Meanwhile, the much anticipated 'Fast and Furious 9: Fast Saga' which has a very captivating trailer scheduled for this year's summer has been postponed till next year April. Let us hope many of these flicks don't have their release dates postponed too.

A notable perspective to consider, however, is that the cinemas may remain closed till the end of the year and this leaves viewers with the choice of subscribing to VOD (video on demand) platforms e.g Netflix, Apple TV+, HBO, Prime Video etc.

But looking at the billions pumped as investments into these movies, one may really wonder how the producers and investors intend to profit adequately from their venture in the face of the current world health and economic conditions posed by the pandemic besides other factors.

How much fun do you expect? Which of these movies are you on the look out for? Feel free to drop your comments.

STAY SAFE. WISHING YOU ALL A FUN-FILLED NEW WEEK
