Upcoming HBO Max New Film in 2021
2021 will be packed with new TV shows and movies. And most of them will be released on HBO Max. The parent company, WarnerMedia, launched the streaming service in May 2020. The streaming platform already started giving tough competition to others. A few weeks ago, Warner Bros. announced that the studio would release the big-budget film on HBO Max on the same day as in theaters. The streaming platform has presented some big projects, including The Witches, Unpregnant, An American Pickle, and many more.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus, studios cannot release the movies in the theaters as the cinemas were closed for a larger period of the year. The audience is also not feeling safe to come out to public places. Hence Warner Bros. decided to release Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max one month before its wide release. Here is a list of the upcoming movies in HBO Max.
Doug Liman’s Locked Down is a romantic comedy heist movie written by Steven Knight. The movie’s plot revolves around a couple who take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic and decide to pull off a heist at one of the world’s exclusive department store Harrods. It stars Anne Hathaway, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ben Stiller, Stephen Merchant, Dulé Hill, Jazmyn Simon, and Mark Gatiss.
The movie’s development started in September 2020, and the filming of the movie started later that month. The movie is scheduled to stream on HBO Max in December 2020 and is planned for theatrical release in January 2021.
The Little Things
John Lee Hancock’s The Little Things is a crime thriller movie produced by Hancock and Mark Johnson. The movie stars Denzel Washington as Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon, Rami Malek as L.A. Sheriff Department Sergeant Jim “Jimmy” Baxter, Jared Leto as Albert Sparma, Natalie Morales, Terry Kinney as Captain Farris, and Chris Bauer as Sal Rizoli. The film’s storyline explores clashes between the Los Angeles detective and Kern County deputy during an investigation to find a serial killer.
The movie’s filming started on 2 September 2019, in Los Angeles, California, and concluded in December 2019. Steven Spielberg wrote the first draft of the movie in 1993. However, the director left the project as it was too dark. The cast of the film was finalized in 2019, and Washington signed for the movie.
The Little Things scheduled to release in theatres on 29 January 2021 and stream on the HBO Max by Warner Bros.
Friends Reunion Special
In mid-2021, Warner Bros. plans to release the most-awaiting movie of the 90s sitcom Friends, Friends Reunion. According to an article in The Hollywood Reporter, the movie has been under development since 12 November 2019. HBO confirmed the news on 21 February 2020 and shared that the film is working under the title, The One Where They Got Back Together. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the production and shooting of the film were postponed indefinitely. Around a month ago, in November 2020, the cast of the film Matthew Perry (played the character of Chandler Bing in the original series) tweeted that the team will start the shooting in march 2021.
The whole crew and cast of the original show will be back for the movie. There is much hype for the movie as it was one of the most loved and successful shows of the 90s created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman. The series ranked 21 on the TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time and won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2002. Fans can expect the movie to air within a few months after the completion of the shoot.
The above are a few films that the audience can watch on HBO Max in 2021.
