Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today- November 19
‘Wonder Woman 84’ Heads to HBO Max
Warner Bros. has announced that “Wonder Woman 1984” will now be available in theatres and on HBO Max December 25th. The sequel to 2017’s title of the same name will be available for “a month”, only for HBO Max subscribers in the US at no extra cost – other countries will have the theatrical-only option.
The move comes following the film’s multiple delays amid the global coronavirus pandemic –originally scheduled for a June 5th premiere before the August, October and now December. Director Patty Jenkins tweeted on Wednesday urging fans to “Watch it IN THEATERS, where it is made safe to do so (check out the great work theaters have done to make it so!)”
Other films that shifted to streaming include “Mulan”, “Black Beauty”, “Soul” and “Hamilton” (Disney+), “Greyhound” (Apple TV+), and “The Witches” (HBO Max).
I can’t wait for the world to see this amazing woman on the screen. She’ll blow your mind and warm your heart. @GalGadot killed it in this film, and she does all that great and hard work for only the most honorable reasons. She is a true #Wonderwoman so I hope you enjoy #WW84 https://t.co/Q7fYuNAEab

At least we get to see WW1984 as Patty Jenkins intended it: on a TV screen, with regular breaks for trips to the fridge, and the loo, and bits where you rewind it because you let your attention drift to Twitter and you didn’t quite catch it.

Regina King’s ‘One Night in Miami…’ Trailer Released
Amazon Prime has released the official “One Night in Miami…” trailer. Regina King will be making her directorial debut in this drama flick, a fictional account of one incredible night where icons Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke, and Jim Brown gathered discussing their roles in the civil rights movement and cultural upheaval of the 60s.
The official synopsis reads: On one incredible night in 1964, four icons of sports, music, and activism gathered to celebrate one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. When underdog Cassius Clay, soon to be called Muhammad Ali, (Eli Goree), defeats heavy weight champion Sonny Liston at the Miami Convention Hall, Clay memorialized the event with three of his friends: Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge). Based on the award-winning play of the same name, and directed by Regina King, One Night in Miami… is a fictional account inspired by the historic night these four formidable figures spent together. It looks at the struggles these men faced and the vital role they each played in the civil rights movement and cultural upheaval of the 1960s. More than 40 years later, their conversations on racial injustice, religion, and personal responsibility still resonate.
“One Night in Miami…” premieres on the streaming platform January 15,2020.
