The wait is finally over! Fans of superhero flick ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ aka ‘WW84’ who have been waiting for its release will now be excited to hear that the movie is releasing soon. Warner Bros, the distributor of the action-adventure film, has announced that ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ is scheduled for a December 25, 2020, release in cinemas and will simultaneously get released on subscription-based streaming site HBO Max on the same day.
The move to release both in theatres and a video on demand platform on the same day comes as the raging Covid-19 pandemic has reduced chances to go to theatres physically amid the virus threat.
“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,” said Ann Sarnoff, Chair and CEO, WarnerMedia.
“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 US 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,” she said about the release of ‘WW84’.
The director of 'WW84', Patty Jenkins. also shared a note on Twitter on November 18. She said, "The time has come. At some point you have to choose to share any love and joy you have to give, over everything else. We love our movie as we love our fans, so we truly hope that our film brings a little bit of joy and reprieve to all of you this holiday season."

According to Variety, the move to release the film in cinemas and the VoD platform is surprising and not that astonishing at the same time. The decision is surprising as ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ was the most anticipated movie of the year that had the potential to reportedly surpass $1 billion in ticket sales had all theatres been open.
However, the move to release is not unexpected as the movie has been delayed several times due to pandemic this year and has even skipped its original summer release for 2020. Variety states that many were skeptical if the movie would be released on Christmas, given the condition is worsening due to pandemic, but now, to fans elation, the film has got not only a release date but comfort to stream it too.
‘WW84’ will be released in theatres and video on demand site HBO Max on December 25, 2020. The film will stream on HBO Max for a month at no additional cost to its subscribers.
