Upcoming New Movies: Calendar for the 2021 Release Date

The release dates are subject to change.

2021 movie release dates

It’s not uncommon for movie release dates to jump around on the calendar, but we’ve experienced a number of unique circumstances caused by COVID-19. Many films that finally arrived in 2021 should be out in 2020, and while a vaccine is already rolling out around the world, studios don’t know when people will be comfortable when they return to theaters.

With that in mind, we have a list of release dates that can change a lot, especially at the beginning of 2021. We have also determined where a theatrical release is the day and date with a streaming release, as will be the case with all Warner Bros. movies in 2021 if they are simultaneously released on HBO Max.

We will keep this calendar updated with the latest information as soon as we receive it.
