Hollywood is reeling from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, which has closed cinemas around the world and almost wiped out box office takings.
Cineworld confirmed plans to temporarily close its theatres in Ireland, UK and US due to a lack of new releases. The Regal chain followed suit, while Odeon and Vue have shared their concerns over the situation.
On Monday, sci-fi epic Dune became the latest film to vacate its 2020 release date, following on from last week's news that James Bond flick No Time To Die would also no longer arrive this year.
It has been pushed from November to April 2021. Speaking about the delay Daniel Craig said it was the right decision to delay the movie.
"This thing is just bigger than all of us," he said. "We just want people to go and see this movie in the right way and in a safe way."
