Cinemas struggle amid coronavirus pandemic


Los Angeles (US)/Beijing (China), Oct 20 (EFE), (Camera: Javier Romualdo/Sebastião Moreir).- Without any major releases scheduled between now and the end of the year, cinemas are dying on their feet. James Bond’s latest, No Time To Die, Black Widow, West Side Story and Dune has all been slated to premiere this fall but their respective studios have decided to put the release on hold due to the pandemic. Only Wonder Woman 1984 is due to hit the silver screen this Christmas period after being postponed several times. A number of films destined for cinematic releases will now be offered on digital streaming sites instead. Although countries like China have managed to somewhat recover the industry with the pandemic largely under control, the rest of the world is wondering what will be left of it once Covid-19 subsides.
