Wonder Woman 1984, Godzilla, And Matrix 4 Release Dates Delayed
Even though theaters are slowly reopening, Warner Bros. is delaying the theatrical release of some high-profile films.
While theaters are slowly opening across the country, including in California, with new guidelines for cinemas, Warner Bros. is shifting around many dates for upcoming movies. And most of these films are getting pushed back.
Christopher Nolan's Tenet has already seen a delay--now hitting theaters in late July--and three other major Warner Bros. films are being shifted, including Wonder Woman 1984, which moves to October 2, 2020 from August 14, as Gal Gadot revealed in a tweet.

Additionally, Godzilla vs. Kong and Matrix 4 will be shifted, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Matrix is being pushed back 11 months and has a new release date of April 1, 2022, primarily because of production shut-down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Godzilla vs. Kong--originally hitting theaters this Thanksgiving--will arrive in Matrix 4's old spot of May 21, 2021.
The kid's film Tom & Jerry gets bumped back six month and the upcoming Robert Zemekis film Witches was supposed to release on October 9 of this year, but has now been removed from the release calendar for the time being. Check out the new release dates below.
