Coronavirus Prompts IMAX to Postpone Chinese New Year Film Slate

IMAX Corporation has released a statement regarding its decision to postpone the theatrical releases planned for the upcoming Chinese New Year holiday in China amid the Coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan and other centres.

“The safety of Chinese audiences is our top priority. IMAX supports the decision to postpone the release of the Chinese New Year film slate and believes it to be the best course of action in an unfortunate situation. We remain excited about these films, given the strong box office projections and pre-sale figures heading into this weekend. We have every expectation that these films will be released in 2020 and that audience demand for these releases will remain high. Our thoughts are with the Chinese people, for whom we wish a swift resolution to this issue and a safe and healthy Chinese New Year.”
