Warner Bros announced new release dates for Wonder Woman 1984, Tenet and more films, causing other studios to shift release dates for upcoming films. A couple are moving up, some are pushing back, and we’ll have to wait a bit longer for others. Here’s the rundown.
Warner Bros. moved Wonder Woman 1984 from August 14 to October 2. This is the fourth rescheduling for the film, originally set for a December 13, 2019 release date.
