Wonder Woman 1984 to be Released Theatrically and on HBO Max on Christmas Day
Warner Bros. has announced that "Wonder Woman 1984" will be released in both theatres and on HBO max on December 25, Christmas Day. They have also announced that there will be no additional cost for HBO Max subscribers to view the film for one month.
Ann Sarnoff, Chair and CEO, WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group, said, "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. 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."
"We appreciate how patient audiences have been and given the great anticipation around Wonder Woman 1984 we are grateful to be able to make this terrifically entertaining movie widely available in these challenging times," said Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group.
The Patty Jenkins helmed film will bring us back to the 1980s, where Wonder Woman will face two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah.
Aside from Gal Gadot, the film stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as The Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as Max Lord, Robin Wright as Antiope, and Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta.
Patty Jenkins directed from a screenplay she wrote with Geoff Johns & David Callaham, story by Jenkins & Johns, based on characters from DC. Joining the director behind the scenes are several members of her "Wonder Woman" team, including director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto ("Amélie"), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming ("Topsy-Turvy"). Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson ("United 93") is cutting the film. The music is by Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer ("Dunkirk," "The Lion King").
