Los Angeles — AT & TInc. Warner Bros. will release the entire 2021 theater movie slate simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max streaming services, the studio said Thursday. For decades.
Warner Bros. movies will be played on HBO Max for the first month of theatrical release, and then will be discontinued while staying in the theater.
The hybrid model applies to all Warner Bros. movies next year, from small releases to big-budget movies that traditionally require huge box office revenues to make a profit. This includes the science fiction adaptation “Dune”, the movie version of the musical “In the Heights”, and the new “Matrix” franchise.
Warner Bros. announced last month that it would release “Wonder Woman 1984” for a month on HBO Max Christmas Day at the same time the movie was shown in theaters. The announcement on Thursday covers 17 films scheduled for release next year.
“We’re passing the needle in the middle of a pandemic,” said Carolyn Blackwood, the studio’s chief operating officer. “We were reluctant to sit in our hands or drive these films into oblivion.”
