Paramount’s China office has announced that it’s pushing the release date of Sonic the Hedgehog due to the coronavirus outbreak with a future date TBD. The Jeff Fowler-directed movie recently clocked past $203M WW this past weekend.
Note: No other Hollywood movies in the PRC have been officially dated or moved in the wake of the coronavirus situation. The country’s exhibition infrastructure remains closed as they look to contain the virus. There’s buzz should the situation improve in the PRC, that Disney’s Mulan could go in May. Recently, MGM cancelled a China April premiere and publicity tour for its upcoming 007 movie No Time to Die.
