NOTE: This post will continue to be updated until the end of May 2020, as movie release dates change, newer trailers drop, sometimes within weeks of the scheduled release date
Normally — not these times right now — when theaters are open, this post would have been made about 45 days prior to all theatrical releases. The studios are changing movie release dates so frequently right now, we waited until the end of April to publish this post.
As of this writing, there are only *2* movies scheduled to open in theaters and, at least in our area, no theaters are open anywhere. Washington State has a stay at home order that runs until May 4, 2020.
Just for reference, I’ve left in details of the other 9 movies that were originally scheduled to be released in theaters on May 2020 as well as where they will be showing if announced.
The following are movie trailers and my anticipation on a scale from 0 (no interest) to 10 (highest interest in seeing).
