According to Deadline, producer Legendary Entertainment is not happy with Warner Bros.’s decision. to release “Godzilla vs. Kong” and “Duna” simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max’s streaming service.
The website says Legendary must speak out, challenging Warner’s decision to release “ Dune ” and “ Godzilla vs Kong ” on HBO Max. Sources say Netflix offered $ 250 million to show the film about the epic crossover between the two monsters, but WarnerMedia ended up blocking the deal. Additionally, sources claim that Legendary did not have an opinion on the launch plan on HBO Max.
The producer and his partners were responsible for 75% of the $ 165 million “Dune” budget, which was developed to be the start of a new franchise. The bigger question is whether the launch of the streaming service will hurt the eventual franchise in the long run.
Remember that despite Legendary putting more money into the budget, Warner Bros. controls the launch of productions.
