HBO Max: Warner Bros. 2021 Film Release Schedule

Warner Bros. may have started a brand new development within the cinematic market. They just announced that they will release their entire 2021 slate simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max. Now, the official trailer does mention that the films and release schedules are subject to change. It has been quite confusing with all the delays in 2020, so let’s look at a quick rundown of all films slated to release next year. The new HBO Max release schedule will technically start as of December 25th with Wonder Woman 1984. So, as of now, Mortal Kombat will kickstart the year but we still have no trailer for the film, so there is a good chance it will get delayed. Here is an overview of all Warner Bros. 2021 films:

 

January 15th, 2021: Mortal Kombat

March 5th, 2021: Tom & Jerry

March 12th, 2021: The Many Saints of Newark

May 21st, 2021: Godzilla vs. Kong

June 4th, 2021: The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

June 18th, 2021: In the Heights

July 16th, 2021: Space Jam: A New Legacy

August 6th, 2021: The Suicide Squad

October 1st, 2021: Dune

November 5th, 2021: Elvis

November 19th, King Richard

December 22nd, 2021: The Matrix 4

December 22nd, 2021: Sherlock Holmes 3

No Release Date: Judas and the Black Messiah

No Release Date: Those Who Wish Me Dead

No Release Date: Malignant

No Release Date: CryMacho

 

It is quite an extensive list of films that we can expect to get released in the coming year. We will see if any of these dates will change throughout the year, especially if some of the films that are still in production might face delays due to the pandemic. HBO Max’s subscriber numbers are sure to rise with every major release, so it’ll be interesting to see if it will be able to compete with Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+ through this strategy. We will see if other film giants will also follow in this digital revolution.
