The studio also said that The Forever Purge has been delayed to July 9th, 2021. The film was indefinitely delayed in May this year.
Universal’s moves come with most North American cinemas having been closed for nearly four months, with major chains having pushed back re-openings until the end of July. AMC recently said it now expects to open 450 of its more than 600 theaters on July 30. It hopes to be essentially fully operational by early August.
