Every Warner Bros 2021 movie premiering on HBO Max: Heres the full list

(Pocket-lint) – Warner Bros has announced plans to home-release some of its biggest films due to come out in 2021, which means you will be able to stream them from the comfort of your couch without a cable subscription and without having to risk your health by visiting a cinema. 

Keep in mind Warner Bros recently announced the highly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984 is set to premiere on HBO Max and in theatres on the same day (25 December 2020) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the studio has announced similar plans for 17 additional blockbusters scheduled to premiere in 2021. They include what should’ve been some of the highest-grossing titles of the new year.

It plans to stream long-awaited sequels, best-selling adaptations, and other movies with A-list stars such as Hugh Jackman, Denzel Washington, and Will Smith. They will still all get theatrical releases, which may be good news for cinemas as well as movie buffs outside the US where HBO Max is unavailable. Warner Bros also made clear the films won’t stay on HBO Max forever; they will be removed 30 days after debuting on the service.
