Warner Bros. announced on Thursday that its entire 2021 slate will also be available on HBO Max.
There's a small catch though: The movies will only be available on the streaming service for the first month they're released, after that they will be exclusively in theaters.
Here is a breakdown of all 17 Warner Bros. movies that will be released next year on HBO Max.
Hollywood has had to do quite a lot of maneuvering since the coronavirus pandemic completely changed our lives. And this latest chapter is the most dramatic yet.
On Thursday, Warner Bros. announced that its entire 2021 movie slate will open domestically on HBO Max and in theaters simultaneously for the first month of its release. Following that first month, the movies will be exclusively available in theaters.
This comes on the heels of the studio announcing that its most anticipated title left on the 2020 calendar, December's "Wonder Woman 1984," will also be available on HBO Max the first month of its release along with being in theaters.
In the ever-changing landscape of the movie business - which included the mainstay of Premium Video On Demand and shortened theatrical windows - this is the most jarring as it no longer makes movie theaters the sole destination for seeing the most anticipated movies (at least Warner Bros. movies), which it has been for the last 100 years.
Here's every Warner Bros. movie the studio plans to release in 2021, listed in order of release date, that will be available on HBO Max for the first month they are released.
