A total of seven blockbusters announced Thursday that they will postpone their release dates as the country is suffering pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus.

The movies, including "Detective Chinatown 3," "Lost in Russia," "Leap" and "Legend of Deification," were scheduled to hit Chinese cinemas during the upcoming Spring Festival, or the Chinese Lunar New Year.

Concerns over the safety of watching movies in cinemas, usually considered as a confined space with the risk of virus transmission, have increased amid the spreading of the country's novel coronavirus-related pneumonia.

The country has reported 571 confirmed cases and 17 deaths as of Wednesday, and a total of 393 suspected cases have been reported, according to the official statistics.
