Warner Bros recently announced that they will be releasing seventeen movies on the OTT platform, HBO Max, the same day they release them on the theatres. This new announcement was not taken well by many theatre owners as it might lead to a huge loss on their part.
The some of the movies in the list already have a huge fan base such as “The Matrix 4” and “Suicide Squad”. This came as very good news for fans who can not go to the theatres as they cannot risk the infection of some highly susceptible members of their family. This would also be a cheaper option for a lot of people.
You can watch the trailer of the movie here-
“It allows us to do a global release and a national release in what we think is going to be a checkerboarded theatrical market place for the bulk of 2021,” Emmerich told THR. “We think where theaters are open, and consumers can go, that a lot of people will choose to go to the theater, especially for big movies.”
The other movies in the list include Dune, Godzilla vs. Kong and Space Jam: A New Legacy. Other films include Little Things, Judas and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry, Mortal Kombat, Those Who Wish Me Dead, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, In the Heights, Reminiscence, Malignant, The Many Saints of Newark, King Richard and Cry Macho.
Though the company has repeatedly assured that this provision has been made only for the sake of the pandemic, we can never be sure if this trend will stick around.
We hope this news made your day!
