WONDER WOMAN 1984 TV Spot Sees Diana Prince Take To The Skies Ahead Of The Movie's Christmas Day Release
A new TV spot for Wonder Woman 1984 hypes the sequel's Christmas Day debut on HBO Max, while also showcasing a young Diana Prince and the Amazon warrior taking to the skies as she rides the lightning...
Wonder Woman 1984 has not had an easy journey to the big screen. Shooting on the movie wrapped in 2018, but multiple delays have seen it slip further and further down the calendar to Christmas Day.
However, when it became clear to Warner Bros. that it would be impossible for the DC Comics adaptation to benefit from a proper theatrical run over the holidays, the decision was made to have the sequel debut on the big and small screen at the same time (courtesy of the struggling HBO Max).
Whatever happens next, Wonder Woman 1984 will almost certainly make a loss, but the studio was understandably concerned about Patty Jenkins' movie growing stale the longer it sat around and are using this opportunity to try and bring more eyes to the streaming service. It will, of course, be released in theaters overseas (including China) so there's a chance some of those costs will be recouped.
Now, the marketing campaign is once again beginning to pick up steam, and Warner Bros. is pushing that December 25th debut hard. That's understandable when HBO Max so far behind Netflix and Disney+, and with a lack of 4K, 1080p will be the only option for DC Fans this Christmas.
That's a shame, as the visuals in the sequel look amazing, which is evident in this TV spot:
