‘The Green Knight’ pulled from UK release calendar due to Covid – Deadline
Delivery time He confirmed that the decision was made by the UK distribution company Entertainment Film Distributors (EFD) and that the US release will go ahead as planned on July 30.
We are told that the move was made due to the coronavirus situation in the UK, which looks very risky at the moment.
The state removed nearly all restrictions on July 19, but that coincided with an increase in the delta variable and numbers approaching 50,000 per day, raising fears of another shutdown. But as things stand, cinemas are open for business and there is no indication that they will be closed again.
EFD typically supports its UK releases with significant marketing spending, so it would be concerned that further disruption could affect the viability of a major cinema release. The country is also in the middle of a heat wave that tends to affect takeovers.
