Top Grossing Warner Bros Movies 2021

Top Grossing Warner Bros Movies 2021: Warner Bros. recently struck a tremor through the business when they revealed that all of their 2021 films would be released simultaneously in theatres and on HBO Max, their streaming service.

Indeed, until 2021, all films, big and small, will follow an unprecedented day-and-date release plan, offering fans the option of sitting at home and watching something like Dune on their couch, or traveling to a theatre to see it on the big screen.

Many in the business, including some of WB’s most prestigious directors, have been outraged by the move, but the studio appears to be sticking to its guns.

So, if you’re curious about which Warner Bros. films will be available on HBO Max in 2021, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of titles scheduled for this unique distribution strategy.
