The new film of The Secret Garden moves forward to fill the gap left by Peter Rabbit 2.
As you may have heard yesterday, the latest big film – following No Time To Die – to put back its release due to fears over the spread of Coronavirus is Sony’s sequel, Peter Rabbit 2. Easy to scoff at this one, but the first movie was a profitable hit for the studio, and it had high commercial hopes for the movie, that was due to start playing in UK cinemas on 27th March, with preview screenings the week before.
Now, given fears that people will be avoiding cinemas, Sony has moved the release of the film back to the school summer holidays, with a 7th August release scheduled instead.
However, most films aren’t budging backwards. In fact, some are moving forward to fill the gap left by Sony’s move. In fact, we’re now hearing that StudioCanal’s release of The Secret Garden – the review embargo isn’t up yet, so we can’t tell you how much we loved it – is moving forward a week. It had been scheduled for release on 10th April, but will now arrive in cinemas on 3rd April instead.
Thus far, it’s just two films that have moved back then due to Coronavirus concerns. But obviously, the situation is evolving.
