Vin Diesel's Bloodshot will be hitting the screens once again as the theatres in the US prepare to reopen from next week.

Prominent theatre chain AMC has announced that the film, which had to stop its theatrical run in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be back in its cinema houses on 20 August.

Here is AMC's announcement

However, it is not clear how many theatres will actually be open by the time Bloodshot re-releases. Many states in the US are still in lockdown.

Directed by David SF Wilson, the superhero film was adapted from the Valiant Comics title of the same name.
