Why The Suicide Squad has released early in HBO Max
The pandemic era has forced a lot of high profile movies to be released in streaming services. For the fans this was a great escape as theatres are still not fully open due to the pandemic. Unfortunately for the movie studios it came as a double-edged sword.
Releasing in streaming services meant a lot of HD versions of the movies got leaked in the torrent sites and pirate websites before the release dates.
James Gunns ‘The Suicide Squad’ was also in fear of getting leaked early. The studio ultimately decided to release the movie on HBO Max on the same day as it was released in the United States.
Though it is worried that the theater traffic is being diminished due to the rise in coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, along with the film being offered free to HBO Max subscribers.
As of writing this article ‘The Suicide Squad’ has made $72.2 million in Box Office Worldwide.
What is The Suicide Squad about
The much-anticipated James Gunn movie, which is a DC film about a group of convicts who take on a suicidal mission, is a standalone sequel to David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad, and focuses on a team of super villains, including Peacemaker, Bloodsport, King Shark, Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang.
The villains are freed from Belle Reve penitentiary to take on a dangerous mission to destroy a Nazi-era prison and laboratory.
James Gunn has also included many Z-Level DC villains who has very less comic book or media exposure such as Savant, Blackguard, T.D.K., Javelin, Weasel, Ratcatcher, Polka-Dot Man and Mongal.
How long will The Suicide Squad be in HBO Max
Like other WB blockbusters, it’s only available on the streamer for one month. So it won’t be available after Sept. 5.
There have already been a lot of big names and blockbusters released in the streaming halls of HBO Max. Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Conjuring 3 The Devil Made Me Do It, Space Jam.
After the initial month-long release, these new films disappear from HBO Max for a while so they can have an online and DVD/Blu-ray home release, but they come back to HBO Max eventually.
Will it cost me extra to watch The Suicide Squad in HBO Max
Right now, HBO Max costs $14.99 a month.
