Wonder Woman 1984 - ehh?



Not sure how Chris Pine comes back but I guess Gal Gadot can make any man rise.

The trailer looks great, looking forward to this. Not sure how Steve is back, no doubt time travel or frozen in the ice

Kristen wiig is playing a Kristen wiig character I noticed

There was a line from the apparent baddie about getting something in return, so maybe he brings him back somehow?

Looks really good though. I wasn't sure about Gal Gadot before I saw the first film, but she plays the part very well.

So is this based on a specific comic book storyline or are they again just trying to capitalise on this current trend for 80s nostalgia?

Looks fun, hope it's a little more than laughing at 80's fashions though.

Director Patty Jenkins has announced that it's still being released in US cinemas on December 25th, but now also streaming on HBOMax the same day.

No word on UK streaming yet... obviously most of our cinemas are closed. So I'd expect they would have some plan for this?

In cinemas over here on Dec 16th assuming there's any open.

Otherwise it's $14.99 per month for HBOMax. Surely you can access that with a VPN?

Well as Cineworld have just announced they're probably likely to fold then expect film studios to slowly die out as I would imagine that without cinema tickets the profits will be miniscule.

Remember it was the government that did this to businesses, not a virus.

Looking back - I thought this was quite witty.

with a US credit card? Faff about setting up a VPN and get to work with the TV and App? ..... for the privilege to pay them $15?

Don't want to watch the film that bad..

I would pay the rental fee if the put it out on google play etc though.

If the Sky exclusivity deal for HBO content means they've scuppered themselves and can't stream it in the UK or they have to put it out on Sky movies or pay per view.... They can jog on... Sky/NowTV streaming quality is absolute crap. Not worth £10-15 for that 720p garbage.

Film studios to fold? I highly doubt that will happen.

I can't imagine that the profits made from only showing a film on a streaming service will ever compete with the kind of takings you see from cinemas.

If you have 5 people in the cinema, that's 5 tickets. If you watch it at home there could 5+ people watching but they only get the 1 "fee".

Oh, and plus most films on streaming services end up available to download illegally within minutes it seems of them being made available.

How is the British government to blame for the folding of a Cinema chain that voluntarily closed its own cinemas because people weren't going to the cinema during a global pandemic - all before this 2nd lockdown was even implemented btw?

All that will happen if Cineworkd folds is a bigger company will buy them up and relaunch once the pandemic subsides to a more manageable point. The real fall out will be that it looks like Disney seem to be interested in buying up failing chains, and I can't see the future being great for cinemagoers if the studios have control of the chains.

I heard - anecdotally - that the chains are using lockdown to upgrade venues and are spending a lot of money on marketing for 2021.
