Joe Wright’s musical drama Cyrano has had its UK release delayed, with the country experiencing a continued wave of Covid infections propelled by the Omicron variant.
Universal has moved the Peter Dinklage-starring film from its planned January 14 bow and has rescheduled it for February 25.
The studio confirmed the news but did not specify a reason. The film’s U.S. release via MGM is still on track, with a limited run set to begin January 28 followed by expansion through Valentine’s Day.
UK cinemas remain open and operating at full capacity. Masks are mandatory, a rule reinstated by the government during this latest wave of cases, but there are no major restrictions.
