AMC confirmed that the delayed release of Disney's "New Mutants" will be on August 28, followed by Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" on September 3. Warner Bros. plans to release "Tenet" in Canada and other countries a week earlier. Other releases scheduled for late August include the thriller "Unhinged," starring Russell Crowe and Armando Ianucci's "Personal History of David Copperfield."
AMC said it expects to reopen two-thirds of its theaters in time for the premiere of "Tenet." California, New York and other states still do not allow the reopening of theaters. The chains have said that they will operate with reduced capacity to facilitate social distancing, greater sanitation and the obligation to wear masks.
"Mulan", one of the most anticipated blockbusters in Hollywood, was going to be screened in cinemas around the world on March 27, but its premiere was postponed at the height of the pandemic and since then it has been delayed from month to month, until that it has been impossible to bring the tape to theaters and so far there is no confirmation of its arrival in theaters and it will be online.
