A Calendar of All the Movies That Would Have Been Released — and Their New Dates

Here's the original schedule for all the films that were delayed and have since been given new release dates.

No Time to Die

“No Time to Die”


Once upon a time, “Tenet” was set to open today, July 17. When Warners dated the film, rivals got out of the way. At this writing, it’s scheduled for August 12 worldwide, and it’s just one of many major releases to see (sometimes multiple) delays — or, rerouting to VOD release. Trying to track, or even remember, all the films that shifted would challenge even the most obsessed film fan.

With that in mind, we’ve recreated the original release calendar for March 20 through July 17 as it stood on March 3 — the day before Bond film “No Time to Die” shifted from April to November, auguring a massive number of changes to come.

The list, which we will continue updating, includes all studio wide release titles to date, and the most significant specialized titles that anticipated a limited release. Of note: A film like “Palm Springs” (Neon) was expected to have a major theatrical release before streaming on Hulu, but it never announced a date. This list only includes those films which announced an official date for theatrical release.
