The 2020 Wonder Woman movie, whose release has been rocked with more than a little hiccup from COVID-19, is in cinema and on HBO max for Christmas.
The super-hero film whose release date kept postponing due to the novel pandemic, COVID-19, will now release on December 25. With the pandemic second wave in play, the producers have decided to give up on traditional theatrical release and go for any open cinema on 25 and HBO max streams.
Patty Jenkins, the director, and Gal Godot, the movie star, took to Twitter to air their emotion on the anticipated movie on Thursday morning. The note Gal Godot tweeted reads, “it’s time... we’ve all waited a long time for this one to come. I can’t tell you how excited I am for all of you to see this movie. It wasn’t an easy decision, and we never thought we’d have to hold onto the release for such a long time, but COVID rocked all. We feel the movie has never been so relevant, and we hope that’ll bring some joy, hope and love to your hearts. Wonder Woman 1984 is a special one for me, and I can only hope it’ll be as special to you too. We’ve put our hearts and soul into it.
"So.. you can watch it IN THEATRES (they’re doing an amazing job keeping it safe), and you can watch it on HBO mad from your homes.
"Sending you my love. Please keep safe and wear a mask. Happy holiday to all of us! Let the light shine.”
This tweet was made 12 minutes after Jenkins tweeted her emotional note, stating similar facts and show of delight. Both Patty and Gal teamed up for the first Wonder Woman movie, a blockbuster that earned $828.1 Million at the worldwide box office. Both wonder women worked to replicate the exhilarating experience fans got from the first Wonder Woman movie.
The choice for an eccentric release was made as the second wave of covid-19 forced many cinemas to close again. Ann Sarnoff, CEO of Warner Media Studios and Network Groups, provided that “as we navigate these unprecedented times, we’ve had to be innovative in keeping our businesses moving forward while continuing to super-serve our fans.” He also stated that “this is an amazing film that really comes to life on the big screen and, working with our partners in the exhibition community, we will provide that option to consumers in the U.S. where theaters are open. We realize that a lot of consumers can’t go back to the movies due to the pandemic, so we also want to give them the option to see Wonder Woman 1984. via our HBO Max platform.”
While this is such marvellous news for fans, releasing the movie to HBO max means WarnerBros will be giving up on potential box office ticket sales. The hope is to take advantage of the festive galore on December 25. Warner media Dason Killar appeared to be setting up expectations to this effect on a blog post on Wednesday. In the post, he stated that the first Wonder Woman movie has four million views on opening day in the USA. “Is it possible for that to happen again this Christmas with Woman Woman 1984 between theatres and HBO max?” Killar asked. By December 25, we will have an answer to this. Make sure you get a nice bowl of popcorn and enough of the movie to drop a review.
