Coronavirus Delays Bob’s Burgers, The King’s Man, & Other Films

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact Hollywood, Disney has delayed another round of movies.


On Friday, numerous titles, all from the company’s 20th Century Studios and Searchlight banner, were shifted out of the first half of the year.


Among those films are The King’s Man, which moved from March 12 to Aug. 20, while animated family film Ron’s Gone Wrong has been pushed from April 23 to Oct. 22. Bob’s Burgers, a movie based on the popular TV show that was set for April 9, has been taken off the release calendar entirely.


Meanwhile, four Searchlight titles have been given new release dates: horror film The Night House (July 16), the Jessica Chastain-led biopic (why is Hollywood still trying to make this actress a thing?) The Eyes of Tammy Faye (Sept. 24), supernatural thriller Antlers (Oct. 29 in limited release) and Guillermo del Toro’s twisted suspense drama Nightmare Alley (Dec. 3 in limited release).
