Golden Screen Cinemas has announced in a social media post today (July 28) that Thor: Love And Thunder will not be screened in Malaysia after all, after an update by film’s distributors The Walt Disney Company (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.
“Please be informed that Disney has updated that Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love And Thunder will not be releasing in Malaysia after all,” the statement said.
Thor: Love And Thunder was originally scheduled to premiere in Malaysian cinemas on July 7. However, on July 1, it was announced that the movie had been postponed to July 21. Then on July 13, GSC announced that the movie had been postponed again, this time indefinitely, with no reason for the postponement given by Disney.
Now, it seems that the movie has gone the way of another Disney movie, Lightyear, which was taken off Malaysian cinema schedules in June.
At the time, the Malaysian Film Censorship Board (LPF) clarified that Disney were the ones who made the decision not to screen Lightyear here after refusing to comply with certain conditions, including removing certain parts which promote the LGBT lifestyle.
