Wonder Woman 1984 is a special one for me and I can only hope it’ll be as special to you too…You can watch it IN THEATERS (they’re doing an amazing job keeping it safe) and you can watch it on HBOMax from your homes.”

The official trailer also added the HBO Max information to the end.

Wonder Woman 1984 will premiere on Christmas Day, December 25.

There was a fear just a month ago that the movie might move to 2021. See what Patty and Gal shared about that possibility here…

'Wonder Woman 1984' Finalizes Release Plans; Will Debut Christmas Day in Theaters & on HBO Max

It’s official – Wonder Woman 1984 will be out in theaters on Christmas Day, December 25.

The film, starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Kristin Wiig, will also head to HBO Max for a dual release, Warner Bros. Pictures announced today.

The December 25 release date comes after multiple delays throughout the pandemic.

Wonder Woman 1984 was originally scheduled for June 5 before moving to August 14, and then October 2.

There is no set release date for international theaters just yet.

Wonder Woman 1984 will find the titular heroine facing off against two new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah.

Director Patty Jenkins recently opened up about the delayed release of the film, and was very hopeful the movie would be out by December.

“We just don’t know what the course of COVID is going to be like,” she told Variety.

'Wonder Woman 1984' Might Not Open on Christmas Anymore Amid Pandemic

Wonder Woman 1984 is currently scheduled to open in theaters on December 25, but now everyone’s not so sure amid the pandemic.

Pedro Pascal, co-star of the Gal Gadot-led film, which has already moved release dates six times (three since the pandemic), got candid about the reality of the release date in an interview with Variety.

“As far as movie releases are concerned and the tremendous way that the industry is having to improvise around these circumstances, nothing is surprising. We’re all getting used to things shifting day-to-day, hour-to-hour, you know? That’s what we’re all dealing with,” he revealed.

“I don’t think anybody can be confident of anything right now,” director Patty Jenkins told Variety.

“We just don’t know what the course of COVID is going to be like,” she continued, adding that she is “very hopeful” her film can still open in December.

“It feels totally possible to me,” she said.

“It’s unbelievably surreal. The biggest surreality about it is it’s supposed to be one adventure, right? You sign on to the movie, you write the movie, you direct the movie, you make the movie, the movie comes out, and you move on. Instead, like, I spent three years doing one thing, seven days a week, and then I just popped out of it to just nothing. No evidence of that [work]. I mean, that’s not true. I still work on, you know, Doritos bags bags and stuff like that all the time,” she said.

“For the longest time, the only people who’d seen the movie were the people who’d worked on the movie. We just showed our own agents. That was thrilling, to finally get to talk to people who didn’t know what the movie was. But it’s super weird to go from making a movie with such detail and being so excited for the experience of people getting to share in that with you, and then just going on to cleaning your house and cooking.”

“I don’t know,” Pedro Pascal went on to say about predicting the future of the film.

“That would that would be like assuming I know scientifically, economically, socially so many large things that are just way above my pay-grade. We have information, but still there’s so much more information to be had and sometimes the information feels like it changes so quickly. As maddening and as scary as that feels like to live with on a day-to-day basis, it does make sense, because this is new. Every time I’m like, ‘Well, why don’t we knoowwww?’ It’s like, because it’s a new virus. It just takes time to figure it out.”

In the meantime, Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot are teaming up on an entirely separate story that’s making headlines.

Gal Gadot Responds to 'Imagine' Backlash After She Organized the Infamous Video

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot is responding to the backlash associated with that now-infamous “Imagine” video, released just as Coronavirus lockdowns were beginning.

If you don’t remember, Gal and several other celebrities recorded themselves singing snippets from John Lennon‘s famous song to bring hope to the world. However, the video sparked backlash and a negative reaction in some as people called out celebrities for singing lines like “imagine no possessions” when they are privileged.

“Sometimes, you know, you try and do a good deed and it’s just not the right good deed,” Gal told Vanity Fair. “I had nothing but good intentions and it came from the best place, and I just wanted to send light and love to the world.

“I started with a few friends, and then I spoke to Kristen [Wiig],” Gal said. “Kristen is like the mayor of Hollywood. Everyone loves her, and she brought a bunch of people to the game. But yeah, I started it, and I can only say that I meant to do something good and pure, and it didn’t transcend.”

Kristen and Gal co-star in Wonder Woman 1984, which will now hit theaters on Christmas Day.

Gal Gadot to Star in 'Cleopatra,' Reunite With 'Wonder Woman' Director Patty Jenkins!

Cleopatra is coming to life!

Paramount Pictures just won an auction for a film that has Gal Gadot as Cleopatra, helmed by Patty Jenkins, Deadline reported Sunday (October 11).

The two also work together on the Wonder Woman film series.

The period biographical drama will be written by Laeta Kalogridis.

“This is the first major project package won by Paramount Motion Picture Group President Emma Watts in an auction that came down to Universal, Warner Bros, Netflix and Apple, I’ve heard,” the outlet reported.

“The film will be produced by Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven, Jenkins, Gadot and her Pilot Wave Motion Pictures partner Jaron Varsano. Kalogridis will be the exec producer. Deal closed yesterday after Gadot — the film was her idea and generated by Pilot Wave — took part in a select number of Zoom pitches, accompanied by Jenkins, Roven and Varsano, with Kalogridis laying out the beats of an epic story that is based on the research she did after Gadot enlisted her.”

The report also notes that “there is an accelerated timetable and Paramount prevailed because the studio…created an urgency to mount a big budget theatrical release film as quickly as possible.”

There also appears to be a competition to get to telling the story of Cleopatra first.

“Sony Pictures and producers Amy Pascal and Scott Rudin have for years developed an adaptation of the Stacy Schiff biography Cleopatra. Angelina Jolie was attached and Lady Gaga was later rumored for a possible coronation following her Oscar-nominated performance in A Star Is Born. The list of potential directors has included James Cameron, Denis Villenueve and David Fincher. The film has been through many rewrites, last from David Scarpa. I hear most recently that Eric Roth is working on it, meaning there might be a footrace here between Sony and Paramount to go first.”
