News from around the web

Disney have taken their time to decide how to release the Marvel movie Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson but today they have moved the movie from May 7th to July 9th and as well as movie theatres will release the movie to Disney+ Premier Access, so an extra £19.99 ($30 in America) per movie on top of your monthly cost!

With cinemas in the UK set to re-open mid May this a needed delay, although this now gives the movie a clash with Top Gun: Maverick so we could see a move there soon as well.

Black Widow

This new release date for Black Widow means also on the move is another Marvel movie, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which changes from July 9th to September 3rd, same day as Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

The Pixar movie Luca will still release on June 18th but will go directly to Disney+, interestingly not the extra cost Premier Access, a surprise movie as kids movies have done very well during the lockdowns?

Also on the move are Free Guy starring Ryan Reynolds which changes May 21st to August 13th, which means The King's Man is changing August 20th to December 22nd, currently the same day as Jon Chu's screen adaptation of Wicked and Kenneth Branagh's Death on the Nile which moves September 17th 2021 to February 11th 2022, currently the same day as video game adaptation Uncharted.

Cruella

Finally the 101 Dalmatians prequel movie Cruella will still get a May 28th release but as well as a theatrical release will get a Disney+ with Premier Access, so yes the extra £19.99 ($30 in America).

This is a movie Disney had to make, especially for Black Widow with its much delayed release. Cinemas across the world are staring to open up as the pandemic gets under control with the rollout of the vaccine doing well, lets hope this is the last move for these movies.

With cinemas set to open in the UK around May 17th the return of the box office is still a couple of months away but getting close.

If your fed up with these moves, heres Ryan Reynolds to put a light hearted spin on it all.

NOTE: The price of Disney+ Premier Access is based on previous releases and could change at anytime.

As the pandemic is starting to get under control in much of the world with the agressive distribution of the vaccine many markets are starting to open their cinema door with China still leading the way, and with Russia and Japan still showing good number and this coming weekend many more American states are staring to open up.

This means the global box office is starting to take shape, and although its still heavily lead by Chinese movies this week the new Tom & Jerry: The Movie has done well globally, and next weekend we have the new Disney movie Raya and the Last Dragon hitting cinemas.

Here is the current global box office Quickview

  • Number 1 - Hi, Mom (3rd weekend)
  • Highest debut - No new movies
  • Longest run - Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train (20 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Hi, Mon ($677,300,000)

Sony have announced that the release date of Ghostbusters: Afterlife is moving to June 11th 2021, in other schedule change news Candyman is now set for am August 27th 2021 release.

There will be a time when a movies release date wont change, other than the odd film here and there, but the world needs to control the COVID-19 pandemic first so cinemas can open safely for their customers.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

The change for the next Ghostbusters film is not too bad only shifting by a couple of months unlike many recent changes which have moved anything from 12 - 19 months.

For Candyman at least when the removed it from its previous October opening they didn't set a new date so the new August 27th release is news.

There is a suspicion that there will be more changes to come, Wonder Woman 1984 currently set for 25th/26th December 2020 a likely candidate, so keep with 25thframe.co.uk for up to the minute news.

The first trailer for the Denis Villeneuve directed Dune has been released and it looks as epic as you'd expect from the Blade Runner 2049 creator.

The book Dune was first adapted in 1984 by alternative director David Lynch, it was not well received at the time but has built a cult following over the years.

As technology has moved on and film makers are able to visualise fantastical fantasy books closer to the source material films are being remade that look stunning.

Judging from this first trailer the movie looks fantastic and as Epic a movie as you can have, every scene just looks incredible.

Dune

One of the main criticisms of the David Lynch directed version was the confusing plot, this looks like the story telling has been upped and made more accessible for the masses.

The movie is set for December 18th 2020 in the UK and US, save from any delays because of a COVID-19 spike, and looks set to be a big Christmas hit.
