In less than one week, the coronavirus outbreak has had a massive impact on the Hollywood box office. Amid the closures of cinema-halls and other relevant news in the U.S. and across the globe, the movie studios are forced to shift the release dates of some major movies to further dates. Every Big studio and independent film that was set to release on screens between this end of the week and Memorial Day is rescheduled.

Apart from the movie business, the covid-19 has led many businesses to arrive at an abrupt halt. Companies all over the globe are hurting financially. The showbiz will see a decline in the numbers as an effect of the coronavirus, but the major studios will be looking to avoid any such loss. Big studious are not taking any risks and carelessly moving the dates further.

For the movies that were recently released like Frozen II, Birds of Prey, and Sonic: The Hedgehog, they have or are seeing a significant decline in the revenues due to the outbreak and these studious wish they had foresee the scenario.

Despite it all, the theater owners are looking positive even though the potential losses due to the outbreak may be over billions of dollars. “No one can precisely predict when public life will return to normal, but it will return,” the National Society of Theater Owners said in a statement this week amid the theatrical downturn. “The social nature of human beings—the thing that exposes us to contagion, and that makes it so difficult to change behavior in response to pandemic threats—is also the thing that gives us confidence in the future. People will return to movie theaters because that is who people are. When they return they will rediscover a cutting edge, immersive entertainment experience that they have been forcefully reminded they cannot replicate at home. In the uncertain, difficult economy ahead, movie theaters will fill the role they always have in boom times and in recessions—the most popular, affordable entertainment available outside the home.”

Regardless of when the lives of people will become normal, for now, the movie industry has hit a standstill. Here is the list of all the major movies that have been moved further by the studious to avoid any losses. Much to the dismay of the fans, Universal has shifted the release of F9 to 2021, while the new release dates the rest of the movies are still undecided.
