With movie theatres closed amid the ongoing pandemic, our homes have been turned into a cinema in the time of coronavirus, with many films available on VOD or to stream earlier than expected. But those are largely movies that had the unlucky timing of dropping right before social distancing descended upon the nation.

The films slated to arrive in theatres through March, April and May, however, are a different story, and so release dates have been officially postponed for “Black Widow”, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” and “Wonder Woman 1984″, as well as “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”, Pixar’s “Soul” and many, many more.

Below, ET has compiled a handy guide to keep track of the changing release dates, which we will be updating as soon as new dates are announced.
