Wonder Woman 1984 To Premiere On HBO Max And In Theaters Worldwide
Wonder Woman 1984 Is Coming To Save 2020
The last remnants of 2020 are about to be uplifted with the arrival of a much-awaited and highly anticipated superhero movie in the form of Wonder Woman 1984. The movie delayed numerous times due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic worldwide is about to see the light of day after being given the all-important green signal by the studio.
The Wonder Woman sequel is going to be released theatrically and digitally on Christmas and its lead cast member Gal Gadot admits that the release plan was not an easy move for everyone involved with the movie.
The superhero movie Wonder Woman 1984 will debut simultaneously in US theaters and on AT&T Inc’s HBO Max streaming service starting on Christmas Day, an unusual release plan prompted by the coronavirus pandemic.
AT&T’s Warner Bros studio said on Wednesday that the blockbuster film will be shown in theaters outside the United States, where HBO Max is not available, starting on December 16.
WarnerMedia Chief Executive Jason Kilar said in a blog post:
"For a movie of this scale, this is unprecedented."
An action spectacle starring Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman 1984 had originally been scheduled to reach cinemas in June 2020.
But Hollywood studios delayed most of their summer blockbusters until 2021 as the virus has kept many theaters in key markets closed, devastating theater operators including AMC Entertainment and Cineworld Group Plc. Wonder Woman 1984 was moved several times and is the last big-budget action film on the 2020 schedule.
Director Patty Jenkins said:
"At some point, you have to choose to share any love and joy you have to give, over everything else. We truly hope that our film brings a little bit of joy and reprieve to all of you this holiday season."
Gal Gadot added:
"We never thought we’d have to hold onto the release for such a long time. But Covid rocked all of our worlds."
