Gerard Butler's disaster movie Greenland has been the latest cinema casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Originally expected to arrive in cinemas on August 14 in the US and August 21 in the UK, the movie will be skipping cinemas and instead will be released on Premium Video On-Demand at some point before the end of the year in the US.
According to Deadline, Greenland will then air on HBO Max in 2021 with a deal worth a whopping $20 million – $30 million for the rights in the US.
Viewers in the UK can expect to see the movie on Amazon Prime Video at some point, though there has been no specific dates for a premiere on the streaming service.
The movie has been directed by Angel Has Fallen's Ric Roman Waugh, while the script is written by Chris Sparling and Mitchell LaFortune.
The official synopsis for Greenland reads: "A family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. John Garrity (Butler), his estranged wife Allison (Baccarin), and young son Nathan make a perilous journey to their only hope for sanctuary.
"Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being levelled by the comet's fragments, the Garrity's experience the best and worst in humanity.
"As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven."
