Lasso that audience!

Like many movies in this time of pandemic, Wonder Woman 1984 has been pushed back quite a lot. But that’s enough pushing, says DC and Warner Bros., as the sequel to the hugely successful 2017 film starring Gal Gadot finally gets a release date. 

Warner announced that Wonder Woman 1984 will lasso fans and audiences online and in actual, physical theaters—yes, the kind we used to frequent before Covid made the world a horrible place.

Gal Gadot returns as Diana Prince on Dec. 25 in theaters worldwide and on HBO Max (but only in the US, it seems).

“Today we announced that Wonder Woman 1984, the eagerly anticipated tentpole film by Patty Jenkins—with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine reprising their roles as Diana Prince and Steve Trevor —is going to be released worldwide in theaters on December 25th,” WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar wrote in a blogpost. “In the United States, we will also be making this remarkable movie available on HBO Max at no extra cost the same day that Wonder Woman 1984 premieres in theaters, for the first month of the film’s release.”

This comes after DC and Warner released an updated trailer for its other highly anticipated film Justice League: The Snyder Cut, which will come out on HBO Max in 2021.

Gal Gadot expressed excitement over the announcement in a post on Instagram: “We’ve all waited a long time for this one to come. I can’t tell you how excited I am for all of you to see this movie. […] Wonder Woman 1984 is a special one for me and I can only hope it’ll be as special to you too.”
