Ghostbusters: Afterlife Delayed - Again - To June 2021

When it was announced back in March that Ghostbusters: Afterlife had been moved from July 10, 2020 to March 5, 2021 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic shuttering movie theaters, I thought that Sony's choice for a new date was rather strange. A big "Summer Blockbuster" opening in the Spring seems like a really dumb idea.

Even when the movie was set to be released in July 2020, I thought that it wasn't the ideal date. Unlike the 2016 film, Afterlife is meant to follow (and be a tribute to) the original movies, which opened on June 8th and 16th, respectively. Afterlife should have always had a release date centered around those films, and now it does!

Variety has just reported that Afterlife is now set to be released on June 11, 2021. Of course, that's the plan right now. Given the unpredictability of coronavirus and audiences' apprehension to go to the movies amid a global health crisis, there's no telling if the new release date will stick. Let's hope the world has its shit together by then. If not, let's just put it out on 4K and Blu-ray, and convert the overpriced and outdated movie theaters into affordable housing apartment buildings.
