Classic remakes in 2020

Although many movies this year have moved their release dates to 2021 or have made them available for streaming, there are at least two classic movie remakes that still plan to be released in 2020 despite the global pandemic.

Kenneth Branagh returns as Agatha Christie's Belgian detective Hercule Poirot in Death on the Nile. This remake of the 1978 classic about a the mysterious murder of a passenger aboard a cruise is set to hit theaters on October 23, 2020. As in his release of  the remake Murder on the Orient Express in 2017, Branagh also returns as director of the new film.

When West Side Story, a Broadway show by Arthur Laurents, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, hit movie theaters in 1961, it garnered critical acclaim and plenty of awards. With home entertainment, this mid-20th century retelling of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet has remained a delight for generations. This year's remake is directed by Steven Spielberg and will arrive in theaters on December 18, 2020
