Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in theaters and online the same day
Many months have passed since that first change in the release date of Wonder Woman 1984 and since then all fans of the heroine have been waiting to know when it would finally happen. Well, now we can say that we already know when the Wonder Woman sequel will be officially released.
Next day December 25th you can see in movie theaters that are not closed by COVID-19 the Wonder Woman 1984 premiere. Of course, this is not the best of all or the most important part of the announcement made by Warner Bros. What is really striking is that the same day it can also be seen on HBO Max.
In other words, despite the fact that the studio had always refused the possibility of a simultaneous premiere, it seems that in the end they had to back down and rely on their said online platform to be able to bring the premiere to a greater number of people, in especially for those who will not have the option of going to a movie theater because it is going to be closed or simply out of fear and caution.
Of course, although the news is super important, it must also be said that there is a small downside and that is that HBO Max is not available in all parts of the world. For example, here in UK the service is not active. We do have other platforms from HBO itself, but it is unknown whether or not they will take advantage of them to reach a greater number of viewers.
There is no other alternative
To premiere Wonder Woman 1984 in each and every one of the cinemas around the world where it can be done and on an online platform for those who are not comfortable with the idea of visiting a cinema, despite the security measures taken, it is not only the correct decision if not the only one.
It is true that the big surprise here is that there will be no differences in terms of dates as expected, but you decide what you decide on the same day you can see it. And yes, many may already anticipate that at the income level it will not be a success, but it is something that Warner Bros already has assumed.
In the end, whatever they did, nothing was going to change how chaotic 2020 has turned out to be in every respect. Therefore, it is better to stop lengthening the situation and end it with said premiere. The same ends up surprising us and despite a reduction in the box office, it continues to make numbers that do not make it a great economic failure.
We’ll see what happens, because December 25 is right there. And above all we will also see what they do in those countries where HBO Max is not available. Hopefully they don’t miss the opportunity to rehabilitate users of other HBO platforms, either with an extra charge or with the benefit of growing new users.
