Sony delays Marvel film ‘Morbius’ to April as omicron surges

The film starring Jared Leto in the title role has been
postponed several times during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its most recent planned
release date was Jan 28.

For movie theatre operators, the delay is a setback as they
try to rebound from extended closures during the COVID crisis.

Chains including AMC Entertainment, Cinemark Holdings Inc
and Cineworld Group have been celebrating blockbuster ticket sales for Sony’s
“Spider-Man: No Way Home.” While “No Way Home” is still
playing in cinemas, operators have few other big titles on their schedule until
spring.

The rapidly spreading omicron variant has raised new concern
about whether audiences will feel comfortable heading to theatres during the
pandemic.
