Wonder Woman 1984 is delaying its release again, this time from Oct. 2 to Dec. 25 as the U.S. box office struggles to recover amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.
The shift doesn't impact the Dec. 18 date for Denis Villeneuve's Dune, which Warner Bros. is releasing on behalf of Legendary.
Wonder Woman's delay is a major blow for theater owners, since there now won't be a new Hollywood tentpole hitting the big screen until November.
Warner insiders say they reached the decision amid the ongoing uncertainty as to when cinemas in such major markets such as New York City and Los Angeles will reopen. As of now, about 35 percent of the domestic marketplace remains dark in terms of moviegoing.
