The spread of COVID-19 has had a massive impact on many aspects of our daily lives. However, one of areas that may affect us all in terms of enjoyment is through the movie industry. All of us interact with it in some way, whether we are working in it in some capacity or enjoying the content that emerges from it. Here is how the 2020 film industry is changing.

1 What Do Current Events Mean for the Movie Industry in 2020?

Postponed Releases

There should have been films released so far this year. In fact, the release of some of the biggest blockbusters of the year has been pushed back. By taking a look at news outlets like Celeb Network, we get an idea about just how much has been pushed back.

This, of course, does not mean that these movies have been cancelled. It is incredibly likely that we will see these films reach us one day. However, it might mean that their release is a little atypical. Whether films forgo the traditional glitzy premieres, or they only have a limited release, we can expect them to not have a typical release that we have to expect from the film industry.

Halted Production

The upcoming films are not the only ones that have been halted by COVID-19. Any films that have currently been in production have been halted for the safety of the cast and crew working on them. This could have massive ramifications across the industry.

Any prep that the cast has put into their role will have to be repeated so they are in the same shape as when production initially began. The crew will have to make a brilliant job on their hands to make sure continuity is the same between the two filming periods. With TV and film crews alike having halted production, it will be interesting to see how the industry picks up again.


Streaming services have boomed. A lot of consumers have spent their time at home, and this has led to a massive consumption of streaming services. Many production companies are also choosing to release through streaming services as they cannot have the traditional release.

The best example of this was Trolls World Tour. Their producers decided to release the film through a streaming service instead of postponing the release. This was met with delight from fans, and they have had massive success from releasing in this way. Other film-makers may wish to follow suit in the coming months.

While the current global situation has certainly upset the film industry, adaptations have been made that could make all the difference in the future. No matter what films you have your eyes on in the future, we will see them brought to life eventually. Make sure you keep an eye on showbiz and film news moving forward. It won’t be long before we get more news about what could be happening in the future and what further changes this could bring for the film industry as a whole.
