Netflix & Cinemark Testing ‘Christmas Chronicles 2’ Publish ‘WW1984’ HBO Max Day & Date – .

EXCLUSIVE: A year ago, at that time, a stink broke out from the studios and NATO about Netflix and its audacity to actually crack the theater window with The Irishman. And a deal was on the table with AMC, but in the end the streamer wanted a limited time in theaters (far less than 45 days).

The Harkins necklace, another pendant of theater windows, I understand also allows Christmas Chronicles 2.

Regarding whether Wonder Woman broke the dam in 1984 and allowed streamers to book their abbreviated theatrical titles in full nationwide, sources tell me the Patty Jenkins-directed film is a one-off with the big racetracks (Cinemark has not yet officially announced that they’ll take the title, but many speculate they will. In essence, the exhibit still has the power to claim in normal economic times (when they return) that they don’t have a streamer title or a shortened window play.

But we will see. Everyone is saying that this Wonder Woman 1984 experiment of streaming days and data is a one-time experiment … until it succeeds.
