Like A Quiet Place 2, Wonder Woman 1984 has been delayed yet again! Despite Warner Bros Tenet winning this past weekend box office, it still has quite a hill to climb to break even for the studio. Fearing Wonder Woman could share a similar fate, due to COVID-19 concerns, Warner Bros decided to move the film off of its October release date.
The highly anticipated sequel now moves to a December 25th release date. Now we can all celebrate Christmas with Wonder Woman.
“Patty is an exceptional filmmaker and with Wonder Woman 1984 she has delivered an incredibly dynamic film that moviegoers of all ages around the world will absolutely love,” said Toby Emmerich, Warmer Bros. Motion Picture Group chairman. “We’re very proud of the film and look forward to bringing it to audiences for the holidays.”
Director Patty Jenkins added, “First and foremost let me say how much Gal and I love all our devoted Wonder Woman fans around the world, and your excitement for ‘WW84’ couldn’t make us happier or more eager for you to see the movie. Because I know how important it is to bring this movie to you on a big screen when all of us can share the experience together, I’m hopeful you won’t mind waiting just a little bit longer. With the new date on Christmas Day, we can’t wait to spend the holidays with you!”
With the delay of “Wonder Woman 1984,” “Tenet” won’t face much competition among ticket buyers and could see a boost in sales in the coming weeks. For now, Disney and Marvel’s comic book adventure “Black Widow” is the next major film on calendars. In the meantime, smaller movies like Sony’s romantic comedy “The Broken Hearts Gallery” still plan to open this weekend.
No news yet if this will affect the release date of Dune which is set to hit theaters (currently) on December 17th.
