The gradual reopening of cinemas is a promising sign for the film industry, which deferred numerous blockbuster releases over and over all through 2020 in order to make a debuting them on the big screen. With COVID-19 limitations backing off, late pandemic-time box office hits like “Godzilla vs. Kong,” “Mortal Kombat” and “Demon Slayer” have demonstrated that crowds are excited to get back to cinemas.
