Warner Bros. and AMC Theaters have agreed to a 45-day showcase for their 2022 films.
As the theater landscape shifts amid the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been disagreements between studios and theater chains. Warner Bros. is releasing its 2021 movies in theaters and on HBO Max on the same day. Disney is also doing something similar on its streaming service with select movies.

AMC CEO Adam Aron had the following to say about the deal:
“It is especially gratifying that Warner Bros. is once again embracing a theatrical window. For us at AMC, it’s especially nice to work so harmoniously with Warner Bros. once again. We are in active dialogue with all major studies on this topic. We are hearing considerable support that an exclusive theater window is an important way to build a successful movie franchise. “

The movie will also show the hero using his detective skills more than we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new film trilogy with Pattinson.
