Wonder Woman 1984 Early Reviews Are In; HBOMax to Stream in 4K


 

When Warner Bros. announced in mid-November that Wonder Woman 1984 will be available on HBO Max the same day it premieres in select theaters, many were chagrined — not because of the decision to bring the movie right to the living room but because, at the time, all content on HBO Max still topped out at 1080p resolution. But it turns out that Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first title that starts to rectify that when it’s released on December 25th.

WarnerMedia has announced that Wonder Woman 1984 will stream on HBO Max in 4K. The film will also support (depending on what your setup is capable of) Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and HDR10. The 4K stream will be available on “Apple TV 4K, Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, Amazon Fire TV Cube / 4K Fire TV Edition smart TVs, Chromecast Ultra, AT&T TV, and supported Android TV devices.” Notably missing from the list, of course, is Roku; HBO Max remains unavailable on Roku’s platform as the two sides remain unable to reach a deal to put it there. HBO Max is available on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, but it seems 4K support will have to wait on those devices.

 

 

Critics who have screened the film, are already giving it high praise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Director Patty Jenkins encouraged HBO Max viewers to “find the biggest highest quality screen” they can when watching the movie.
