More Release Date Madness As ‘The Matrix 4’ Moves To 2022, ‘Kong vs. Godzilla’ To May 2021

When Warner Bros. pushed Tenet back two weeks and Wonder Woman 1984 to October, we knew that couldn’t be the end of it. There would be further moves, and now we see more of the studio’s anticipated films, including The Matrix 4 and Godzilla vs. Kong, finding new homes.

Warner Bros. has pushed Lana Wachowski’s The Matrix 4 nearly a year, from May 21st 2021 to April 1st 2022. On that date it’ll be nearing a battle with Marvel’s Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, which opens a week prior.

And if we thought Junkie XL being named as composer of Godzilla vs. Kong was a sign it would stay put, we were very wrong. The fourth film in WB/Legendary’s MonsterVerse has taken over the May 21st 2021 date vacated by The Matrix 4.

Also, the Tom & Jerry movie has gone from December 23rd 2020 to March 5th 2021, while Robert Zemeckis’ adaptation of Roald Dah’s The Witches will now open on an unspecified date in 2021, rather than on October 9th 2020.

Phew. I’m sure this isn’t the end, either.
