Not in the mood for the cinema, but for the new blockbusters? This will not be necessary for films by Warner Bros in 2021, because new films will appear in parallel on the streaming platform HBO Max, at least in the USA.
The pandemic is permanently changing the cinema landscape, particularly recognizable by the latest decision by the industry giant Warner Bros: The new cinema films of 2021 that will be made by Warner will also be released for streaming at home at the same time as the screen release. In the USA, HBO Max from Warner is the appropriate platform for this. In Germany there is still no information on this streaming strategy, but publication via services such as Sky GO or Sky Ticket, which have also shown HBO productions ("Game of Thrones", "Westworld") in the past, would be possible.
In line with this announcement, there is also a trailer that presents this new offer in the USA and the films concerned.
This decision comes as a surprise because the big film studios have long resisted streaming and insisted on cinema as the only true distribution for the first release of a film. But the corona pandemic has probably loosened this attitude. In this way, not only will Wonder Woman 1984 be seen at home at Christmas. Incidentally, all of the 2021 films such as Dune, Godzilla vs Kong, The Suicide Squad and Matrix 4 will only be shown temporarily via streaming. These films will be available for a month at the time of their theatrical release and will then disappear from the streaming platform, while they will be shown in theaters for longer.
