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.
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.
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.
