Sony’s Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway pushed back to August

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (formerly named as Coronavirus) outbreak that has been affecting people and businesses globally, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Sony Pictures will also be taking cues from other studios as they have officially decided to change the release date for the upcoming live-action comedy sequel Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway. Originally set to debut in theaters on March 27, the film has now been pushed back to August 7, 2020, over four months later than the previous release date. The new date will see the James Corden-led film go up against two different genres: Antoine Fuque’s sci-fi film Infinite starring Mark Wahlberg and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and 20th Century Studios’ supernatural horror film The Empty Man.

Peter Rabbit 2 is the fourth film this month that had been rescheduled due to the COVID-19 crisis. This includes the highly-anticipated Bond film No Time to Die which was the first one that was pushed back last week, followed by Trolls World Tour as it moved up to take No Time to Die’s original slot, and yesterday’s Dave Bautista-led comedy My Spy.

In Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, the lovable rogue is back. Bea, Thomas, and the rabbits have created a makeshift family, but despite his best efforts, Peter can’t seem to shake his mischievous reputation. Adventuring out of the garden, Peter finds himself in a world where his mischief is appreciated, but when his family risks everything to come looking for him, Peter must figure out what kind of bunny he wants to be.

James Corden will once again lead the voice cast as the voice of Peter Rabbit with Margot Robbie and Elizabeth Debicki returning as the voices of Flopsy Rabbit and Mopsy Rabbit. Domhnall Gleeson and Rose Byrne will also be reprising their roles as Thomas and Bea. The sequel will also be featuring the addition of Emmy nominee David Oyelowo.

Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway will again be written and directed by Will Gluck, who co-wrote the screenplay with Patrick Burleigh. It is produced by Gluck and Zareh Nalbandian with Doug Belgrad, Jodi Hildebrand, Catherine Bishop, Emma Topping, Thomas Merrington and Jonathan Hludzinski serving as executive producers.

The first film earned mixed reviews from critics, but grossed over $320 million worldwide, surpassing similar family franchise Paddington 2, which grossed over $225 million at the global box office and holds a 100% “Certified Fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes.
