The apocalyptic horror film is now slated for November 24th, a delay of about two months compared to the previous date set for 3 September. That day also represents – at the moment – the new release date of Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings, recently optioned by Disney. Sony Pictures’ strategy seems clear, space the reboot of Resident Evil from a potentially ‘ace takes it all’ cinecomic at the box office, especially given that the story will follow the first Asian superhero.
In the last weeks, the studios have resumed their game of date changes and postponements that has accompanied us throughout 2020: for example Lionsgate has moved Spiral: Saw’s legacy al May 14, in this case anticipating the expected launch by a week, while Warner Bros. recently announced that Mortal Kombat will be postponed by a week and will be released on April 23. Meanwhile, Disney has changed strategies for several titles, including Black Widow, which will now be released definitively on July 9 between the cinema and the Disney Plus streaming service on demand with VIP access.
