Wonder Woman 1984 is almost here.
Originally set to hit theaters over the summer, the highly anticipated Wonder Woman sequel faced multiple delays due to the ongoing pandemic. On Wednesday (November 18), Warner Bros. announced the superhero flick will be released on HBO Max on the same day the film flies into theaters. Whether you see it on the big screen or stream it at home, Wonder Woman 1984 will debut on Christmas (December 25).
“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,” Ann Sarnoff, Chair and CEO, WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group, said in a press release. “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.”
“We appreciate how patient audiences have been and given the great anticipation around Wonder Woman 1984 we are grateful to be able to make this terrifically entertaining movie widely available in these challenging times,” Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, added.
While some movies that were set to be released in theaters this year before pivoting to streaming due to the pandemic cost an extra fee to view, HBO Max revealed Wonder Woman 1984 will be free for all subscribers. For those who don't subscribe to HBO Max, however, you'll have to sign up for the platform in order to view the movie at home.
