SINGAPORE — Disney has just announced new release dates for Singapore for its 2021 line-up of movies across its stable of studios, including Marvel, Pixar, 20th Century Fox, and Searchlight Pictures.
Some of these movies had been scheduled to open in theatres last year, but, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic threw a wrench in those plans. Movies that were delayed till this year include Black Widow, Free Guy, and The King's Man.
Spider-Man 3: No Way Home, although also part of the MCU Phase 4 movies, is technically owned by Sony and not Disney, and hence wasn't included in Disney's announcement; but we know that No Way Home is getting a 17 December 2021 release.
Update On Reshuffled Release Dates:
Disney announced on 24 March that it had changed the release dates of several films in its 2021 line-up, as well as added a few of them to be made available on its streaming service, Disney+.
Marvel's Black Widow, which had been slated to open on 29 April, will now be released in theatres on 9 July. Black Widow will now also be released simultaneously on Disney+ at an initial additional price for premier access, similar to the release format for Mulan and Raya And The Last Dragon.
Shang-chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings, the first Marvel movie with a fully Asian cast, previously announced to open on 8 July, will now be pushed to 2 September.
Eternals, starring Angelina Jolie as a member of a race of immortals living among Earthlings, has kept its scheduled 28 October opening.
Another upcoming tentpole, Cruella has had its release shifted back to 27 May, one week before its previously announced 3 June release.
Like Black Widow, Cruella will also be released in theatres and on Disney+ at the same time.
There are also two Pixar films in the line-up: Luca and Encanto. Luca will be available to stream on Disney+ on 17 June.
Free Guy, starring Ryan Reynolds as a video game character, will be shifted for a 12 August opening from its previous 20 May date.
The King’s Man, starring Ralph Fiennes, will now open on 23 December instead of 19 August.
Deep Water and Death On The Nile are now slated for 2022, instead of their previous August dates.
