Boss Level, the latest from Narc and The Grey director Joe Carnahan, has been sitting around waiting for a distributor since 2019. The sci-fi action flick that stars Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson was originally scheduled to arrive in August 2019, but it missed its release date and has been without a home ever since Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures, who purchased the film in 2018, dropped it.

Are you ready to purchase Spider-Man themed toys from a Disney theme park, even if that theme park isn’t fully open? Very soon, you’ll be able to do just that.
Like nearly all American companies, The Walt Disney Company has been significantly hit by the coronavirus pandemic, with analysts estimating this past summer that Disney could lose as much as a billion dollars a month because of theme park closures.
