As studios face the stark reality that cinemas will remain closed for at least the next couple of months (and likely longer), the companies are making sweeping changes to their release schedules. Universal has already shifted around some of its big titles (including No Time To Die) and is now turning its attention to one of the lesser-known (but no less exciting) movies: Bob Odenkirk action-thriller Nobody.

Yes, the film that promises to do for the star of Better Call Saul what Taken did for Liam Neeson, is on the move. Originally set for 14 August this year, it'll now land on 26 February 2021.

Nobody, directed by Ilya Naishuller, finds Odenkirk as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated and overlooked dad and husband, taking life’s indignities on the chin and never pushing back.

When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. His teenage son, Blake (Gage Munroe), is disappointed in him and his wife, Becca (Connie Nielsen), seems to pull only further away. The aftermath of the incident strikes a match to Hutch’s long-simmering rage, triggering dormant instincts and propelling him on a brutal path that will surface dark secrets and lethal skills.

The move for Nobody has a ripple effect on another Universal offering in the works: M. Night Shyamalan's latest film, which doesn't currently have a title. And now, a release date. They'll have to be careful, or he'll be calling Saul...
