  • Just three weeks ahead of its theatrical debut, Disney has decided to pull Twentieth Century Studios’ The King’s Man from its September 18th release.
  • Now, the film will hit theaters on February 26, 2021.
  • Deadline reports that fans shouldn’t be worried about the switch as a sign Disney isn’t behind the movie or that the company is heading in a new direction for their big film releases.
  • Instead, the reason for delaying the movie is more to do with the number of theaters open, both domestically and internationally.
  • Hopefully by February, New York and Los Angeles markets will be open again allowing for a successful premiere.
