‘Friends’ Reunion Drew More HBO Max Sign-Ups Than Any 2021 Warner Bros. Film Debut

‘Friends’ Reunion Drew More HBO Max Sign-Ups Than Any 2021 Warner Bros. Film Debut
The biggest driver of subscribers for HBO Max in 2021 was not exclusive premieres of blockbuster films like “Godzilla vs. Kong” or even Zack Snyder’s long-awaited redo of “Justice League.” Instead, it was a show that hasn’t aired a new episode since George W. Bush was president. HBO Max’s highly anticipated “Friends: The Reunion” was responsible for the largest single-day sign-ups for the WarnerMedia-backed streaming service this year, outpacing “Godzilla Vs. Kong” and “Mortal Kombat,” according to data released Friday by the market measuring firm Antenna. As you can see below, “Wonder Woman 1984” is still responsible for the largest single day of sign-ups, last December. The “Friends” reunion — the first time the main cast were all in the same room together since the NBC comedy’s series finale 17 years ago — overindexed when it came to female sign-ups. Over the three days since its May 27 premiere, new

What’s Next for Wonder Woman?

What’s Next for Wonder Woman?
Fans of the Princess of the Amazons have been asking this question for a while, and we finally have the answer laid out to us today. It is now official that Wonder Woman can fly. It was not clear whether Diana had the power of flight for a long time, and that question had fans tossing and turning, but not anymore…

Confirmed in mainstream continuity, Wonder Woman is flying into the new era of DC Comics. Throughout various renditions of Wonder Woman, the Princess of the Amazons has taken different capabilities, such as being brought to life by the gods after being moulded from clay. She has been seen leaping over tall buildings and flying an invisible jet, but her power has now been confirmed in Wonder Woman #772 by Becky Cloonan and Michael Conrad with illustrations by Travis Moore and Paulina Ganuecheau.

Diana has also finally accepted her title as Wonder Woman.

What Time Does ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ Release on HBO Max?

What Time Does ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ Release on HBO Max?
After a five-year hiatus that felt much, much longer than that, the “Conjuring” franchise is back with its third main-series movie, “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.” While stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are back as Lorraine and Ed Warren, this time we’ve got a new director, Michael Chaves, who takes over from James Wan.

As is usually the case with these movies and the franchise spinoffs, “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” is based on a true story. The horror flick follows the notorious 1981 murder trial of 19-year-old Arne Johnson, who claimed he stabbed his landlord to death while under the influence of a demonic force.

The story goes that, after a young boy shows signs of demon possession, the Warrens get called in to do an exorcism — but Arne interferes, and begs the demon or demons to leave the boy and possess him instead.

‘Friends: The Reunion’ Was Almost as Big as ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ on HBO Max
How big was “Friends: The Reunion” for HBO Max? Almost superhero-big, according to third-party data.

Friends: The Reunion” was watched by an estimated 29% of U.S. streaming households on May 27, the first day of its release, as measured by TVision, a connected-tv analytics provider. Viewers of the special on HBO Max were 55.4% female, and more than 50% were in the 35-54 age demo.

By comparison, DC’s “Wonder Woman 1984” reached 32% of U.S. streaming households when it bowed on Christmas Day 2020 on HBO Max, per TVision. According to Nielsen, “WW84” was the most-viewed title across U.S. streaming services for Dec. 21-27, 2020, registering nearly 2.3 billion minutes streamed.

The “Friends” homecoming special drew a larger audience than HBO Max’s April 23 debut of “Mortal Kombat,” which TVision estimated reached 16% of streaming homes — although the movie also opened in theaters the same day.

Meanwhile, “WandaVision” on Disney Plus reached 34% of streaming households on Jan.

Why It Was Smart for ‘F9’ to Skip Memorial Day Weekend in the U.S.

Why It Was Smart for ‘F9’ to Skip Memorial Day Weekend in the U.S.
F9” opened in China May 21 for a first-day total of $59 million, one of the five places where the latest in the “Fast and Furious” franchise began its global launch. With about $70 million among the territories, the biggest series outside the comic-book universe is doing exactly the sort of business the studio and the broader industry hoped for.

Meanwhile, we’re approaching a holiday weekend in the U.S. where two significant titles — “A Quiet Place Part II” and “Cruella” — open May 28. So why not F9? No one release will restore pre-pandemic conditions, but far more than “Tenet,” “Wonder Woman 1984,” or even “Black Widow,” “F9” is viewed as the ideal multi-quadrant draw to relaunch North American theaters. So why wait until June 25?

In deciding to hold off the domestic release of “F9,” Universal appears to have has balanced multiple complicated factors and found the route that can best maximize its impact.

Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot, who was born in Israel and served a mandatory two years as a soldier in the Israel Defense Forces, released a statement on the recent violence between Israel and Palestine that drew backlash from fans.

This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long. Israel deserves to live as a free and safe nation. Our neighbors deserve the same.

‘The Little Things’ and ‘Nomadland’ Drop Their Prices and Rise on the VOD Charts

‘The Little Things’ and ‘Nomadland’ Drop Their Prices and Rise on the VOD Charts
A simple price change created this week’s biggest shift in VOD viewing. “The Little Things,” the Denzel Washington-starring serial killer thriller that debuted day-and-date in theaters and on HBO Max, dropped its $19.99 premium VOD to $5.99. It rose to #1 at Apple TV and gained top-10 showings at FandangoNow and Google Play. Spectrum Cable’s chart should pick it up this week.

In its second week of PVOD play, “The Marksman” notched #1 at FandangoNow, #2 at Apple TV, and #3 at Google Play. That’s a strong response for the last two which, unlike FandangoNow, list by number of rentals rather than revenue.

Nomadland,” newly reduced in price at Spectrum, placed #1 there. The Best Picture winner fell elsewhere, notching lower slots at Apple TV and GooglePlay. Original Screenplay winner “Promising Young Woman,” a presence for four months in PVOD and now VOD, was the only other Oscar recipient to remain on the lists.

Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot expands on previous reports of director Joss Whedon’s alleged abusive behavior on the set of “Justice League,” saying in a new interview, “he threatened my career.”

The new remarks came in a sit-down with Israeli news station N12, where she was asked about a statement she gave in April confirming that she “had issues” with Whedon when he was brought on to complete filming of “Justice League” in 2017 after original director Zack Snyder left the production following the death of his daughter.

“I had my issues with Joss and I handled it. He threatened my career and said that if I do something he will make sure my career is miserable and I took care of it on the spot,” Gadot said.

Emily Blunt, John Krasinski Ask Paramount for Money After ‘Quiet Place 2’ Window Shortened — Report

Emily Blunt, John Krasinski Ask Paramount for Money After ‘Quiet Place 2’ Window Shortened — Report
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are reportedly seeking financial compensation from Paramount Pictures after the studio decided to shorten the theatrical release window for their upcoming horror sequel “A Quiet Place Part II.” A new report from Bloomberg states that both actors (Krasinki also wrote and directed the film) have “a contract that compensates them based on the film’s box-office performance.” That performance has now been minimized by Paramount’s decision to move “A Quiet Place Part II” to streaming via Paramount+ 45 days after the film’s May 28 theatrical opening. Some exhibitors will still be operating at limited capacity when the film has its theatrical release.

Per Bloomberg: “The stars are worried that many potential theater fans might wait for the film to be available for home viewing, reducing the box-office receipts, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing a private matter. The original ‘A Quiet Place

Paramount Reportedly Won’t Make A New Deal With John Krasinski & Emily Blunt After ‘A Quiet Place II’ Streaming News
When it was announced that WarnerMedia was going to send all of Warner Bros’ 2021 film slate to theaters and on HBO Max on the same day, there was quite a bit of pushback behind the scenes from filmmakers. Reports surfaced that WarnerMedia had to quickly renegotiate deals with Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot for “Wonder Woman 1984,” for example, after the release strategy would clearly cause issues with their current profit-sharing deals.

Mark Wahlberg Movie Infinite Signals That Paramount Plus Will Evolve Beyond Star Trek

Mark Wahlberg Movie Infinite Signals That Paramount Plus Will Evolve Beyond Star Trek
Paramount+, once known as CBS All Access, has mainly defined itself with an overwhelming wave of Star Trek television content. However, surrounded by high-end competition from Disney+, HBO Max, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, the rebranded streamer is looking to live long and prosper beyond the space-faring franchise, having announced grandiose plans to expand its movie content. Most notably, sci-fi film Infinite, directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Mark Wahlberg, will be the service’s first theater-skipping feature offering; a surefire sign of things to come.

Obviously, the boat of box-office-bypassing movies already left its proverbial dock some time ago; a notion recently exemplified by streaming’s dominance of the 2021 Academy Awards via Best Picture winner Nomadland (which debuted on Hulu in the U.S.), along with The Sound of Metal (Amazon Prime Video), Judas and the Black Messiah (HBO Max), Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (Netflix), Mank (Netflix) and

Another Summer Without Comic-Con: Why the Event’s Future Is in Doubt

Another Summer Without Comic-Con: Why the Event’s Future Is in Doubt
Theme parks are reopening, concerts are being staged, and theaters are screening tentpoles again. But one summer entertainment standard — San Diego Comic-Con — will be conspicuously absent from the upcoming season of pandemic recovery. Instead, organizers are staging Comic-Con@Home for the second year in a row, taking place July 23 – 25. Last year’s version saw lackluster reception, with none of the big announcements or panels that typically put Comic-Con on the international stage.

There will, however, be an in-person event in November on Thanksgiving weekend, but even organizers are managing expectations for the gathering, which has been purposely packaged as a “special edition.” “The show is not Comic-Con, our massive convention held in July. Comic-Con Special Edition is expected to be a show of fewer days with a smaller gathering of attendees and fans,” Comic-Con spokesman David Glanzer told IndieWire.

The likely result is that it will be a whopping three

Michael B. Jordan Pic ‘Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse’ Gets Plenty Of Action In U.S. Samba TV Households

Michael B. Jordan Pic ‘Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse’ Gets Plenty Of Action In U.S. Samba TV Households
In the wake of Amazon Prime Video clicking 175 million customers, the streamer’s acquisition of Skydance/Paramount/New Republic’s Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse drew 2.3 million U.S. households in its first weekend according to Samba TV.

That number beats the 1.6M Samba TV households which streamed Amazon’s Borat Subsequent Moviefilm over its first weekend of Oct. 23-25. The third party service didn’t poll viewers for Amazon’s Coming 2 America, which Amazon has claimed is the most-watched streaming movie title during the pandemic, even though official figures weren’t reported (Nielsen said a month later that the pic’s first week of March 1-7 clocked 1.4 billion minutes; the first No. 1 win ever for Prime).

While Samba’s number doesn’t tell the whole story about the Michael B. Jordan film’s global or U.S. reach, it’s the best indication we have on the pic

HBO Max New Releases: May 2021

HBO Max New Releases: May 2021
Do not adjust your WiFi settings. No, you are not experiencing a severe case of Deja Streaming-vu. HBO Max’s list of new releases for May 2021 are indeed highlighted by two very recent WarnerMedia hits.

For starters, Tenet finally makes its long-awaited HBO Max this month. Mark your calendars as May 1 is the day that you can finally watch Christopher Nolan’s latest cerebral thriller. Of course, Tenet already had its theatrical release, but obviously that was not really an option for many of us. In addition to Tenet, Wonder Woman 1984 makes its triumphant return to HBO Max this month on May 13. The Wonder Woman sequel already premiered on HBO Max this past December, now it’s getting a second run on the streamer.

In terms of newer originals, May is relatively light for HBO Max. The Jean Smart-starring comedy Hacks premieres on May 13. The latest Adventure Time
