Wonder Woman 1984 To Release on HBO Max
Ahead of Wonder Woman 1984 releasing on HBO Max in conjunction with the theatrical release, HBO Max has cancelled its seven-day free trial offer. Wonder Woman 1984 is set to release on December 25. In addition, Warner Bros. has announced that all of its 2021 films will be released on HBO Max. The new releases include The Matrix 4; Dune; In the Heights; The Suicide Squad; Space Jam: A New Legacy; and The Many Saints of Newark, the prequel to HBO’s Sopranos.
HBO Max Discount
But, HBO Max cancelling their free trial shouldn’t make you give up hope; according to Variety, WarnerMedia is “offering a 22% discount to new subscribers who prepay for six months at $69.99 (about $11.66 per month, versus the regular $14.99 monthly price)”. The special offer is available from December 3, 2020 to January 15, 2021; furthermore, it’s available to new and current subscribers to the streaming service.
What’s important to note is that these films will only be available for 31 days. After that, they’ll only be available in theaters until the usual release to DVD. WarnerMedia executives have clarified that the day-and-date releases are not expected to continue into 2022; however, they are only a response to the global pandemic and the impact it has had on movie theaters. WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff said in a statement, “…we have to balance this [new content] with the reality that most theaters in the U.S. will likely operate at reduced capacity throughout 2021”.
A few of the new releases include Denzel Washington’s The Little Things; Judas and the Black Messiah; Tom and Jerry; Godzilla vs. Kong; Mortal Kombat; Angelina Jolie’s Those Who Wish Me Dead; The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It; Reminiscence with Hugh Jackman; James Wan’s Malignant; and King Richard with Will Smith.
