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.
