We told you today that the latest James Bond flick ‘No Time to Die’ was being pushed back until November, due to Coronavirus fears. It’s a move several studios might make with some of their big films, depending on how much this virus spreads.
But some studios are still taking the risk. Disney is not backing down. They still plan to release the live-action ‘Mulan‘ remake later this month on March 27.
And according to the early tracking reports, it’s expected to perform very well.
According to early estimates, the live-action remake should collect $85 million when it debuts in U.S. theaters on March 27, though some tracking services predict that number could reach above $90 million.
A $90 million opening would be a solid start. I know a $90 million opening would be AMAZING for most films, but for a movie like ‘Mulan’ it’s simply solid, ’cause it was made on a $200 million budget.
Disney has to hope it does well across the globe as well, which might be challenging because of the Coronavirus. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. It’ll be the first big test for a major studio going up against this virus.[mashshare]
