Wonder Woman 1984 has been delayed once again. The new release date will be Christmas. Right now 70% of movie theaters are open, but two of the biggest markets, New York and California, remain closed. Warner Bros. was waiting to see how Tenet would do over Labor Weekend before making the decison on WW84. Tenet managed to pull in $20 million, so it looks like people aren’t quite ready to head back to cinemas in droves.
“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,” said Toby Emmerich, Warmer Bros. Motion Picture Group chairman. “We’re very proud of the film and look forward to bringing it to audiences for the holidays.”
Director Patty Jenkins added, “First and foremost let me say how much Gal and I love all our devoted Wonder Woman fans around the world, and your excitement for ‘WW84’ couldn’t make us happier or more eager for you to see the movie. Because I know how important it is to bring this movie to you on a big screen when all of us can share the experience together, I’m hopeful you won’t mind waiting just a little bit longer. With the new date on Christmas Day, we can’t wait to spend the holidays with you!”
Hopefully Wonder Woman will have her time to shine again this holiday season.
