The good news here for exhibition is that Disney has a plan to open Mulan in the near future, close to Tenet and not during the holidays or 2021 (or even on Disney+, for that matter).
Hollywood's hopes for salvaging its summer season have effectively ended after the releases of both Christopher Nolan's Tenet and the Walt Disney Co.'s live-action reboot of Mulan were again delayed. Previously, the movie was slated to arrive the week after Tenet when Disney pushed it back from the original March release to the hopeful July 24 slot.
What upcoming Disney film are you looking forward to seeing the most? Director Niki Caro and our cast and crew have created a attractive, epic, and moving film that is everything the cinematic experience should be, and that's where we believe it belongs - on the world stage and the big screen for audiences around the globe to enjoy together.
This is the second time "Mulan" has been pushed from its release date. But the global health crisis has resulted in a lot of movies being delayed, and while that resulted in Mulan being pushed to the end of next month, the Mouse House has announced its pushing the movie back a little further. In the meantime, drive-in theaters continue to keep the box office propped up in the U.S.as they have seen something of an impressive resurgence that would have been hard to predict just a few months ago.
Tenet was moved from July 17 - just before Mulan's previous release date - to two weeks later on August 12.
This comes briefly after Warner Bros.
Roughly 780 indoor theaters now are open in the United States, according to research firm Comscore. It will now launch on August 21, a statement from Disney said Friday - though the company warned of the need to be "flexible" in the process.
