In a big move WarnerMedia announced that their streaming service HBO Max will be the streaming home to their entire 2021 movie slate concurrent with their first month of global theatrical release.
After the one-month HBO Max window, each film will leave the streaming platform and continue their theatrical runs.
Before this decision, the studio announced that “Wonder Woman 1984” would stream on HBO Max starting December 25 while also available in theaters.
This move comes as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to upset the movie theater business. Although a vaccine is imminent, most movie theaters still won’t be able to sell to full capacity until at least late spring/early summer.
Here’s a list of what movie enthusiasts will be able to watch in-home next year:
Denzel Washington’s “The Little Things”
“Judas and the Black Messiah”
“Tom & Jerry”
“Godzilla vs. Kong”
“Those Who Wish Me Dead”
“The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It”
“In the Heights”
“Space Jam: A New Legacy”
“The Suicide Squad”
“The Many Saints of Newark”
Disney made their theatrical live action update to “Mulan” available on the Disney+ platform, but subscribers had to purchase the film separately for $30.
Right after this announcement HBO Max announced it would no longer offer one-week free trails. So, if you want to enjoy these movies, it will cost you $14.99/month, no cheating!
This makes HBO Max the streaming service giving subscribers the biggest bang for their bucks.
