film clicked with a public who seemed to be starved for the wacky, slapstick comic situations that Police Academy so deftly offered.

Making this even more astounding is that it wasn't like 1984 was devoid of comedies. Ghostbusters and Beverly Hills Cop were both in theaters and each one of these raked in many millions of dollars. Somehow, Police Academy placed 6th on this list beating out such films as Footloose, Romancing the Stone and Splash. So how did this movie that was made for $4.5 million dollars go on to become a franchise? Well,

Sony Delays “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” And “Morbius” Until 2021 Due To Coronavirus

Sony Delays “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” And “Morbius” Until 2021 Due To Coronavirus
Another studio has opted to push off from the mess that is 2020. Sony, almost completely, has abandoned ship on the year and is moving their biggest titles into 2021. Obviously, this is due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the outbreak that has shuttered movie theaters indefinitely. Without a solid timetable for when theaters could open again, it does make sense for the studio to play it safe and just think about next year, when things will hopefully be back to normal (or whatever will pass for normalcy in the future). They’ve delayed most of their highest profile tentpoles, including the highly anticipated Ghostbusters sequel. Chief among the changes are Ghostbusters: Afterlife moving from this July to next March. Morbius is going from the same timeframe of July to March, pushing into 2021. The upcoming still to be shot Uncharted film is heading from March of next year to October, giving it

Sony Delays Multiple 2020 Films Into 2021: ‘Morbius,’ ‘Ghostbusters’ & More
For the past few weeks, we’ve seen studios scramble to move films that were scheduled to be released in theaters this spring until later this year. Usually, it’s a case-by-case basis, with studios waiting until there was no other choice but to delay. However, in the case of Sony and its big 2020 films, the studio decided the best move is to plan for the future and delay pretty much every major film on its slate until 2021.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Fans Are Furious About The Film’s Delay
Hollywood is still in a hugely reactive phase due to the Coronavirus pandemic, with virtually every project that was either filming or about to start rolling cameras getting halted, while the upcoming release schedule has essentially been wiped clean as the studios try to find new dates for their movies once the crisis is over.

Disney seem to be holding back on rescheduling the likes of Black Widow and Mulan until they have a better idea of when things will get back to normal, but Sony recently took the bold step of pushing back some of their biggest box office prospects until 2021, following the lead of Universal who moved their guaranteed billion dollar hit Fast & Furious 9 by almost a full year.

Sony Aggressively Pushes Back Its Entire Summer Release Slate

Sony Aggressively Pushes Back Its Entire Summer Release Slate
As Hollywood looks forward to resuming business as usual, it may be a while. Late Monday, Sony revealed new 2021 dates for their four summer releases. The studio has also pushed back three other moves. Like so much these days, this wholesale overhaul of a release schedule would have been unthinkable even a month ago.

Three of the Sony summer titles are moving to first quarter 2021, led by Sony’s latest “Ghostbusters” franchise entry, “Morbius,” starring Jared Leto, and sequel “Peter Rabbit 2.” Tom Hanks World War II drama “Greyhound” is floating for now. Sony moved Kevin Hart drama “Fatherhood” from January 2021 to October, while pushing back two other 2021 entries.

Ghostbusters, Morbius Moved in Sony Schedule Shift
Sony Pictures has just shifted the release dates of a very large chunk of its upcoming slate, according to Deadline, pushing a number of major releases and summer tentpoles into next year in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Perhaps the two biggest films that are getting moved are Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the Sony/Marvel comic book movie Morbius. The former, directed by Jason Reitman and starring Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd and Finn Wolfhard (along with cameos from most of the original Ghostbusters cast), has jumped from July 10, 2020 to March 5, 2021.

Meanwhile, Morbius, Sony’s newest entry in its self-contained universe of Spider-Man villains, will now open on March 19, 2021 instead of July 31, 2020 as originally planned. The film stars Jared Leto as the scientist who accidentally turns himself into a vampire-like anti-hero.

Also getting pushed into the future is Uncharted, the long-in-development video game adaptation that has now delayed production after years of false starts.

First Poster Released For Chris Hemsworth’s Netflix Action Movie Extraction

First Poster Released For Chris Hemsworth’s Netflix Action Movie Extraction
No offense to Chris Hemsworth, but he’s always struggled to transfer his success as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to other projects where he’s playing the leading man. While he’s always good value for money when tackling supporting roles in the likes of Vacation, Ghostbusters and Bad Times at the El Royale that make the best use of his charisma and comic timing, his track record when his name is above the title is a whole lot less than encouraging.

Michael Mann’s Blackhat is one of the biggest bombs in recent memory after earning less than $20 million globally, Ron Howard’s period-set In the Heart of the Sea failed to recoup its $100 million budget at the box office, 12 Strong’s critical and commercial performance was decidedly mediocre, and the less said about Men in Black: International, the better.

Luckily for Hemsworth, his latest movie,
