UPDATED, April 1: Sony is going a week later with Uncharted , its adaptation of the PlayStation video game starring Tom Holland, on February 18, 2022 instead of February 11. The pic will have access to Imax and PLF screens at that time. Uncharted goes up against Paramount’s Rumble and Universal/Endeavor Content’s Ambulance on the new date, leaving behind Universal’s Jennifer Lopez-Owen Wilson romantic comedy Marry Me and 20th Century Studios’ Death on the Nile on February 11. Why the move for Uncharted ? I hear it’s to get the movie off of Super Bowl weekend, which falls on February 13 next year, so the Sony event film has some breathing room.

The Uncharted movie has faced another setback, though thankfully it is not as dramatic as we are used to, with the project's release date being pushed back a week to February 18, 2022, having been previously given a date of February 11. While this is just a short delay, fans awaiting the adaptation will no doubt let out an exhausted sigh, as the movie was originally set for release way back in June 2016, before pushed to June 2017, then December 2020, then to March 2021, before being delayed again until October 2021. Uncharted was then moved up to July 16, 2021, before finally settling on February 2022. Phew. This latest release date shift is one of several small delays for upcoming Sony Pictures releases, including the one-week delay for comic book movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage and a two-month delay for another video game adaptation, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City .

When Covid -19 touched down in the U.S. last year, reality wasn’t safe from the virus’ grasp and neither was fiction. As frontline workers and medical personnel worked tirelessly to care for coronavirus victims and stop the spread, showrunners and executive producers behind TV’s most popular medical dramas thrust the pandemic into primetime. Now a year into the historical health crisis that has killed more than 538,000 people nationwide, Deadline spoke with medical drama showrunners who reflect on the discussions that led to their coverage of the coronavirus, how they advanced a story that still has no end and where their shows will go from here. “I have never written about something while we were in the midst of it, and certainly not in a way where I don’t know what tomorrow’s going to bring,” said The Good Doctor executive producer/showrunner David Shore . “Frankly, that’s a challenge I hope I don’t face again.” Related Story Zoom Stock, Phone … [Read more...] about A Primetime Pandemic: Medical Drama Showrunners Reflect On “Moral Imperative” To Address Covid-19 On-Screen
As the CEO of Jettly, a private jet charter service, Justin Crabbe has facilitated countless types of travel over the years. But over the past two months, a new category has emerged: coronavirus medical tourism, which involves traveling outside your home state to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. “We are seeing this quite often across the United States,” says Crabbe. “Even travelers from select European countries are flying to the USA to get vaccinated.” After researchers managed to develop a safe and effective Covid-19 vaccine in record time, it wasn’t too much of a leap to think that the rollout would be similarly swift. Clearly, that has not been the case, prompting some people to be more proactive about their vaccination, crossing borders to receive their doses of the vaccine sooner than they would at home.
