7 Movies COMING TO THEATERS in August 2020 with 9 Rescheduled

The New Mutants are due in theaters August 28

Can’t wait any longer to post what’s coming in August, can we?

Today, the first of August, theaters should have been open all across the United States. With the exception of some drive-ins and scattered independent theaters, that’s not the reality.

The new date for the big three theater chains to reopen 80% of the theater – as of this writing anyway — is scheduled to be August 21 (see: Regal Cinemas now saying August 21 it will reopen in US, Tenet goes international first, then US).

Below you’ll find the movies listed as being released in theaters before month’s end as well as the streaming and VOD movies and at the bottom the movies that were originally planned to be released in August and delayed along with the current release dates, if known.

As has been the case since the end of March 2020, all titles are very subject to change.

For historical reference, I’m including the films originally planned along with their rescheduled release dates, several have been pushed to 2021.

  1. I’m looking forward to ‘Words on Bathroom Walls’! The original release date was August 7th, 2020. Then the premiere was pushed forward to July 31st, 2020. Recently, the premiere was pushed back to August 21st, 2020.

      1. According to IMDB, the film was given a theatrical release. I have not heard of ‘Words on Bathroom Walls’ being placed on VOD. Do you know if the VOD date is different from the theatrical one?

      2. According to Deadline article on July 30, 2020: “LD Entertainment and Roadside Attractions have moved the release date of the forthcoming Words On Bathroom Walls. The feature based on Julia Walton’s YA novel will now open nationwide in theaters August 21, pushing its debut from the originally slated date of August 7. The companies have also dropped a clip of the film.”

        So MovieInsider.com info is outdated. Not the first time I’ve seen that. Somewhat understandable in the present times when every day something seems to be changing involving movie releases, theater reopening dates, etc.
