Big Films Will Debut Exclusively in Theatres in 2022 Says WarnerMedia Chief

WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar has announced that as of 2022, all of their biggest films will be making their debuts in theatres. 

"I think it's very fair to say that a big, you know, let's say a big DC movie … it's very fair to say that that would go exclusively to theaters first and then go to somewhere like an HBO Max after it's in theaters," said Kilar in an interview.

While the move to release films simultaneously in theatres and On-Demand cause a lot of controversy, it did prove successful in cases like "Godzilla vs. Kong" and "Tom & Jerry: The Movie".

However, even though there has been this success, Kilar said, "There's no doubt that it was bumpy back in early December of last year. If I had the chance to do it over again, I think it's very fair to say that we would have taken a couple more days to see if we could have had even more conversations than we were able to have."
