The spreading Delta variant continues to tamper with film distribution. The latest movie to shift its release strategy is The Addams Family 2, which will now launch as a video-on-demand rental on the same day as it opens in theaters.
MGM’s ghoulish sequel is scheduled to come out on October 1, tying into the Halloween season. It is released by United Artists Releasing, a joint venture between MGM and Annapurna Pictures.
The film is officially set to open in theaters against Sony’s Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. However, it was reported last week that Sony is nearing a $100 million-plus deal to send the feature to streaming platform Amazon Prime Video.
