Though movie theaters likely aren't going to be back at their normal operating capacity in this first half of 2021, that's not stopping Warner Bros. That's because of their new release plan to send all of their movies into theaters and onto HBO Max simultaneously.

However, there was no specific reason given to this new release date or whether this is the result of the recent legal clash between the two studios over Godzilla vs. Kong and Dune.

Warner Bros. moved the release date of Godzilla vs. Kong from May to March yesterday evening, but we still haven't actually seen a trailer for the movie. Such was the case with Godzilla vs. Kong, a $200 million project that was largely paid for by Legendary Pictures.

A sequel to 2019's Godzilla: King of the Monsters and 2017's Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla vs. Kong stars Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, and Brian Tyree Henry.

Meanwhile, Legendary is still working with WarnerMedia to figure out some kind of agreement regarding the release of Denis Villeneuve's adaptation of Dune. As of now, the movie will release on October 1.

It's not uncommon for Hollywood to shift release dates around even when there isn't a risky illness sweeping across the planet. We'll have to wait and see.

That new strategy had been a sticking point with production company Legendary Entertainment, which financed the majority of Godzilla vs. Kong's budget and was reportedly blindsided by Warner's shift to streaming releases.
