'Wonder Woman 1984' is coming to HBO Max in December

'Wonder Woman 1984' is coming to HBO Max in December

Did WB make the right call?

Not only that, but the decision not to charge an extra fee for the film on HBO Max appears to be incredibly consumer-friendly too, especially in the wake of Disney's handling of the Mulan release. They are pulling out all the stops for premium content. In the future, it will debut the 'Friends" reunion special and Zack Snyder's "Justice League' extended cut.

The winners are the fans of these films. Collectively, the fans get to decide these things, as they should. Warner Bros. has also revealed that the movie will get a theatrical release in select worldwide markets on December 16. However, the film will also launch simultaneously on the studio's HBO Max streaming platform, at no additional cost to subscribers.

So AT&T is hoping that the release of Wonder Woman 1984 will up the number of HBO Max subscribers, but that might not be the case as Deadline not only questions the financial success of Wonder Woman 1984 but how many new subscribers the HBO Max release will bring as well.

"This is an unbelievable 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 United States where theatres are open".

I find it fascinating that we will be measuring the performance of this movie in an entirely new way.

An action spectacle starring Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman 1984 had originally been scheduled to reach cinemas in June 2020. Earlier this month, Disney also moved its remaining 2020 tentpole features, including "Death on the Nile", to 2021, effectively leaving "Wonder Woman 1984" as the lone 2020 tentpole.

Wonder Woman 1984 is the sequel to 2017's record-breaking Wonder Woman and will see star Gal Gadot reprise her trailblazing superhero role.

"A little over four million fans in the US enjoyed the first Wonder Woman movie on its opening day in 2017". Competitors took note. Most studios decided at that point to push their biggest films, from the James Bond film "No Time to Die" to "West Side Story" and "Black Widow", to next year. Rebecca Steel Roven Oakley, Richard Suckle, Marianne Jenkins, Geoff Johns, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo and Wesley Coller are the executive producers.

Per IGN, the decision seems to be the middle ground between Warner Bro's and the film's director, Patty Jenkins. The music is by Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer ("Dunkirk", "The Lion King").
