Wonder Woman 1984 Release Pushed Back to December 25, 2020
Posted on September 12, 2020
The release of Wonder Woman 1984 in theaters has been pushed back to December 25, 2020 because of the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak. This is the second delay for the film which was originally slated for an August release.
Deadline quotes Toby Emmerich, Warmer Bros. Motion Picture Group chairman as saying, "Patty is an exceptional filmmaker and with Wonder Woman 1984 she has delivered an incredibly dynamic film that moviegoers of all ages around the world will absolutely love. We're very proud of the film and look forward to bringing it to audiences for the holidays."
Deadline says the small box office debut for Tenet over Labor Day weekend discouraged Warner Bros. from releasing Wonder Woman 1984. The delay will probably cause other film release dates to change. A Forbes story calls it the Tenet effect but it is really the Covid effect.
This may also not be the last delay for Wonder Woman. The pandemic is not under control and the U.S. is heading into the Fall and Winter period and some experts are predicting the outbreak will get worse before it gets better. Increasing cases is not going to get people in movie theaters again. Only a vaccine or a massive drop in cases is going to do that.
