The movie release calendar for 2020 is in constant flux right now thanks to the coronavirus COVID-19. Films are being shuffled and pulled left and right, and right now, everything in 2020 is currently up in the air. In an attempt to make sense of it all, I went ahead and compiled a list of movies that are still opening in 2020 – for now. All of these dates may change and one of them, in April, will definitely change. But for now, here are all the movies opening in 2020.
There’s only one movie in April – My Spy. And it seems very likely that this is happening. But the release date hasn’t changed yet, so I’m including it.
April 17: My Spy
A24 has yet to move The Green Knight, and while I’m dying to see it, I have my doubts this date will hold.
May 29: The Green Knight
The summer movie season as we know it is all but decimated this year. That said, there are some titles that are still holding for the time being. While Disney has shuffled several titles, they’ve yet to move Soul. Indie titles like The King of Staten Island and Miranda July’s Kajillionaire are also still holding onto their dates.
June 19: Soul
June 19: The King of Staten Island
June 19: Kajillionaire
June 19: Fatale
Disney just moved Mulan to July, and Paramount did the same with The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run. Are they nuts, or just optimistic? We’ll see! Christopher Nolan’s Tenet has also yet to move.
July 10: The Purge 5
July 17: Tenet
July 24: Mulan
July 31: TheSpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run
July 31: Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar
I’m not a betting man, but if I were, I’d put money on August being the earliest possible time that theaters re-open. As such, these dates are possible. Wonder Woman 1984 is going to be the biggest indicator here – if that moves again, then the other titles will probably move, too.
August 7: Infinite
August 14: Wonder Woman 1984
August 14: The One and Only Ivan
August 14: Nobody
August 14: Charm City Kings
August 21: Bill and Ted Face the Music
August 21: Let Him Go
August 28: The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard
While August seems like a possible re-opening month, September seems more likely. And as of now, September is looking stacked. A Quiet Place Part II, one of the first films to move off its release date due to the virus, was just set for September. Ditto Candyman, which was originally supposed to open in June. We’ve yet to see any promotional material for films like The Many Saints of Newark and The Trial of the Chicago 7, so I really have no idea if they’re dates will hold. For now, though, they remain on the calendar.
September 4: A Quiet Place Part II
September 4: Monster Hunter
September 4: Honest Thief
September 11: The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It
September 18: Connected
September 18: The King’s Man
September 18: Without Remorse
September 25: Candyman
September 25: Last Night in Soho
September 25: The Many Saints of Newark
September 25: The Trial of the Chicago 7
Venom 2 is still set for October, and set photos of the film in production have surfaced. But Sony already delayed Morbius to next year, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they did the same for Venom 2. Halloween Kills has already wrapped, so there’s a good chance that date holds. Death on the Nile also wrapped in December of 2019, so that might be safe.
October 2: Venom 2
October 2: BIOS
October 9: Death on the Nile
October 9: The Witches
October 16: The French Dispatch
October 16: Halloween Kills
October 23: Snake Eyes
October 23: Fatherhood
November is the new home of Black Widow, and of course, No Time to Die. King Richard, starring Will Smith, began filming in January 2020, and it’s unclear if the production has finished yet. If it hasn’t, you can expect that to move soon. I also wouldn’t be surprised if Warner Bros. moves Tenet from July to Godzilla vs. Kong‘s November 20 date, and pushes Godzilla vs. Kong indefinitely.
November 6: Black Widow
November 6: Stillwater
November 13: Deep Water
November 20: Godzilla vs. Kong
November 25: No Time to Die
November 25: Raya and the Last Dragon
November 25: King Richard
November 25: Happiest Season
Merry Christmas! Remember what I said above about Tenet and Godzilla vs. Kong? Well, if Warner Bros. doesn’t make that movie, I also wouldn’t be surprised if they moved Dune to 2021 and set Tenet for December 18. Production has hed on The Last Duel, so you can probably expect that to move, too.
