Warner Bros. has postponed the release of “Wonder Woman 1984” again and this time the superhero sequel starring Gal Gadot will be hitting the theaters on December 25, 2020.
The film was earlier scheduled to release on October, 2nd after getting delayed due to the pandemic in June, 2020.
Dune is another major blockbuster that is scheduled for December release. The film is coming on the 18th of December, however, given the current situation, it is likely to be delayed to February, 2021.
“Patty Jenkins 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. We’re very proud of the film and look forward to bringing it to audiences for the holidays,” said Warner Bros. Pictures Group Chairman Toby Emmerich in a statement today.
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!”
Warner Bros. recently released “Tenet” on the big screen, marking the first major blockbuster to debut since movie theaters closed in March due to the pandemic. The $200 million-budgeted film, from director Christopher Nolan, launched over Labor Day weekend in the U.S. to a muted $20 million.
For now, Disney and Marvel’s comic book adventure “Black Widow” on Nov. 6 is the next major film on calendars.
Nearly 70% of movie theaters in the U.S. have reopened, but important markets like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco remain closed.
