Warner Bros. Pictures’ WONDER WOMAN 1984 jumps into theatre AND HBO Max in U.S. on Christmas Day. Ho ho ho to all of us!!!
It’s a new world and HBO Max is thinking ahead with leveraging tent pole films and exclusive TV/Film that will be streaming exclusively on the new platform. Like so many of us in the USA and around the world grappling with Covid-19 they have made the astute business decision to do a hybrid release since the USA is still grappling with rising cases and many theatres remain close.
“As we navigate these unprecedented times, we’ve had to be innovative in keeping our businesses moving forward while continuing to super-serve our fans. This is an amazing film that really comes to life on the big screen and, working with our partners in the exhibition community, we will provide that option to consumers in the U.S. where theaters are open. We realize that a lot of consumers can’t go back to the movies due to the pandemic, so we also want to give them the option to see WONDER WOMAN 1984 via our HBO Max platform.”Ann Sarnoff, Chair and CEO, WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group,

Pictures announced yesterday that they will be simultaneously release the superhero tentpole film Wonder Woman 1984 starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins in theatres on December 16th and on HBO Max streaming platform (in the USA) on December 25th to no additional cost to subscribers. This is a blessing to fangirls, fanboys, blerds, geeks and other comic book, superhero action fans that have been anticipating the sequel to the runaway hit Wonder Woman as we shelter in place and wear our masks! It’s been too long since we’ve had Diana swinging that lasso taking down the Nazis! In the new film it’s a new century and decade of greed so Max Lord and the Cheetah are the devilish duo out for world domination and the only standing between them is our favorite Amazon!
