Warner Bros. has unveiled international release dates for Wonder Woman 1984 after announcing last week that the superhero sequel would arrive in the U.S. on Christmas Day in select theaters as well as on HBO Max.
Roughly half of all theaters in the U.S. remain closed due to the surge in COVID-19 cases , as are hundreds of theaters across Europe, though movie theaters in France were recently given permission to reopen on Dec. 15, the day before WW84 opens in that country.
Patty Jenkins returned to direct the sequel, which brings back Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen, and introduces villains Cheetah and Maxwell Lord, played by Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal. The first film grossed more than $800 million worldwide, and though the sequel is unlikely to come close to that figure, it is expected to spur millions of sign-ups for HBO Max, which could use a marquee title to attract subscribers, if only to keep up with Netflix, Amazon and Disney+ in the ongoing Streaming Wars.
