With Covid-19 on the rise, governments across the globe have declared that large groups of people should not gather, and that people should stay at home. This means concerts, festivals, and the filming of TV shows and movies have all been cancelled or postponed.

Most live events have been cancelled or postponed, like the 2020 Olympics, Met Gala, Broadway shows, and concerts from Miley Cirus, Billie Eilish, and many other artists. 

“I’m so sad to do this but we need to postpone these dates to keep everyone safe,” Eilish said in a statement. “We’ll let you know when they can be rescheduled. Please keep yourselves healthy. I love you.”

The range of TV shows that have met conflicts with Covid-19 are shows like Marvel’s “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”, “Supernatural”, and almost all of Netflix’s movies and TV series like “Stranger Things”. 

Money maker films like “A Quiet Place, Part II,” “Mulan,” “The New Mutants,” “Antlers,” and many more were postponed because of the spread of Covid-19.

The director of both A Quiet Place films, John Krasinski tweeted, “Well due to the ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us, now is not the right time to do that…As insanely excited we all are for you to see this movie…I’m gonna wait to release the film til we CAN all see it together!…”

However, with all these films, shows, and events being postponed, that means that it’s only a matter of time before all these events are rescheduled and that films and shows start filming again.

Just because films and performances have been cancelled, doesn’t stop the people that would be in them from letting the world know things will be okay. An example of this is John Krasinski’s “Some Good News.” In this series of videos posted on Youtube by Krasinki, Krasinski shares the power of good news with viewers and devotes all his news to the good.
