Movie moguls are admitting to themselves that movie theaters are not yet ready to welcome back large crowds of filmgoers, and instead, issue more delays.
For the United States, it's a generous guess that the "late summer" will bring about some sort of normalcy, and even with a vaccine rollout, there's still some skepticism floating around the nation's full recovery so soon. Because of the uncertainty amid the ongoing health crisis, notable film studios are issuing delay dates.
Kingsman prequel The King's Man (2021) has been slammed with delay after delay despite being a finished film. Initially supposed to release in November 2019, The King's Man was pushed to February 2020, and then later to September 2020. It was then moved from its September 2020 date to February 2020, which didn't last long. The prequel is now hoping to release on August 20, 2021, and if it does, the film's teaser trailer would be over two years old.
The King's Man is summarized as "a collection of history's worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in "The King's Man." The movie is directed by Matthew Vaughn and features Ralph Fiennes, Matthew Goode, Harris Dickinson, Djimon Hounsou, Gemma Arterton, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
The King's Man is prepared to release on August 20, 2021.
