This article just came out that points to it being a success, but what is your opinion?
I personally think they left a ton of box office $$ sitting on the table by not having the movie release occur in advance of the HBO Max premiere. But so much of movie profitability right now is a mystery. For example, Wonder Woman 1984 was at the top of the online-purchase chart with around six weeks. How much ground does that make up on the lackluster box office? We don’t know - we just have to guess. But my guess is the 2021 strategy isn’t viewed internally as a win.
