With movie theaters still closed due to the pandemic, our favorite upcoming films have been delayed (yet again).

In a shocking move, Disney announced that the live-action Mulan film will be delayed indefinitely. The move comes shortly after Warner Bros. announced that they will also delay the upcoming Christopher Nolan film, Tenet, without an upcoming release date, according to Variety.

"Over the last few months, it's become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for Mulan as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world," a Walt Disney Studios spokesperson said in a statement, according to CNN.

The French Dispatch was also delayed indefinitely while other series like Avatar and Star Wars were pushed back a year, according to IndieWire. Meanwhile, Black Widow is still set to premiere on November 6, 2020, becoming one of the few films without a new release date during this update.

The much-anticipated release of The New Mutants got a separate update earlier this week during it's San Diego Comic Con panel where it finally got an updated release date and is now set to be released on August 28.

With the latest date changes, AMC Theaters is now set to open up around mid-to-late August, according to a recent press release.

"This new timing reflects currently expected release dates for much anticipated blockbusters like Warner Bros.' Tenet and Disney's Mulan, as well as release dates for several other new movies coming to AMC's big screens."

For now, let's hope that things get better so we can watch our favorite movies on the big screen again!
