Sony has delayed the release of seven major movies, including the latest Ghostbusters instalment and the Spider-Man spin-off, Moribus.

The Hollywood studio has decided to postpone the release of the big titles as the coronavirus continues to devastate the entertainment industry.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which stars Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, McKenna Grace, and Finn Wolfhard, won't hit US cinemas until March 5, 2021. It was originally slated for release on July 10 of this year.

Morbius, the latest of Sony's films based on Spider-Man villains starring Jared Leto, has been pushed back from July 31, 2020, to March 19, 2021. 

Greyhound, the World War II film starring Tom Hanks, who was one of the first high profile actors to reveal he had coronavirus, will no longer make its June premiere and has yet to be given a new release date.

Kevin Hart's Fatherhood has been moved from January 2021 to October next year.

Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway has been delayed for a second time. Originally supposed to be released this March, it was moved to August as the scale of the coronavirus crisis became clear. However, it has been moved again and will now be released on January 15, 2021.

Video game adaption Uncharted will miss its March 2021 date and instead arrive in October of that year.

And an untitled film from Sony and Marvel has been moved to an unspecified date instead of opening on October 8 2021.

These release dates are for the US only. Release dates for Ireland have yet to be confirmed - we will let you know as soon as we have them. 

As Hollywood continues to count the cost of the Covid-19 pandemic some experts have estimated that final cost to the entertainment industry could reach 10 of billions of dollars.

Other highly-anticipated releases that have been pushed back include Daniel Craig's last outing as James Bond in No Time to Die, Disney blockbusters Mulan and Black Widow, and A Quiet Place II and Fast & Furious 9.
