Legendary Entertainment May Take Legal Action Over Warner Bros. Over HBO Max Deal
Legendary Entertainment may be pursuing legal action against Warner Bros. after the announcement of the studio releasing its films to HBO Max and theatres simultaneously.
Legendary co-financed "Dune" and "Godzilla vs. Kong", both high budget films, coming at $175 million and $160 million, respectively. Apparently, they claim they were unaware of Warner Bros. plans to release the films on HBO Max.
The director of "Dune", Denis Villeneuve, is also said to be disappointed in the move and would like a Christmas Day theatrical release.
"Dune" stars Timothee Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, and Zendaya and is slated for an Oct. 1, 2021 release. "Godzilla vs. Kong" is slated for a May 21, 2021 release.
