Last month, Warner Bros. shocked everyone by announcing that the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 would be the first movie to debut at the same time with HBO Max on Christmas Day. However, in order to sign this deal, Warner Bros. must successfully compensate those involved in the film, an agent calling it “Wonder Woman Money” and the potential loss from an exclusive theatrical release. I offset the profits.
Many have publicly questioned and expressed concern about the decision to move to the dual-release format, as the same deal is not reportedly offered to those involved in the next movie’s slate. .. James Gunn, the director of Suicide Squad’s restart, is reportedly among those who aren’t happy with the offer from Warner Bros.
“Warner Bros. had a great machine to take filmmakers’ work everywhere, in the theater or at home. They’re dismantling it when we talk,” Nolan said. .. Their decisions are economically meaningless, and even the most casual Wall Street investors can see the difference between turmoil and dysfunction. “Nolan is known for his films directed by The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, and Interstellar, and has partnered with Warner Bros. in his film dating back to 2002 insomnia. His recent movie, Tenet, had box office revenues of just under $ 45 million earlier this year before the theater was completely closed again due to a continuing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Legendary Entertainment, a favorite of Nolan’s co-production, announced today that it is also seeking a proceeding against Warner Bros. after moving Dune and Godzilla vs. Kong to HBO Max.
