Warner Bros admits that further delays to some of its theatrical releases are possibly, throwing the light on the upcoming Wonder Woman 84 and Dune.
Warner Bros has thrown just a little bit of doubt on the planned release date for two of its other biggest films of the year: Wonder Woman 84 and Dune. Wonder Woman 84 has already been delayed, of course, having originally been due earlier in the year, before shifting to August, and then to its current date at the start of October.
Denis Villeneuve’s eagerly-awaited adaptation of Dune, meanwhile, remains in its December slot for the time being.
Yet whilst Christopher Nolan’s Tenet has become the film that’s definitely going to make it into cinemas this year, Warner Bros chief financial officer John Stephens has revealed via an investor call, and hinted at the possibility of “further delays in some of our titles”. “I am not certain where those are going to go”, he said of upcoming theatrical releases.
He admitted that the Covid-19 situation is “forcing us to look at new ways to distribute our content”.
Whilst he doesn’t explicitly say that the releases of Wonder Woman 84 and Dune are the films he’s talking about, given that they’re the two films post-Tenet left on Warner Bros’ schedule this year, it’s not too much of a stretch to see just where the words are likely directed.
More as we hear it. It seems that the bumps in this year’s release schedules may be far from over, sadly.
