The coronavirus has definitely paralyzed a majority of sectors, including the movie industry. Remember back in March when the producers announced the movie release delays of James Bond release and saw everyone struck dumb? Well, that was just the opening of a series of unfortunate events triggered by the coronavirus outbreak. After the reschedule of James Bond: No Time To Die premiere, a sequence of Hollywood blockbusters followed. There have been multiple changes in the release slates of many upcoming movies, spreading from 2020 throughout 2021.

Although fully prioritizing our well-being during this pandemic is essential, it is also of great concern that all these movie cancelations have wreaked havoc to the film industry. The coronavirus pandemic is having a tremendous negative impact on our lives in general, more than just being financially damaging to film studios. The film industry’s indefinite halt is just one of the signs that show our disrupted normalcy and badly hurt business activities due to this pandemic.

Film Festival

As a part of social distancing practices, many big events all around the world have been postponed. This year's Cannes film festival is among those events. March 12 marked the official announcement on the cancelation of the most prestigious annual event of the film industry. Since Europe has become the new epicenter of the pandemic, calling off such a public gathering like Cannes is essential to France’s combat against the fatal virus.

This year's SXSW conference in Texas couldn’t take place either. This has caused enormous disappointment among its participants especially film producers who had put their hearts and souls into the works.

New York’s Tribeca film festival is also amid many canceled events. This year has seen numerous cancelations of multiple big events, which will surely pose a serious threat to the financial health of many people.

The film industry has come to a halt due to the coronavirus and as a matter of fact, filming is also unable to get underway in time. The interruption of movie productions involves some of the forthcoming blockbusters such as Mission: Impossible 7, Indiana Jones 5, The Matrix 4, Avatar 2, and many more. As Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson tested positive for coronavirus, the production of Luhrmann's biopic of Elvis Presley was also unable to continue.

As movie release delays are inevitable, hope that the world will soon overcome this unprecedented time so we can enjoy these blockbusters on the big screen.
