SO WHAT EVEN HAPPENED THIS MONTH?
Warner Brothers announced that for the entire year of 2021 they would release their films day-and-date in theaters and on HBO Max at no additional cost to subscribers.
The 17 films are: The Little Things; Judas And The Black Messiah; Tom & Jerry; The Many Saints of Newark; Reminiscence; Godzilla Vs. Kong: The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It; In the Heights; Space Jam: A New Legacy; The Suicide Squad; Dune; King Richard; The Matrix 4; Mortal Kombat; Malignant; Those Who Wish Me Dead; Cry Macho
While releasing films from home and theaters for all to safely enjoy the way they choose is a wonderful idea. The way Warner Brothers handled it has not caused the greatest response from Hollywood. You can read all about it here.
Christopher Nolan has had quite the response to it
- The Washington Post option article about his comments (great read)
We also got a look into Disney's plans to win the "streaming wars" and all the things happening from Star Wars, PIXAR, and Marvel Studios. Lots of exciting things announced.
After all that, there was still room to talk about how I want to be able to give back to you listeners. It isn't much, but you will have the chance to win 1 of 3 Movies Anywhere FREE ScreenPasses from me every month.
