Disney has announced that the studio's two upcoming titles -- superhero movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Ryan Reynolds' Free Guy -- will be released exclusively in theatres.
Both films will have a 45-day exclusive run in cinemas after which they will become available on video-on-demand and streaming.
Free Guy, which comes from Disney-owned 20th Century Studios, will be released in the US on August 13, while the Simu Liu-starrer Shang-Chi will premiere three weeks later on September 3.
The production representative also mentioned that they can see "recent signs of increased confidence" among audiences for the moviegoing experience.

Jungle Cruise joins Emma Stone-starrer Cruella and Marvel Studios' Black Widow, featuring Scarlett Johansson, to have same day release in theatres and on OTT.
