Gal Gadot’s much-awaited ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ will show up in U.S. theatres and on an OTT streaming service on Christmas Day, an unusual release plan prompted by the virus outbreak. AT&T’s Warner Bros studio stated on Wednesday that the movie will be put up in theatres outside the United States starting on December 16.
Gal made the official announcement using her Twitter account. With her post, she mentioned that the wait is finally over and the time all fans waited for has finally arrived! She also mentioned that she is very excited about this project and all the fans to watch this movie. She went on to add that things did not go as planned because of the coronavirus pandemic. Gal said, “We feel the movie has never been so relevant and we hope that it’ll bring some joy, hope, and love to your hearts. Wonder Woman 1984 is a special one for me and I can only hope it’ll be as special to you too. We’ve put our hearts and souls into it.”
She urged the fans to be safe and wear a mask. While informing them about the movie coming up on theatres and TVs soon, she signed off saying, “Happy holidays to all of us! Let the light shine in.”
‘Wonder Woman 1984’ was originally scheduled for the summer of 2020, June 2020 specifically. But Hollywood studios delayed most of their summer blockbusters until 2021 due to the lockdown in major countries and the closure of many global markets.
This film is marked to be the last big-budget action film as per the 2020 schedule. “For a movie of this scale, this is unprecedented,” WarnerMedia Chief Executive Jason Kilar said in a blog post explaining the release strategy. The film directed by Patty Jenkins also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as the villain Cheetah, and Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord.
