The Monster Hunter release date has been pushed back by Sony from its September 4 Labor Day weekend date to next year.
Monster Hunter, starring Milla Jovovich, will now be released April 23, 2021.

The site further offers Los Angeles may get closed down again due to coronavirus fears, which means movie theaters would close, and then all the August movie release dates would have to get pushed back to the Fall. To boot, it's said if Los Angeles closes down movie theaters again, it would take theaters another month to reopen.
