Thanks to the unprecedented pandemic, a number of movies have been pulled off the release calendar or juggled around. But the good news is that in the last week, as we’ve started to get a better idea of just how long this will last, studios and distributors have started to put new release dates out for movies that previously had a “TBD” by their names.

And it tells an interesting story, one that indicates studios believe things will be back to normal, or as close to it, by Labor Day this year. Our summer blockbuster season might be sparse, but late summer through the fall will be absolutely stacked.
