The Japanese film industry's response to the COVID-19 crisis has ranged from theater closures to business as usual — or as usual as possible when many of us are glued to Netflix and satisfying our movie addiction without visiting real cinemas.

Distributors have been postponing the releases of some films, despite the school spring break normally being a peak box-office period. Disney's "Mulan," Paramount's "Sonic the Hedgehog," Pixar's "Onward," Greta Gerwig's "Little Women" and the James Bond thriller "No Time to Die" are among the films so affected by the situation.

Other films, such as "Fukushima 50," about the March 2011 Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant disaster, have opened as planned, just minus the usual stage introductions and other PR events.
