Paramount has delayed Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse to February 26, 2021. The new release date allows it to avoid Wonder Woman 1984, which was delayed to the film’s original release date of October 2 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Deadline reports.
This is the latest in a number of film delays, including Paramount’s own Tenet (which was delayed to August 12) and Disney’s Mulan (which was delayed to August 21). However, those films were delayed due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and Without Remorse was delayed in an attempt to have less box-office competition.
The film, starring Michael B. Jordan and directed by Stefano Sollima, follows a Navy SEAL as he attempts to avenge his wife’s murder and is caught up in a large conspiracy. Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse now competes with action thriller Nobody from director Ilya Naishuller, starring Bob Odenkirk.
