Richard Trenholm was CNET's film and TV editor, covering the big screen, small screen and streaming. A member of the Film Critic's Circle, he's covered technology and culture from London's tech scene to Europe's refugee camps to the Sundance film festival.
In 2020, before the Avatar and Star Wars sagas begin again, Disney will still be in theaters at Christmas thanks to 101 Dalmatians reboot Cruella and Steven Spielberg's West Side Story remake.
Disney also announced new and adjusted release dates for various Marvel films, live action reboots and other productions. Among the changes to the Marvel-related lineup, the planned Gambit movie is finally dead while troubled X-Men flick New Mutants is delayed yet again to March 2020.
