Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the only major release scheduled for its new window, meaning it should be able to do well in its opening weekend. Assuming the 2021 calendar stays the same, it won’t have to go head-to-head with a busy May roster that includes Black Widow, Godzilla vs. Kong, and F9. That said, there is no guarantee Ghostbusters: Afterlife sticks to this date.
Sony officially announced Ghostbusters: Afterlife will premiere on June 11, 2021. No reason was given for the latest delay, but the studio did point out that’s the same weekend the original Ghostbusters film debuted back in 1984, so that could have been a factor.
Daniel Craig is merely hopeful No Time to Die can come out next April, so it’s definitely possible there could be more changes down the line, depending on how the pandemic progresses over the next couple of months. Hopefully, things will improve in 2021 and theaters can welcome big new releases on a weekly basis again.
