Wonder Woman 1984 is Coming to Theaters and HBO Max on December 25
After rumors and speculation, Warner Bros. has announced that Wonder Woman 1984 will be getting released worldwide on December 25th. The film will debut in theaters and on HBO Max on the same day. It will premiere on HBO Max at no extra cost for the first month of the film’s release.
The decision to split the release was due to the ongoing COVID pandemic and an uncertain future. This allows those fans who can go to a theater in a safe environment to do so and those who can not to still experience the film and not miss out without the need to further delay the release. In the end, it’ll be the decision for fans as to what to do.
In the announcement, it was acknowledged by Warner Media CEO Jason Kilar that this was new territory and the success will be measured in new ways as well. In the announcement, it’s mentioned that a little over 4 million fans in the U.S. enjoyed Wonder Woman on the first day. What will happen this way? It’s a whole new world and Wonder Woman is going to help lead the charge.
But, Wonder Woman 1984 will have competition. Disney is releasing the Pixar film Soul on Disney+ on the same day. It’s the battle of digital releases but this time it’s from the convenience of the home with no need to deftly figure out your ticket times for a double feature. It’s all from the convenience of one’s couch this year.
