Cinema giants delay reopening in United Kingdom and USA as movie releases stall

Hollywood studios have also pushed back the debut of new releases, with "Mulan" and "Tenet" for example now scheduled only for August.

The world's second-largest cinema chain had previously announced cinemas in both countries would open on 10 July. It's made a further announcement that rather than pushing for a July 10 opening, as it had originally stated, the chain will not now open its doors until July 31 in England.

In a statement, the company said the move was "in line with recent adjustments to the schedule of upcoming movie releases".

The Mooky Greidinger-run Cineworld confirmed its new target on Tuesday, just days after Warner Bros.

He signed for the club from Liverpool after a series of loan spells and has made 20 appearances so far this season. He's expected to make a full recovery and could leave hospital in two or three days.

As the government's lockdown restrictions ease up, British cinemas will once again be allowed to open this weekend from 4 July. "With the ongoing pandemic, this new date remains subject to final confirmation".

However, some key U.S. territories, such New York City and Los Angeles, are yet to pass legislation permitting such a reopening, and other states have again shuttered businesses over the past few days following fears accelerated reopenings have led to an increase in infections.

Around 450 films have been made available to United Kingdom exhibitors when they reopen, including a remastered 4K version of "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back", "Trolls World Tour" and a handful of new domestic films, but the main attraction for cinema-goers is undoubtedly new releases such as "Tenet" and "Mulan".
