Gary Gray (The Fate of the Furious, Straight Outta Compton) starring Kevin Hart, which was originally going to be released on August 25. It has now been delayed to January 12, 2024. “A master thief is wooed by his ex-girlfriend and the FBI to pull off an impossible heist with his international crew on a 777 flying from London to Zurich,” reads the synopsis.

Damsel, a fantasy film starring Millie Bobby Brown and Angela Bassett, has been delayed to 2024 from its original release date of October 13, 2023. “A dutiful damsel agrees to marry a handsome prince, only to discover it was all a trap: the royal family recruited her as a sacrifice to repay an ancient debt,” reads the synopsis. “She is then thrown into a cave with a fire-breathing dragon, having to solely rely on her wits and will to survive.”

A Family Affair is a romantic comedy movie starring Zac Efron, Joey King, Nicole Kidman, Liza Koshy, and Kathy Bates.

That is until Chris falls in love with her mother.”

Players will also be delayed to next year. “New York sportswriter Mack (Gina Rodriguez) has spent years devising successful hook-up ‘plays’ with best friend Adam (Damon Wayans Jr.) and their crew,” according to the synopsis from What’s on Netflix. “When she unexpectedly falls head-over-heels for one of her targets (Tom Ellis), they all must learn what it takes to go from simply scoring to playing for keeps.”

Shirley, a biopic about Shirley Chisholm, starring Regina King, has been pushed back. Another movie getting pushed back is Spaceman, a science fiction drama starring Adam Sandler as the Czech Republic’s first astronaut.
