On October 31, a representative from “Melancholia” stated, “After one of the production staff tested positive for COVID-19, the entire cast and crew got PCR tests. Three other staff members tested positive but everyone else tested negative.”
The representative continued, “As safety comes first, in order to ensure a safe production, we have made the decision to delay the premiere. We made this decision after reviewing the production situation and so that viewers can have the smoothest viewing experience possible.”
