Good morning, 

Get ready for the big screen to be brought to your home.

Warner Bros. Pictures Group announced all its 2021 movies will be available to stream with “exclusive one month access” on HBO Max in the U.S., although all films will still debut in theaters around the globe. Once that one month period has ended, films will solely be available in theaters. 

The hybrid model of distribution was created in response to the global pandemic, with cases in the U.S. continuing to surge. 

“This hybrid exhibition model enables us to best support our films, creative partners and moviegoing in general throughout 2021,” Warner Bros. Pictures Group Chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement. 

Warner Bros. Pictures Group films set to hit the silver screen in 2021 include Dune, In The Heights and Matrix 4.
