When movie theaters dimmed their lights due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, our homes became a cinema in the time of coronavirus, with a number of films debuting on VOD or streaming much earlier than expected. Most of the movies slated to arrive throughout 2020, however, were bumped to a later date.

Black Widow and No Time to Die, as well as upcoming sequels to Ghostbusters and Top Gun, were among the many, many films that saw their original release dates come and go. Below, ET has compiled a comprehensive guide to keep track of the changing release dates, now that the world is (finally!) returning to some semblance of normalcy and it's high time to get back to the movies.
