Warner Bros. announced Thursday that it will make its full 2021 film slate available to stream for a one-month period each, exclusively on HBO Max. Each of the films will be simultaneously released in theaters and available for the limited window on the streaming service. After the one-month period on HBO Max, the films will be taken off the platform and continue to show in theaters in the U.S. and internationally. HBO Max and Warner Bros. are both owned by WarnerMedia, which in turn is owned by AT&T. “We’re living in unprecedented times, which call for creative solutions, including this new initiative for the Warner Bros. Pictures Group,” said Ann Sarnoff, chair and CEO of WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group.

Other upcoming movies affected include “The Suicide Squad,” a new version of “Dune” and a “Matrix” sequel. Studios have been pushing to make their movies available in living rooms sooner than the typical timeline of roughly 90 days after they debut in cinemas. Warner Bros executives said the strategy would be in place for one year and was a response to the unique challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced many theaters to remain closed. The multi-year agreement is similar to one that Comcast-owned Universal made in July with AMC.

Warner Bros. announced on Thursday an unprecedented distribution strategy for its 2021 theatrical release slate as the coronavirus pandemic continues to devastate Hollywood. The movie studio will debut all of its 2021 movies on HBO Max in the US the same day they hit theaters. The movies will be available on Max for one month, after which they'll leave the streamer and continue to play in theaters. Warner Bros. had previously announced that "Wonder Woman 1984" would debut on HBO Max the same day it hits theaters on December 25. This is a huge step for Warner Bros., which committed to theaters earlier this year when it debuted Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" in cinemas.

AT&T's Warner Bros. announced on Thursday that all of its films scheduled to launch in 2021 will be released on HBO Max at the same time they are available in theaters. It's also a move that Warner Bros. already made with "Wonder Woman 1984," which will be released to theaters and HBO Max on Christmas Day. That movie was originally scheduled to come out in the summer, but was delayed several times before WarnerMedia decided to release it on HBO Max. HBO Max is AT&T's online video service, which launched in the U.S. in May. In July, Universal shortened the number of days films needed to run in theaters before they were available online through an agreement with AMC Theaters.

Hollywood movie producer Jason Blum recently told the New York Times that coronavirus has "shaken the movie business to its bones," but the head of Blumhouse Productions, best known for its horror films, is bullish on the post-Covid future of movie theaters. "I don't think movie theaters are going anywhere," Blum said, at Thursday's CNBC Evolve livestream on the transformation of the media landscape. But Blum says how long movies play in theatres is definitely going to change. Blum said the traditional studios will need to adopt a three-week theatrical release model for movie theaters — though for some films it could be longer. But he does see more collaboration between big tech companies in streaming and Hollywood, though tensions do remain.

New York (CNN Business) In a momentous decision that could upend the way movies are distributed in the future, Warner Bros., the world's second-largest movie studio, announced it would stream all of its 2021 movies at the same time they hit theaters. WarnerMedia, which owns CNN, is the parent company of Warner Bros. and HBO. Warner Bros.' announcement, however, is a massive leap that none of its competitors has yet taken. "Wonder Woman 1984" simultaneously in theaters and on the streaming service on December 25. Unlike those two movies, however, the Warner Bros.' theatrical slate won't cost HBO Max subscribers anything extra.

What to Watch During the Holidays

Like so many rituals this year, Hollywood’s holiday rollout is happening mostly online. From big-budget movies to lure families over Christmas, to serious-minded films to attract award nominations, they’re appearing on digital platforms, often at the same time (or soon after) they debut in theaters. It’s a tradeoff for filmmakers who know fewer people will see their movies in the ideal setting they had envisioned. “Certainly the experience is far better the bigger the TV and the better the sound. Below, some highlights from the films and TV series coming over the holiday entertainment season.

Discovery is expected to reveal more details on its streaming service during an event at noon ET Wednesday.

(CNN) Let's try and do this with no spoilers shall we? "The Undoing" is the latest "hurry up and binge it so we can talk about it" limited series and theories abound. Nicole Kidman stars in the HBO thriller (HBO is owned by CNN's parent company) as Grace Fraser, a successful therapist married to oncologist Jonathan (played by Hugh Grant) with whom she shares a young son who attends an elite private school in New York City. "A chasm opens in Grace's seemingly perfect life: a violent death, a missing spouse, and a chain of terrible revelations," is how HBO describes what happens. Kidman hopped on her verified Instagram account stories to share some famous fans theories and comments including rapper Travis Scott, reality star/entrepreneur Kourtney Kardashian and actresses Issa Rae and Kerry Washington.

But there are tons of movies out there that, from the right perspective, count as a holiday watch. And though the creatures wreak havoc, they cause destruction while occasionally donning Christmas hats and singing Christmas carols. 'Die Hard'The Bruce Willis action flick is a standard in the genre of unassuming Christmas movies -- and for good reason. The movie takes place during a holiday Christmas party. But because the film takes place in Philadelphia during Christmas, there are plenty of holiday gags that add to the movie's hilarity.

The internet howled at the unintentionally hilarious viral clip of James Woods playing Rudy Giuliani in a 2003 TV biopic. I went back and watched "Rudy: The Rudy Giuliani Story" and I'm shocked to report that it isn't terrible. Woods and Giuliani might be national embarrassments now, but it's no fault of "Rudy" the TV movie. "I'm just not much of a cuddler," said the actor James Woods, playing the titular character in the 2003 TV biopic, "Rudy: The Rudy Giuliani Story." I'm as surprised as anyone, but "Rudy" is kind of an ok TV movie.

Viewers like me might've cringed last Sunday watching HBO's "The Undoing" and hearing Nicole Kidman's character be corrected by her British mother-in-law for saying "none of us are" instead of "none of us is." Kidman's character says nothing. And though Grace's mother-in-law is English, this is not a difference between British English and American English. Those who stubbornly believe that "none" must always take a singular verb — as the Janet Fraser character believes — do so at the risk of uttering absurdities. Which leads us back to Kidman's character, who had it right after all.

Which Nxivm Show Is Better? An Expert Investigates
  + stars: | 2020-11-27 | by ( Barry Meier | ) sentiment -0.92   time to read: +1 min
It was the comedian Judd Apatow who convinced me to invest a little too much of my time in the two recent documentaries about the sex cult Nxivm. “The Vow” on HBO and “Seduced” on Starz have a combined running time of 13 hours. The group, which was based near Albany, N.Y., offered “self-improvement” courses, claiming they would help participants overcome fears and realize their potential. They have included friends and acquaintances I wouldn’t have expected to spend evenings absorbed by a sex cult. Then, my interest was further piqued when Apatow tweeted, “I may need to do a 300 hour podcast to explain why The Vow goes so much easier on the NXIVM cult than Seduced.”

HBO Max's new miniseries "The Flight Attendant" is a fun, frothy, stylish comedy/suspense espionage thriller. “The Flight Attendant” starts with flight attendant Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco) flirting with first class passenger Alex Sokolov (Michiel Huisman) on a flight to Bangkok. In "The Flight Attendant," though, you and the main character discovers who you are together, and who you are is less of a hero and more of a mess. Similarly, "The Flight Attendant” circles and swoops with exciting, amusing energy, but when you glance out the window, you find yourself hovering precariously over an abyss. Maybe in the last half of the series, Cassie will dry out and book herself passage to a better place.
