Every 2021 Warner Brothers movie will be available for streaming on HBO Max and the streaming platform will kick off their first 4K Ultra HD movie with Wonder Woman 1984 on Christmas day. Now, fans are clamoring for the HBO Max streaming service and Roku users are waiting for the app to come to their devices. HBO Max is currently available on multiple platforms with more to come.
The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way people view movies and some believe that the changes will continue past the pandemic.
New movies will premiere in theaters and on HBO Max where they will play for one month. The move is huge as Hollywood has thrived on big box office releases and ticket sales since its inception. Diverging that revenue with online streaming services is an unprecedented move but one that some expect other studios will follow.
Though COVID-19 vaccines are underway and many expect 2021 to be a year where the majority of the population will become vaccinated, some believe that cautionary procedures such as social distancing will still be practiced. It seems the days of packed movie theaters on a big-budget movie’s premiere may be a thing of the past.
The decision to stream Wonder Woman as the first film in 4K is proving to be huge as people are clamoring to ensure they have HBO Max before the big event. Now that COVID-19 cases are skyrocketing across the nation, more people are going to be staying indoors on Christmas and avoiding public gatherings at movie theaters.
There is no doubt that many people will stay in their homes with thier immediate families and watch Wonder Woman while socially isolating.
Some people are confused about the differences between HBO, HBO Go, and HBO Max. Those who have HBO Go should realize that HBO Max is a different app. The movie releases that are coming to HBO Max will not be on HBO Go. However, those who have a subscription to HBO through a cable or satellite provider will have access to HBO Max.
Do you have HBO Max? Are you looking forward to seeing Wonder Woman 1984 with Gal Gadot on Christmas day? What do you think about Warner Brothers’ move to stream all of their movies on HBO Max for the first month?
