As the COVID-19 pandemic forces cinemas to close worldwide, Sony has announced that numerous upcoming titles have been delayed to later dates, with most of their upcoming slate now scheduled for 2021. Deadline is reporting new release dates for several upcoming films, including much anticipated titles like Morbius and Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Morbius, the Jared Leto-starring Spider-Man spin-off about the titular "living vampire," will now release on March 19, 2021. It was originally scheduled for a July 31, 2020 release. Meanwhile, Ghostbusters: Afterlife has been knocked back to March 5, 2021; it was originally due on July 10.

Other films delayed include Greyhound, starring Tom Hanks, which was scheduled for a June 12 release but does not have a new date set. Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway will now release on January 15, 2021, pushed back from August 7. Even films previously due in 2021 already are getting delayed--Kevin Hart vehicle Fatherhood will now release October 23, 2021, instead of its original date of January 15.

The long-in-development Uncharted film has also been delayed until October 8, 2021, from its original March 5 date. It was previously announced that production had been delayed, so this was expected.

These are just the latest in a long line of cancellations and date shifts caused by COVID-19, as the world moves to reduce the impact of this pandemic. Some movies are still being planned for 2020 releases, though--Wonder Woman 1984 has been delayed, but only until August.
