Movies Delayed - New Ghostbusters and Morbius, Now 2021

MoviesPro!Via Deadline: Sony Postpones Release Dates For 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife', 'Morbius' And More Due To Coronavirus. To save you a click, Ghostbusters and Morbius are both pushed to May 2021.

With toys and other things planned for these movies, it could be possible things will show up in stores very soon - street dates were already in flux for some items, and it's possible this could be like G.I. Joe Retaliation where toys showed up, were pulled or went on clearance, and came back later around the time of the theatrical release.

What's interesting to note, for those keeping track, is how far out things are being pushed. These movies were both originally set for July 2021. In the last week we've seen the Olympics postponed until next year, the Detroit Auto Show cancelled, and a number of other things moved or pushed back. Some studios have new movies delayed until August but it's not unthinkable that they could be delayed a second time.

COVID Movie Delays

MoviesWonder If It's Coming in AugustVia CNET: Coronavirus movie delays: The blockbusters postponed by health fears. It's a big list of productions that almost came out and aren't even done shooting yet.

It's by no means complete - Bill & Ted Face the Music isn't here, anyway - and that was set for August. Speculation in Ye Olde Toy Biz seems to assume big gatherings are unlikely until later this year, so it's a safe bet theatrical movie releases could be put off until late summer or even the holidays. It's possible toy releases will also be postponed, with movies and manufacturing delays (and mass retail) giving everybody a reason to postpone a lot of stuff.

Free Fun ICYMI: NES Böbl ROM from Micro Mages Devs

NintendoNoirVia NesDev: Böbl from Morphcat Games. It's a platform game (or maybe even Metroidvania) where you're a bubble, and you have to stay in the water. It's short and weird - if you loved those Bit Generations games, you need to download this for free right now. In theory you can probably beat it in a short while as there's no "game over." What else are you doing that's so interesting? The world is grounded. Have some fun.
