Warner Bros. To Release Slate Of 2021 Movies On HBO Max As Well As Cinemas

A Hybrid Release Programme Coming Next Year

Warner Bros. are testing the waters with their announcement that Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on HBO Max as well as cinemas this month and now it seems that all of their 2021 films will be getting this hybrid treatment. Here’s details from Deadline and Variety…

Following the one-month HBO Max access period domestically, each film will leave the platform and continue theatrically in the U.S. and international territories, with all customary distribution windows applying to the title, Deadline reports.

Just take a look at what you’ll be able to see at home next year: Denzel Washington’s The Little ThingsJudas and the Black MessiahTom & JerryGodzilla vs. KongMortal Kombat, Those Who Wish Me Dead, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, In the Heights, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, Reminiscence, Malignant, Dune, The Many Saints of Newark, King Richard, Cry Macho and Matrix 4.

Variety reported on the story too:

WarnerMedia chair and CEO Ann Sarnoff referred to the model as a “unique one-year plan.” Executives at the company have stressed the initiative isn’t expected to continue into 2022 or beyond — it’s considered a temporary solution in response to the ongoing global heath crisis.

“We’re living in unprecedented times which call for creative solutions, including this new initiative for the Warner Bros. Pictures Group,” Sarnoff said in a statement. “No one wants films back on the big screen more than we do. We know new content is the lifeblood of theatrical exhibition, but we have to balance this with the reality that most theaters in the U.S. will likely operate at reduced capacity throughout 2021.”

“With this unique one-year plan, we can support our partners in exhibition with a steady pipeline of world-class films, while also giving moviegoers who may not have access to theaters or aren’t quite ready to go back to the movies the chance to see our amazing 2021 films,” she continued. “We see it as a win-win for film lovers and exhibitors, and we’re extremely grateful to our filmmaking partners for working with us on this innovative response to these circumstances.”

We here at Tripwire miss the cinemagoing experience and hope that they will be able to return to the kind of experience they used to offer prior to the coronovirus at some point in 2021.
