Fans from the UK and Ireland will get the chance to watch Wonder Woman 1984 in their homes sooner than expected. As the COVID-19 emergency is still keeping the world in check, the studios are looking for new solutions at the box-office. That’s why Warner Bros. will release Patty Jenkins’ latest film on premium video on demand in the UK and Ireland on Jan. 13, less than a month after it hit theaters on Dec. 16. It will come as a 48-hour rental while keeping its run in theaters. According to Variety, Warner Bros. failed to seal a deal with pay-TV operator Sky. Besides that, HBO Max hasn’t arrived yet in those countries, influencing the studios’ choice. Usually, the UK’s theatrical window is roughly 16 weeks, setting a precedent for the future.
“In recognition of varying current market restrictions and to service the massive fan interest in Wonder Woman 1984, this film can be enjoyed by fans and families on the big screen where available in cinemas now, and in the comfort of their own home through Premium Video on Demand (PVOD) in the U.K. and Ireland starting on January 13,” the studio said in a statement. “The film will continue to be available in cinemas where they are open, whilst also being available to watch at home for a 48-hour rental from participating digital retailers.”
In the US, Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters and HBO Max on December 25.
