One by one, we have seen the films of 2020 bumped in their launch moves in favour of some 2021 launch or a streaming introduction, but among the last blockbusters of the season continues to be holding company for its Christmas release date. . .so far. WONDER WOMAN 1984 was formerly slated to hit theatres on December 13, 2019, prior to really being bumped around November 1, respectively 2019 after which discovering itself postponed to June 5, respectively 2020. As we all know, COVID-19 came ringing and shut theatres throughout the world, compelling Warner Bros. to push the movie back into August 14th, subsequently to October 2nd, and eventually to December 25th.

Though I’d say that it is a safe wager which WONDER WOMAN 1984 would be postponed, Warner Bros.. CEO Ann Sarnoff told Variety that they are still dedicated to viewing WONDER WOMAN 1984 in theatres on Christmas Day. Having said that, Warner Bros. have been observing conditions from the U.S. very carefully prior to making their final forecast. “It is really about the way the U.S. proceeds to start, and if there are some additional loopholes,” Sarnoff said. “We have got a tiny bit of time to figure out that.” Sarnoff also touched on the launch of Christopher Nolan’s TENET, that was postponed many times before landing at the U.S. on September 3rd. Even though the movie went on to make 341 globally, hardly any of the total came out of its national launch. Although that complete clearly is not exactly what they’d have anticipated if we weren’t in the midst of an earthquake, Sarnoff said they’re very happy with the results.
Christopher has [a] tremendous after, naturally from the U.S., but his other films have consistently over-indexed abroad. And if you recall back in June, July, August, the worldwide markets were open than the USA, so we all had this awesome picture that actually appeared to be on the large screen.

The very first WONDER WOMAN movie takes $821 million globally, which has been fairly evenly distributed between national and worldwide markets, but using WONDER WOMAN 1984″anticipated to skew more into the national market compared to TENET,” Warner Bros. could have a difficult decision to make in the forthcoming weeks. Before this season, director Patty Jenkins reported that she was not convinced that the movie would be published on Christmas, but added that she is a major supporter of their theatrical experience. Even the WONDER WOMAN sequel will probably deliver the actions to the 1980s and locate Magic Woman (Gal Gadot) facing off from Max Lord (Pedro Pascal) and also The Cheetah (Kristen Wiig). Put your bets, people. Can WONDER WOMAN 1984 grip business on Christmas or would the movie be postponed once more?
