Sony Delays ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ and ‘Morbius’

In a matter of a few weeks, several Hollywood studios have postponed big-budget films due to the global pandemic of COVID-19 in an effort to reduce social gathering in movie theaters for the time being. Now Sony has hopped on that bandwagon with delaying seven of their films which include Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the Spider-Man Spin-off Morbius according to Variety.

The rescheduling of these two films is as follows:

Ghostbusters: Afterlife to March 5, 2021 from July 10, 2020.

Morbius to March 19, 2021 from July 31, 2020.

Made as a direct sequel to Ghostbusters II, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the story of two children (Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard) and their single mother (Carrie Coon) who after being evicted from their home move to a farm in Summerville, Oklahoma, left to them by their late grandfather. When the town experiences a series of unexplained earthquakes, the children discover their family’s link to the original Ghostbusters team, who have become something of a myth as many have long-since forgotten the events of the “Manhattan Crossrip of 1984,” and the secret legacy that their grandfather left behind.

Morbius serves as Sony’ second spin-off for a Spider-Man villain after 2018’s breakout success Venom, which stars Jared Leto as Michael Morbius, who is suffering from a rare blood disease and tries a dangerous cure that afflicts him with a form of vampirism.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
