What do rock bands do when they’ve run out of new songs? They release a greatest hits album, of course. For the film industry, it’s pretty much the same.
The pandemic forced movie theaters in most countries to close indefinitely in March. Hollywood studios subsequently delayed the theatrical releases of their blockbuster movies that were scheduled to come out this summer. Though many theaters around the world have since reopened (with reduced capacity), they now have nothing new to show audiences.
So they’re playing the hits.
