Sony Pictures, a global leader in entertainment, has chosen to once again change the release dates for a number of high profile movies. This includes Doctor Strange 2, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 and the untitled sequel for Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The company announced that it has moved the release date for Spider-Man 3 from the 16th of July to the 5th of November. It also opted to change the release date for the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse from the 7th of October to the 8th of April in 2022.
In addition, the company’s planned release date for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness has changed from the 5th of November to the 25th of March in 2020 and Love and Thunder will jump from the 18th of February, 2022 to the 18th.
Sony also has chosen to move forward the Uncharted movie from its original date of October 8th, 2021 to the 16th of July but considering the development of this movie it most likely will be pushed back further. This is a result of the continued pandemic that is impacting the world, movie production being one industry feeling its impact.
Those who have been keeping track of the project are well aware that Uncharted has faced multiple problems throughout its development. This includes the changing of directors on seven different occasions, before finally signing Antonio Banderas to the cast and securing another new director.
It was anticipated that filming of the movie would begin in this spring however the coronavirus pandemic brought that to an end. Considering that, and other delays that saw the entire calendar for Marvel Phase 4 being shuffled, it was unexpected that Sony would move up its release date.
The Continued Delay for Uncharted
The Uncharted movie, which seems perpetually unlucky, once again hit a snag in its production due to the spreading of COVID-19. Initially, it was set to start filming this April in Berlin, Germany. However, that was halted for an initial period of six weeks, but with the virus still rampant in many parts of the world, it is unknown when production will get started. What is factual is this is another crisis for a film that has seen one unfortunate turn of events after another and can only hope that it will catch a break once things level out and life begins to return to normal.
