The Hilary Swank-starring noir thriller and Neil Burger's YA sci-fi pic are the latest movies to be delayed amid challenges at the local multiplex.

Lionsgate is pushing back the release of the star-driven titles Fatale and Voyagers from this fall to 2021 amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.

The studio has moved Fatale, the Hilary Swank and Michael Ealy-starring noir thriller from The Intruder director Deon Taylor, to next year, likely in the first quarter of 2021.

The thriller about a married man (Ealy) who is tricked into a murder scheme by a seductive woman (Swank) with whom he had a one-night stand was originally set for an Oct. 30 release.

And Voyagers, the YA sci-fi thriller from director Neil Burger (Divergent) that stars Colin Farrell, is also delayed from Nov. 25 to next year amid the challenges at the local multiplex.

Lionsgate is following other Hollywood studios in announcing a raft of release date changes of high-profile films, or pushing the titles online, amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

Among the latest is MGM and Universal pushing the James Bond pic No Time To Die from its November 2020 release to spring 2021.
