Warner Bros. officially announced that Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on Christmas Day, and now we have comments from director Patty Jenkins.
As expected, Warner Bros. postponed the release date of Wonder Woman 1984, moving the sequel to DC Comics from October 2 to December 25th. Since they did not expect such a resounding failure of Tenet, because with a budget of 200 million they estimated to reach 800 million of collection. But the reality in the world we live in is very different and you will not achieve that number by far. Therefore, the smartest thing is to move the premieres to safer dates.
In a recent interview, Director Patty Jenkins said, “First, let me say how much Gal Gadot and I love all of our devoted Wonder Woman fans around the world, and their enthusiasm for Wonder Woman 1984 couldn't make us happier or happier. make us more anxious to see the movie. "
“Since I know how important it is to bring this movie to you on a big screen when we can all share the experience together, I hope you don't mind waiting a little longer. With the new date of Christmas Day, we are looking forward to spending the holidays with you! "
A Warner manager also spoke about the film.
Toby Emmerich, Chairman of Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group, meanwhile, added: “Patty Jenkins is an exceptional filmmaker and with Wonder Woman 1984 she has delivered an incredibly dynamic film that will delight moviegoers of all ages around the world. We are very proud of the film and hope to bring it to the public during the holidays.
The studio waited for the Tenet ticket sales figures before making a decision on Wonder Woman 1984, and they clearly weren't happy at all. With the marketing campaign stalled, again, from DC FanDome, this delay is not surprising, but it is disappointing. Hopefully the world is a more normal place on those dates.
