  • Nobody originally set for April 9 before 2nd COVID-19 wave hit

Fast & Furious 9’s India release date has been delayed by fortnight , Universal Pictures announced on Wednesday afternoon. the newest chapter within the Fast Saga is now due Thursday, August 19 in Indian cinemas, rather than the sooner Thursday, August 5 date. The new August 19 release date for Fast & Furious 9 comes as a part of a two-month slate announcement from NBCUniversal, the parent company of Universal Pictures. Alongside, we’ve Oscar-winning Promising girl on Transfiguration , M. Night Shyamalan’s Old on August 13, Bob Odenkirk-led Nobody and animated sequel The Croods: a replacement Age on August 27, animated sequel The Boss Baby: closed corporation on September 10, and therefore the dystopian follow-up The Forever Purge on Citizenship Day .

All of those seven Universal Pictures titles have already been released in theatres globally. The Croods: a replacement Age released all the way back in November last year, and Promising girl came out last Christmas within the US. Nobody released on March 26 within the US — it had been slated to premiere in India on April 9, but it had been pulled thanks to COVID-19. Fast & Furious 9 released June 25 within the US. Following a 45-day theatrical window, F9 is predicted in early August on video-on-demand within the US, which could hurt its India box office chances even more. Both The Forever Purge and therefore the Boss Baby: closed corporation released July 2 within the US, with the latter also on streaming service Peacock. Old is that the latest title here, having premiered July 23 in American cinemas.

While some studios in Warner Bros. released major titles in Tenet and woman 1984 last December in India, Universal Pictures chose to carry onto its titles. As a result, they need been delayed by over seven months at now . NBCUniversal is making the foremost of this new window though — cases are rising in parts across India, and there are concerns of an “inevitable” third wave. It’s still reacting to Warner it seems, given the DC owner announced on Tuesday that it had been bringing The Suicide Squad to Indian cinemas on August 5. Now each day later, Fast & Furious 9 has left that date and jumped fortnight . Meanwhile, Old will go up against The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me roll in the hay , making the Independence Day weekend a horror weekend for Hollywood films.

In a prepared statement, the studio said: “After a quick hiatus in people watching movies on the large screen thanks to the pandemic-induced-lockdown, NBCUniversal is ready to kickstart the magic of witnessing cinema at its absolute best . Starting 6th August, the brand during a treat to ardent cinephiles will release, on a mean 1-2 movies hebdomadally till the top of September. NBCUniversal has been eagerly expecting cinemas to reopen to supply its varied and exciting slate to Indian audiences in order that they can fully enjoy the theatrical experience that they need been missing.

“NBCUniversal features a robust library of upcoming titles, a number of them belonging to the most important franchises within the world, which are being eagerly awaited by audiences across the state . With fans excited as ever, these titles are doing the rounds of social media and making all the proper noises before their much-awaited release. The wait is simply a couple of days more as all the titles are going to be playing on the above-mentioned dates, at cinemas open in your city.”
