Let’s be honest; we are still at least six months away before we can even think about going into a movie theater again. What are the studios going to do?

Well, Warner Bros announced today that they will be releasing their 2021 movies on both HBO Max and in theaters on the same day.

“After considering all available options and the projected state of moviegoing throughout 2021, we came to the conclusion that this was the best way for WarnerMedia’s motion picture business to navigate the next 12 months,” said Jason Kilar, CEO, WarnerMedia. “More importantly, we are planning to bring consumers 17 remarkable movies throughout the year, giving them the choice and the power to decide how they want to enjoy these films. Our content is extremely valuable, unless it’s sitting on a shelf not being seen by anyone. We believe this approach serves our fans, supports exhibitors and filmmakers, and enhances the HBO Max experience, creating value for all.”

Their 2021 theatrical lineup includes The Little Things, Judas and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry, Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Those Who Wish Me Dead, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, In The Heights, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, Reminiscence, Malignant, Dune, The Many Saints of Newark, King Richard, Cry Macho and Matrix 4.

Wonder Woman: 1984 will kick things off on December 25th.

This makes a lot of sense. While the small screen is not as good as the big one. However, it is better than none at all. I have a feeling Disney, Viacom, and Universal will follow suit on their streaming platforms Disney+, CBS All Access, and Peacock, respectively.
