movies delayed or moved to other formats (e.g. streaming services) due to COVID-19

Some movies have been delayed and others have skipped the theater. Some are because theaters everywhere/almost everywhere are closed and for others, there are production delays/stoppages.

The below is nowhere near a complete list. Discuss/add others.

Here are a few:

Tom Hanks disappointed with Apple TV+ 'Greyhound' release ... nd-release
Originally intended for a theatrical release, Greyhound is instead being offered through the Apple-owned streaming service, due to COVID-19 social distancing measures closing theaters around the world. The move to the small screen for a production meant for theaters has led to disappointment for Hanks who refers to the change in plans as "an absolute heartbreak" in an interview with the Guardian.

"I don't mean to make angry my Apple overlords, but there is a difference in picture and sound quality," offers Hanks.

Apple reportedly picked up the movie from Sony Pictures for around $70 million in an auction handled by CAA Media Finance and FilmNation.
