Paramount Animation's 'Rumble' Moves to February 2022, Becomes First May Release to Get Pandemic Delay

“Black Widow” and “F9” remain on May 2021 slate for now

Paramount announced Wednesday that it is moving the animated film “Rumble” from a release date on May 14 to February 18, 2022.

This makes the studio the first to move a film slated for release in May 2021, though it might not be the last as studios have been weighing whether or not to abandon hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic will subside enough for theaters to reopen nationwide in the second quarter of the year. Disney has already moved the live-action “101 Dalmatians” spinoff “Cruella” from theatrical release to Disney+ on Memorial Day weekend, but still has yet to move Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow” from its theatrical release slot on May 7.

Other films currently set for release in May include Universal’s “F9” and Lionsgate’s “Spiral.”
