Entering into its fourth month, the pandemic brought the world to a complete standstill. That meant the postponement of practically every single film production. But things are finally looking up. 

With lockdown restrictions being eased all over the globe, the films we’ve all been looking forward to finally have set new release dates. Theatres are mostly open, so yes, we will soon be able to see Rami Malek on the big screen again.

The hotly-anticipated Bond film, No Time to Die, in which Malek plays a treacherous villain, just announced a November release date. The film was originally expected to be out this past April.  

The 007 feature is just one of many movies that shifted their release dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. But, in the last weeks, a slew of productions have resumed, and many announced soon-approaching release dates. We’ve rounded up what we’re looking forward to the most
