Warner Bros to bring all 2021 films to theaters and HBO MAX
With the issues of Covid shutting down theaters and limiting anything new from being released it came as no surprise that Warner Bros opted to do a dual release for the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 on both HBO MAX and theaters. This seems to have set a whole plan for next year in motion that will no doubt make the streaming service dominate.
In 2021 they will be doing dual releases to their entire slate of films just like Wonder Woman in theaters and for a one month run on HBO MAX during its initial release. That means you have the chance to watch some highly anticipated films on the streaming platform including Denzel Washington’s The Little Things, Judas and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry, Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Those Who Wish Me Dead, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, In the Heights, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, Reminiscence, Malignant, Dune, The Many Saints of Newark, King Richard, Cry Macho and Matrix 4.
This is an unprecedented move that will no doubt continue to change the future of how movies are released, but in my humble opinion the best option for the time being. This allows everyone a chance to see the films in the safest way they see fit as well as continue to boost the theatrical business and that of HBO MAX. I’ve been back in theaters and will continue to do so, but love having the option nonetheless.
