2020 has not been the best year for anyone especially when dealing with a pandemic that can not only take lives, but also kills any source of fun. In case you didn’t know, Warner Bros announced that the upcoming DC comics movie Wonder Woman 1984 will be in theaters and HBO max for Christmas this year, December 25th, 2020.
Besides this movie, Warner Bros also made an announcement for the future as we prepare for 2021. As we continue to fight Covid-19, some people wants to go back to enjoying life such as going to places and others want to do the same, but at the comfort at home. According to the news at IGN, Warner Bros made a statement that wants to keep their audiences entertained whether they are at home or public places. Rather than waiting for all theaters to open up, Warner Bros announced that starting in 2021, they are planning to release their movies in theaters AND in HBO Max. In short, if you want to see upcoming movies like Wonder Woman 1984, Tom and Jerry or the new Mortal Kombat movie, you have options. If you are subscribed to the streaming service HBO Max, viewers can watch these movies at home. If you choose not or you don’t have a subscription, fans can still watch these movies at theaters.
How do you feel about this news?
Looks like someone wants HBO Max to make a lot of money.
Yeah they are going to get a lot of subscribers to compete against Netflix, Disney Plus and other streaming sites.
Dang, and they have some good titles coming up. No wonder their DirecTV is struggling. Might be the year to cut the cord.
I guess starting next year people are probably going to switch to streaming. I’m still going to keep my DirecTV. I might try HBO Max eventually. Who knows, I might change my mind so I can see Wonder Woman 1984.
I think this is a great idea. Being the UK though, I can’t access HBO Max, so it won’t really affect me. Cinemas are too expensive for me these days, so I tend to wait until stiff is on DVD/BluRay anyway.
Yeah it’s pretty smart idea. At least people will have options to watch movies. If I want to see a movie, but I can’t make it to theaters, I usually wait until it’s on TV.
I rather see it in theatres than HBO Max. Besides, we don’t have HBO Max in Canada.
Me too. I like the fun of going to the movies. The atmosphere of the theaters is the best.
I just wish the Cineplex movie theatres where I live in Canada would open up very soon after Christmas.
Hopefully by 2021, more theaters will open. I think right now, some are selective and can only take in a few amount of people.
