We all know that coronavirus pandemic has a significant impact on our life. The film industry is also affected and productions, release dates all have been beset with new dates. Furthermore, business models were changed. Many blockbuster movies made some tough decisions.
Christopher Nolan’s Tenet and Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman 1984 are included, making tough decisions regarding theatrical releases to video-on-demand debuts. Now Warner Bros announced that now these will be released in theatres and on HBO Max in 2021.
However, on the other side, there is a strong criticism because the studio did not consult with agents, actors, and directors of 17 films that make up the slate.
The chairman and CEO of Warner Bros said, “we are trying to figure out the best way forward for the last eight months since we were in the lockdown. Furthermore, he explained that they had many movies ready to go and have been sitting on the shelves. That’s why we thought it would be a creative and win-win situation to bring them not only to theatres but for 31 days on HBO Max.
Warner media’s parent company also called it a win-win-win decision for the company, parents, and consumers. However, others are not seeing in this way due to sudden urgency.
Nolan said, “some filmmakers and stars thought they were going to bed as they were working for the greatest movie studio, and when they woke up, they find out that they were working for the worst streaming service. Furthermore, Stankey also said, I know there is a big noise in the market, but that happens.
