Wonder Woman 1984 will now be releasing in theaters in India on Christmas Eve, December 24th, a day earlier than originally announced. Warner Bros. India announced the new release date on Thursday through its social media channels but did not provide any reason why it happened. It is possible that Warner Bros. is concerned about piracy, as Wonder Woman premiered on HBO Max in the US on Christmas Day in 1984, and the India release a day earlier is a day and a half ahead. However, a source told Gadgets 360 that the studio had never set the Christmas date and that they weren’t finished until Christmas Eve for Wonder Woman’s 1984 Indian debut.
This is good news for DC fans in India who will see Wonder Woman in 1984 a day ahead of their counterparts in the US and Canada. Of course, the worldwide rollout of the new Wonder Woman movie begins on December 16 in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Asia, so India is still lagging behind. There are now only eight days instead of nine. You can thank COVID-19 for this because Tenet – the Christopher Nolan film, also by Warner Bros. – opens in Indian cinemas this Friday, December 4th. And it’s only natural that the studio wouldn’t want two of its own films to clash at the box office, one that’s already ravaged by the pandemic.
Gal Gadot returns as the title superhero in Wonder Woman in 1984, along with Chris Pine as the pilot and their love interest Steve Trevor, who died in the original Wonder woman, Kristen Wiig as archaeologist Barbara Ann Minerva, who becomes the villain Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as the charismatic businessman Maxwell Lord, who helps Barbara in her search, Robin Wright as the also deceased general of the Amazon Army Antiope Wonder womanand Connie Nielsen as Themyscira queen and Wonder Woman mother Hippolyta. Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, Gabriella Wilde, Kristoffer Polaha and Amr Waked have unknown roles.
Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in India on December 24th in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
