SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES, DUNKIRK, & VALERIAN Release Dates Delayed In China

While Spider-Man: Homecoming remains a billion-dollar hopeful, its journey to the elusive milestone marker just got a little harder as it's being reported that it will receive a delayed release in China.

By all accounts, Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming is a monumental hit, having already crossed over $144 million domestic, $283.79 million worldwide after opening just last week. With a spectacular start like that, a $1 billion final gross is certainly in the realm of possibility, but based on a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, it looks like the film's billion-dollar dreams may have just taken a pretty major hit. 


According to THR, Spider-Man: Homecoming has yet to receive an official release date in China, which seemingly suggests that the country has reinstated their strict summer blackout rules, meaning it's now looking increasingly unlikely the Jon Watts-directed feature opens in the Middle Kingdom until at least August. This move might also just be the biggest difference maker in the film's potential billion-dollar run as China has previously proven to be quite fruitful for Spidey films, including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which grossed over $94 million there back in 2014.

Other films that are being delayed include Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes, Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, which isn't expected to open in China until September. Also, with the lack of an iconic character on the same caliber as Spidey, it can be reasonably assumed that these three films may be more significantly impacted by this delayed cash flow from the world's second largest box office.

So, what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!


A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
