Status Update On BoxOfficeMojo Amid COVID-19 Concerns
With the rise of global concerns over COVID-19, the film industry is just one of many in a state of upheaval. Announced today, both AMC and Regal will close all U.S. theaters, which totals over 1,200 between the two of them, for at least six to 12 weeks, effective March 17. In addition to theater closures, all the major distributors have been forced to move their upcoming releases, leaving something of a barren theatrical landscape looking forward.

What began with the shifting of the release date for the next James Bond film, No Time to Die, from April 10 to November 8, soon became a tidal wave of date changes. Paramount moved A Quiet Place Part II from this coming weekend to an unspecified future release while Disney did the same with not only next week's release of Mulan, but also shifting 20th Century's The New Mutants Searchlight's Antlers, Marvel's Black Widow, The Personal History of David Copperfield and The Woman in the Window.

In addition to that, Universal moved F9 out an entire year and Sony shifted Peter Rabbit 2 from April to an August release. Universal has also already announced they will be making last weekend's new release of The Hunt along with The Invisible Man and Focus's Emma available On Demand as early as this Friday. The studio still has Trolls World Tour set for an April 10 release, with plans to go day-and-date in theaters and On Demand at home.

All that being said, Box Office Mojo will continue to report box office numbers as they are received.

Update 3/21/2020: Given the ongoing impact of COVID-19 (theater closures, delayed release dates), many distributors are suspending box office reporting. While our blog and social posts will be less frequent as a result, Box Office Mojo will continue to report on all data we receive.
