Cinemas in England won't be able to reopen until at least May 17 as part of the roadmap to lifting lockdown in the country.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined the roadmap this afternoon (February 22) in the House of Commons, and the news will be another huge blow to the cinema industry in England as it rules out a conventional release for some big movies.

Upcoming releases that will be affected by the delayed reopening of cinemas include Chaos Walking (March 5), Mortal Kombat (April 16) and Black Widow (May 5).
