    I thought it was time for a collective thread for movies getting new release dates, get taken off the schedule, or going straight to streaming, because of CoVID. In this opening post, I'll give a list of recent changes for major releases, you are more than welcome to add to the list. Going with US release dates, as they are indicative of release dates in other countries.

    - Dune; old release date: December 18, 2020; new release date: October 1, 2021
    - No Time To Die; old release date: November 25, 2020; new release date: April 2, 2021
    - The Batman; old release date: October 1, 2021; new release date: March 4, 2022
    - Black Widow; old release date: November 6, 2020; new release date: May 7, 2021
    - Soul; old release date: November 20, 2020; pushed to Disney+ for December 25, 2020
    - Jurassic World: Dominion; old release date: June 11, 2021; new release date: June 10, 2022

    And this one just came in:

    - Coming 2 America: old release date: December 18, 2020; bought by Amazon Prime for streaming release on the same date

    Damn, I hadn't heard about Coming 2 America's shift. That's less sad than Soul because I don't feel the need to see that on the big screen. Plus, it makes it easier to do a back-to-back viewing of the original (which I haven't seen in yyyeeeearrsss) and the sequel.
