The coronavirus has wrecked havoc on Hollywood’s release schedule, as multiple blockbusters-to-be have had their release dates postponed by as much as a year or canceled indefinitely. We're tracking the latest news on when you’ll be able to see major movies at a theater — or, in some cases, a streaming service — near you.

The original screenplays for “Green Book,” “A Quiet Place,” “Roma,” “Vice” and “Eighth Grade” have been nominated by the Writers Guild of America, which announced its nominations on Monday morning. In the adapted-screenplay category, the nominees were “BlacKkKlansman,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “A Star Is Born,” “Black Panther” and “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” Among the most notable eligible screenplays not to be nominated are Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed” and Josh Singer’s “First Man.” The nominations were made by members of the Writers Guild of America, West and the Writers Guild of America, East, separate but affiliated guilds that will stage simultaneous awards ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York on Feb. 17.

As usual, this has disqualified a number of screenplays that will be eligible for the Oscars, including “The Favourite,” “The Death of Stalin,” “Leave No Trace,” “Cold War,” “The Rider,” “Sorry to Bother You,” “Hereditary,” “Capernaum,” “Isle of Dogs” and “Incredibles 2.” Because of the WGA’s more restrictive eligibility rules, its nominations are one of the least accurate of the major guilds in predicting Oscar nominations. Over the last decade, about two thirds of the Writers Guild nominees have gone on to receive Oscar nominations in the screenwriting categories. Last year, nine of the 10 WGA nominees were recognized by Oscar voters, tying with four different years in the 1990s as the largest such correlation ever between the two awards.

"A Quiet Place" producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller reveal a few things you probably didn't know from the making of the horror hit.
Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun” sequel, “Top Gun: Maverick,” has been pushed back nearly a year from July 12, 2019, to June 26, 2020. Paramount Pictures made the announcement on Wednesday.

After a weekend of fluctuating projections, Dwayne Johnson (just barely) owned the North American box office after all. Though earlier estimates looked like the second frame of “A Quiet Place” would take the weekend, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros.’ “Rampage” snuck up to take the top slot with $34.5 million from 4,101 theaters. […]
Great word of mouth has pushed New Line’s “Rampage” from a slow start to close to its pre-weekend projection goal, as the Dwayne Johnson-led smash-up is set to debut with $34.5 million from 4,101 screens. Critics were mixed about the “Rampage,” giving it a 51 percent Rotten Tomatoes score. TheWrap’s Umberto Gonzalez and Beatrice Verhoeven described “Rampage” as good, popcorn-munching entertainment, and audiences seem to have agreed with families packing Saturday matinees.
Word of mouth for Paramount’s “A Quiet Place” is pushing it towards a great second weekend, as it now has a chance of staving off Warner Bros./New Line’s “Rampage” to keep the top spot at the box office. John Krasinski’s critically acclaimed film made $10.5 million in its second Friday and is now looking at a second weekend total of $34 million. Estimates now have Dwayne Johnson’s CGI-filled monster film making $32 million this weekend against a $120 million budget, below pre-weekend projections for a $35-40 million opening.
James Corden’s employees will go to extreme measures to hide from the “Late Late Show” host, playing Monopoly in silence or bubble-wrapping musical instruments to stay quiet. In “A Quiet Place,” a family must live in silence, otherwise creatures will hunt them. In the parody, Corden just doesn’t seem to get the picture, and constantly tries to hang out with his employees.
Keep your popcorn, and your Whoppers, and your crunchy-as-hell nachos out of the movie theater this weekend. Please. John Krasinski's thriller <em>A Quiet Place</em> debuted Friday and has stunned movie goers into stomach-grumbling silence. The film's plot (no spoilers) revolves around a young family's effort to survive in a world taken over by sound-sensitive monsters who hunt by noise. SEE ALSO: John Krasinski's 'A Quiet Place' is brutally effective white-knuckle horror The storyline means much of the film is nerve-wrackingly silent, amplifying every real-life sound. That has left every person who ordered theater food terrified that a monster is going to rip their face off. And left every person sitting next to someone chomping on popcorn very annoyed. anytime I tried biting into my reese’s pieces while watching A Quiet Place I felt like I was risking the safety of the theater — nathan zed (@NathanZed) April 8, 2018 me trying to eat my popcorn during A QUIET PLACE pic.twitter.com/aXMQNZ5SMo — sreekar (@sreekyshooter) April 7, 2018 when you’re seated for a quiet place and someone sits next to you with a big thing of popcorn pic.twitter.com/j3V9UmCD5J — ♀mia jolie-pitt ♀ (@MIACINO) April 7, 2018 THE PEOPLE SITTING NEXT TO ME FOR A QUIET PLACE HAVE POPCORN... pic.twitter.com/eiRR5C3CPM — samokanikan!

Trust me. — Grant Smith (@MasterWuggles) April 8, 2018 The scariest thing to me about A QUIET PLACE is how loud the popcorn eating is going to be in the theater while everyone on screen is being quiet. — Doug Benson (@DougBenson) April 5, 2018 A Quiet Place was good but do NOT bring kettle chips to the movie because it WILL BE loud and people WILL notice how fast you’re eating #AQuietPlace @johnkrasinski — Molly Stukey (@mollllypocket) April 8, 2018 going to see a quiet place in 5 hours lets pray i don't make noise while eating in this quiet movie theater pic.twitter.com/bmjZYcJyDK — ً (@nickjrbnsn) April 8, 2018 A Quiet Place is the worst movie to eat popcorn during. — Rebecca Pahle (@RebeccaPahle) April 3, 2018 How scary is “A Quiet Place”? Well, while we were leaving the theater a food server dropped a metal tray on the ground. Everyone who had just seen the movie spun around and looked at the noise with genuine terror. Hell of a film @johnkrasinski. #AQuietPlace pic.twitter.com/kIoCoyTKtW — Blaine Gibson (@BGibbles) April 8, 2018 A heads up - if you go and see ‘A quiet place’ at the cinema, don’t buy any snacks. I managed about 3 kernels of popcorn throughout 🍿 ❌ — Jack (@jackmcnn) April 5, 2018 ‘A Quiet Place’ sounds like absolute horror.A movie so silent you can hear everyone in the theatre eating their snacks.Chills already. — Sammosuke Nohara (@sambeesems) April 8, 2018 If you watch A Quiet Place, don’t bring food. I had to strategically eat my hot dog. Don’t even bother with pretzels. — stay-at-home jerome (@ShhroOmz) April 8, 2018 Listen, I get it, movie popcorn drenched in butter is a gift from the saturated fat heavens. And a giant box of Junior Mints tastes better in the theater. I KNOW. But please for all of us, just go to Chili's or something after. WATCH: What is the cast of ‘The Office’ doing now?
“A Quiet Place” has crept up on an unsuspecting box office and delivered a very impressive $50 million opening from 3,508 screens. Holding a budget of $17 million, Paramount’s horror film saw its pre-weekend projections tick up last week as reviews gave the film a 97 percent Rotten Tomatoes score. Not only is this result 51 percent higher than the $33 million opening for last year’s critically-acclaimed horror film “Get Out,” it’s also the biggest opening for Paramount since “Star Trek: Beyond” and the $59 million it made all the way back in July 2016.
“A Quiet Place” was looking to make noise at the weekend box office, and it delivered. Paramount Pictures’ thriller, directed by John Krasinski, soared past estimates to a massive $50.3 million opening in 3,508 theaters. That’s enough to land it the second highest domestic opening of the year to date behind “Black Panther,” which opened […]
