In a post on her Twitter account, director Patty Jenkins commented on Warner Bros. to release “Wonder Woman 1984” simultaneously on HBO Max streaming and in theaters on December 25, mid-Christmas.
“The time has come. At some point you have to choose between sharing all the love and joy you have to give above all else. We love our movie as much as we love you, so we hope our movie will bring joy and will elude everyone this Christmas time. Watch the NOS CINEMAS movie if it is safe (check out the great work of theaters for your safety), or it will be available in the safety of your home on HBO Max [nas regiões em que cinema não for seguro]. Happy holidays to you. Hope you enjoy our movie as much as we love doing it, ”the director said.
In a press release, Ann Sarnoff, President and CEO of WarnerMedia Studios, explained the controversial decision:
“As we went through this unprecedented time, we had to be innovative to move our business forward while continuing to provide our fans. It’s an incredible movie that really comes to life on the big screen, and together with our viewing community partners, we’ll be bringing this option to consumers in the United States, in open theaters. We have realized that many consumers cannot return to the movies due to the pandemic, so we also want to give them the opportunity to see Wonder Woman 1984 through our HBO Max platform, ”he said.
Unlike “Mulan”, “Wonder Woman 1984” will cost nothing more than the monthly subscription fee. HBO Max (US) subscribers will be able to watch the film directly from home. The streaming service costs $ 14.99 per month.
In Brazil, “Wonder Woman 1984” remains scheduled on December 24, only in theaters.
