All the Studio Movies Still Scheduled to Open in Theaters in 2020

Will films like “Soul,” “Wonder Woman 1984” or “Coming 2 America” remain on the calendar?

“No Time to Die” was just the first domino to fall. When the 25th James Bond movie moved from its release in November and prompted Cineworld to announce the “temporary suspension” of over 600 locations in the U.S. and the U.K., it begged the question, just which films are still slated to open in theaters in 2020?

Honestly, not a ton, and the goalposts are moving so quickly that TheWrap just reported the sci-fi epic “Dune” from Warner Bros. would also no longer open on December 18 as planned.

We’ve already seen plenty of movies jump ship from 2020, with films like “Black Widow,” “Top Gun: Maverick,” “West Side Story” and more pushing back by a few more months to summer 2021 or beyond. But we already played this game earlier this year, and already delayed movies like “Soul,” “Wonder Woman 1984” still incredibly have question marks over their heads.

Below we’ve rounded up the remaining studio movies that are still slated for a wide, theatrical release in the waning months of 2020. And as you’ll see, we’re a few weeks out from any major studio release, with the chance that the rest of the year could look pretty thin fast.
