Cinema Releases 6 March 2020 – Onward to Fantasy Island?

The coronavirus has delayed the new James Bond film from its planned April release to a new November slot. Whether any other movies will follow suit is anyone’s guess. In any case its business as usual this week with horror film Fantasy Island and animated adventure Onward both arriving in UK cinemas. Let’s take a both of those films along with the rest of the week’s offerings. So without further ado these are the cinema releases 6 March 2020 for the UK & USA.

Final Thought – Cinema Releases 6 March 2020 & Box Office

There’s nothing of real interest amongst this week’s new movie offerings from our perspective. That said no doubt some will enjoy the rather cringeworthy looking Military Wives.

Meanwhile The Invisible Man takes the top spot at both UK and US box offices with takings over 2.1m & $28.2m respectively.
