LOS ANGELES (KSEE/KGPE) — Warner Bros. Pictures’ much anticipated follow up to 2017’s Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman 1984, will finally show on Christmas Day theatrically and as part of the HBO Max streaming platform.
The superhero film was set to debut on June 5, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was rescheduled to release in theaters in December. However, due to the uncertainty surrounding movie theaters as COVID-19 surges across the United States.
“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,” said Ann Sarnoff, Chair and CEO, WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group, which includes Warner Bros. Pictures.
“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.”
The film will be released on December 25 in 2D, 3D, and IMAX, and will stream the same day on HBO Max in the U.S.
