Fans of Wonder Woman, listen up, the sequel to Wonder Woman’s 2017 movie, Wonder Woman 1984, will be screening in Singapore on 17 Dec 2020.
Starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, the movie is set during the Cold War where Wonder Woman battles against media businessman Maxwell Lord and friend-turned enemy, Barbara Ann Minerva (Cheetah).
Here, you can take a look at the Wonder Woman 1984 main trailer below:
Wonder Woman 1984 to be Showing in S’pore from 17 Dec; A Week Earlier Than the US
The Covid-19 pandemic has made everything different, and it seems that movies aren’t spared either.
Usually, movies will be released first in theatres for at least 75 days before it gets released to TV networks.
This time, however, with many theatres still forced close, the Wonder Woman 1984 team decided to go about it differently.
For the first time in history, at least for a movie of this scale, Wonder Woman 1984 will be released simultaneously in US cinemas and HBO Max, a paid cable TV, on 25 Dec 2020.
As for countries without HBO Max, the film will be released starting from 16 Dec in cinemas.
And yes, you’ve probably realised something else.
Singapore, which doesn’t have HBO Max, will be seeing the movie first before our counterparts in the US, on 17 Dec 2020.
Repeatedly Pushed Back
Turns out, Wonder Woman 1984 was supposed to be released in June 2020.
However, because of the Covid-19 situation, they push the release of the movie several times until it was the last big-budget action film of the year.
While Hollywood has pushed many summer blockbusters to 2021, the Wonder Woman team decided to release it this year anyway.
While it wasn’t an “easy decision”, the team hope that this movie will help to bring a bit of “joy and reprieve” to viewers during this tumultuous time.
Excited to make your way to the cinemas on 17 Dec 2020? Just remember that, unlike before, you need to utilise the TraceTogether-SafeEntry function to enter the cinemas.
Previously, it was rolled out progressively at cinemas across Singapore from 26 Oct but as of 16 Nov 2020, all cinemas will require the TraceTogether-SafeEntry to access the premises.
Don’t worry, though, because according to a report, it seems that people surveyed found that checking-in via either the TraceTogether app or the token to be much faster.
With that said, are you excited for the upcoming blockbuster? Just make sure to adhere to all safe management measures when you’re out and about.
