Warner Bros., one of the largest and most well-known film studios in the industry, has announced that all of its films, which are due to premiere in 2021, will be released simultaneously in cinemas and on the online platform.
This platform will be HBO Max, owned by WarnerMedia. Given that it is a new streaming service, it seems that owners are actively trying to attract users in a special way: an example of this is even the fact that a special episode of the TV series Euphoria aired on HBO Max a few days ago.
Consequently, viewers will be able to watch blockbusters such as Dune or Matrix next year in cinemas and without leaving home at the same time. This decision applies to a total of 17 films and here they are.
Minor Details (The Little Things), Judas and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry, Curse: The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, On the Peak (In The Heights), Space Race: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, Reminiscence, Malignant, Dune, The Many Saints of Newark , King Richard, Cry Macho and Matrix 4.
It is noteworthy that Warner Bros. made the first such decision in connection with the premiere of Wonder Woman 1984: the film will be released on HBO Max online streaming service on December 25 and will be released in US cinemas on the same day.
A few weeks ago because of this, experts thought it was a trial decision to let the film studio see how profitable it would be, though it did not seem to dare make a bolder decision, and next year Warner Bros. All film premieres will be held in a similar format.
