International movies that were shelved due to the Covid-19 pandemic are scheduled to come back to cinemas starting from July.

Live-action flick Mulan, previously set for March release, will now be released on July 23. Likewise Black Widow, the Marvel film that would've kickstarted this year's summer blockbusters, opens on Nov 5 in Malaysia. Wonder Woman 1984 has also been pencilled in for an August 13 premiere.

But not all films were postponed. The new movie in the Halloween franchise, Halloween Kills starring Jamie Lee Curtis, and Escape Room 2 will be released close to their original dates - Oct 15 and Dec 30, respectively.

The same goes for Monster Hunter, a fantasy flick based on the video game series of the same name, which arrives at Malaysian cinemas on August 27, a week earlier than in the US.

One of the first international films to play at cinemas in Malaysia will be the fifth film in the Purge franchise, which opens on July 9.

Meanwhile, some movies like Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Raya And The Last Dragon and F9 - previously slated for release this year - have been moved to next year.

If the cinemas in Malaysia are not opened by July the latest, the distributors said they will adapt accordingly.

Below are the tentative release dates for some major big titles:

  • Tenet, July 16
  • Mulan, July 23
  • Wonder Woman 1984, August 13
  • A Quiet Place 2, Sept 3
