Lionsgate has announced that it's postponed the releases of the Saw reboot Spiral: From The Book of Saw and Janelle Monáe-led horror film Antebellum, as well as Sarah Paulson thriller Run.

Antebellum was set to be released on April 24, Run was set for May 8, and Spiral was set for May 15, but all three are now undated due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Spiral: From The Book of Saw stars Chris Rock, Samuel L Jackson and Max Minghella as three detectives who investigate a series of grisly murders that are "eerily reminiscent of the city's gruesome past".

The film's first trailer was released last month.

Antebellum sees singer Monáe take on her first lead film role after previously starring in Moonlight and providing the voice of Peg in Lady and the Tramp.

The postponements follow that of films including No Time to Die, Mulan, A Quiet Place: Part II, The New Mutants, Peter Rabbit 2 and Fast & Furious 9, as well as the closure of UK cinemas.

Here's a comprehensive look at how the crisis is affecting the movie and TV industry.
