Morbius – Release Date
The release dates of Morbius have been postponed by Sony pictures due to the obvious reason for the pandemic that it still exists out there. The release dates of Morbius have been delayed numerous times in the past and the last time it was scheduled to release on March 19 but now the new release date is scheduled on October 8, 2021, for the theatrical release of Morbius. The delay is likely seen because of the lockdown restriction implemented in the UK as well as the closure of many theatres in the US as well.
Though, it is not like that every movie that was scheduled to be released in the early months of 2021 have been postponed there are several such films that were to be released in February or March but has not been postponed like “The King’s Man” of 20th Century was said to be released on March 12. It is surprising that Sony didn’t announce anything about “Cinderella” which was to release on February 5, but it certain that either Sony delays the release date or gives the streaming license to any online streaming company like Netflix or Prime Videos or in extreme case Sony Pictures might be going on with the original release date of 5th February.
Now, it seems very clear that the latter is what Sony may be going with because as of now that is just 2-3 before the release date of Cinderella there hasn’t been any announcement regarding the delay of the release date further. Sony might be satisfied with the box office collection of this film seeing this pandemic or it may be a kind of experiment that will show the way people accept the fact of watching movies at theatres after the pandemic, which will definitely help them to decide the future course of action of its future releasing films.
