On the handshake-free red carpet, chatter about the illness — which has halted the film's China release completely and threatens its international box office as theaters close and wary moviegoers stay home — ran rampant, but the disease seems to not have been enough to delay or alter the film's release date as it did for the latest James Bond installment.
"It's obviously a tricky situation and day-to-day, but all we can do is hope everyone stays healthy and audiences around the world are able to see it because we want people to see it — but it's an unprecedented, tricky situation," producer Chris Bender told about the film's release plans.
