Anyone who subscribes to HBO GO, HBO’s current unstable app, or has access to the service through a subscription plan, need not worry, as their service will update automatically. The company has promised to provide more information on this soon.
One benefit that subscribers will have in 2021 is that big movie hits will be able to be checked for free in the app 35 days after the official theatrical debut. This has attracted a lot of criticism on social media because in the United States this service is also available. However, the premiere takes place simultaneously, allowing the subscriber to choose to see the movie in theaters or on HBO Max, and it’s even understandable that this decision to only release the movies here after a little over a month of projection is a strategy that does not aim to harm the profit of Brazilian cinemas. However, with more than 450,000 killed by Covid-19 in the country, it is unlikely that large numbers of people will flock to a cinema. Thus, they end up resorting to hacking to be able to watch the big releases, even if they appear illegally on the internet. It is this story, you can understand the reason for doing it, but it is not very smart considering that Brazil is the first country in the world in the consumption of digital piracy.
In the United States, the movie “Godzilla Vs Kong” was released in theaters the same day it was released for streaming. In Brazil, the film was released weeks later, which spurred public consumption of pirated copies.
Even with this release controversy, streaming will come with a lot of new content, whether original or not. We’ve separated a few of the main ones below.
All films released by DC will be available on the platform. Whether it’s live action or popular animation, including classic animated series, such as Batman – The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited. New seasons of Titans and Doom’s Watch will also feature there, as will Suicide Squad (2021), the original Peacemaker series (John Cena), and the upcoming Gotham Police series, set in Matt Reeves’ Batman universe. Another big gimmick for DC fans is a 10-episode series focused on the Green Lanterns cast. And it should be remembered that the anti-hero John Constantine will win a new series, whose interpreter of the protagonist has not yet been cast. Ah, Zack Snyder’s Justice League will also be at the service.
With the recently released trailer, the Friends cast reunion in the special will be platform exclusive, along with all episodes of the original series. Likewise, the reunion of the cast and all seasons of Um Maduco no Pedaço will also be exclusive to HBO Max.
Two classic series that have been very successful in the past will gain new approaches. These are Gossip Girl, which will feature the return of Kristen Bell in the storytelling, and Sex and the City, which will not feature the return of Samantha (Kim Cattrall) for a feud between the character’s performer and the ‘Actress Sarah Jessica Parker.
The most famous new series in the catalog is House of the Dragon, a Game of Thrones spinoff production that will take place before the events of the original series and will focus on Casa Targaryen. Also remembering the platform’s first original production, which was the series Raised By Wolves, from legendary director Ridley Scott. Starring Travis Fimmel (our dear Ragnar des Vinkings), the series tells the story of super-intelligent robots trying to take care of a little human boy in an apocalyptic world.
Looney Tunes and Cartoons
Valuable property of Warner, Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera characters such as Scooby-Doo will have their full versions and seasons available in the catalog. Just like the original Cartoon Network designs.
In the United States, all Ghibli Studios films have been made available on the platform. However, in Brazil most of them are licensed by Netflix. We haven’t gotten a response from the press office on how this will work in Brazil, so we’re waiting for more information.
Warner’s major theatrical releases in 2021 will be on the catalog. Those that have already been launched will already be available in the initial catalog. Those released in theaters will arrive on the platform 35 days after their theatrical debut. Are they:
From 2022, this supposedly simultaneous release system must be completed.
