There are some restrictions on the latest business model. The movies will stream only on HBO Max for a month before vanishing from the platform for some time.
They will as well show in theaters simultaneously, thereby keeping close the relationship with movie theater distributors. Just like Regal and AMC. The main goal is to push this experiment for a year.
For those that do not have any access to HBO Max in their market, it seems that the launch in theaters will still be the go-to option.
Movies to be released by Warner Bros.
The movies that Warner Bros. is making plans to release include:
- Tom and Jerry.
- The Little Things.
- Mortal Kombat.
- Judas and the Black Messiah.
- Godzilla vs. Kong.
- Those Who Wish Me Dead.
- The Devil Made Me Do It.
- In The Heights
- The Suicide Squad.
- A New Legacy.
- King Richard.
- Matrix 4.
- The Many Saints of Newark, and
- Cry, Macho.
Well, these titles might change depending on the delay. Every film will be released in 4K Ultra HD and HDR on HBO Max.
These steps might as well assist Warner Bros to reach a deal with Roku after several months of contesting over a deal.
Warner Bros. is as well giving out a limited deal, by making HBO Max 22% cheaper for those who sign up for 6 months. The price of $69.99 works out to just below $12 per month instead of $15.
CEO of Warner Bros. Comment
Here is what the CEO of Warner Bros. Ann Sarnoff said;
“We are living in unprecedented times which call for creative solutions, including this new initiative for the Warner Bros. Pictures Group”.
The CEO of the company further added:
“No one wants films back on the big screen more than we do. We know new content is the lifeblood of theatrical exhibition, but we have to balance this with the reality that most theaters in the U.S. will likely operate at reduced capacity throughout 2021”.
On one hand, it is a very straightforward decision for Warner Bros., WarnerMedia, as well as AT&T, the parent company. Executives haven’t made any trial to secure how vital HBO Max is to the future of the business.
It is also not new that HBO Max is not having as many subscriber additions as WarnerMedia would want.
W. B. tried so hard to release a movie in theaters during the coronavirus pandemic
Warner Bros. put in some efforts to release a movie in theaters during the coronavirus pandemic and the studio lost so much.
They lost hundreds of millions of dollars. These factors, on top of a renewal of cases of coronavirus around the world that place at risk the upcoming months of any group activities give just the exact opportunity for WarnerMedia to experiment.
Have you ever thought of what John Stankey, AT&T CEO said to the investors some months back concerning the 2021 releases in theaters? Here is what he said:
“We’re not optimistic. We are not looking that we are seeing here, expecting a huge recovery in theatrical moving into the early part of next year. We’re expecting it to continue to be choppy.
As a result of that, we are having to evaluate all of our options and keeping them open”.
