Warner Bros. has decided to postpone Wonder Woman 1984 again. The studio is not reassured that the cinema audience will return to the cinema in large numbers during the corona crisis. Variety reports that .
The film was supposed to be released on October 2, but the film studio has now moved that to December 25. According to insiders, Warner Bros. fear that the public is not waiting for another big blockbuster in such a short time, since Tenet was released last month. The studio hopes that the film will have a longer shelf life due to the loss of competition.
In addition, the corona virus is still very present in many places worldwide and that makes the situation too uncertain to release such an expensive film. For example, cinemas in the United States only run at 50 to 70 percent of their maximum capacity and in the states of California and New York they are even closed.
The studio says in a response to Variety that it has a lot of faith in Patty Jenkins’ film. “Patty is an exceptional filmmaker and with Wonder Woman 1984 she has delivered a beautiful dynamic film that will delight moviegoers of all ages around the world,” said Toby Emmerich, president of the Warmer Bros. Motion Picture Group.
Jenkins himself hopes that fans can muster to have a little more patience. “With the new date on Christmas Day, we can spend the holidays with all the fans!”
