HBO Max, a streaming platform created by Warner Brothers, resurfaced in May 2020. Despite the fact that it’s not even past a year, the show has created various controversies regarding the content it will have. from 2021. Honestly, HBO Max does have a lot of content to watch when it comes to competition from other streaming giants. The platform features shows and movies that were originally created by HBO. Then we have the blockbuster films by Warner Brothers coming out live on streaming services the day they hit theaters. HBO Max even includes Studio Ghibli classics as well as canonical archives and more.
Most controversy was created around HBO Max in early December 2020 when the company rocked the world. Warner Brothers announced that they would release Wonder Woman 1984, a multibillion dollar film, on the streaming network. Then later, they decided to release all 17 of their films due out in 2021, on HBO Max. This created a lot of tension in the media and no one could stop talking about the cinematic losses that cinemas in America and around the world would face. But well, this fact actually helps curious viewers out there who want to see this masterpiece.
I mean, definitely a movie like Dune and the Matrix 4 is something that would actually look really good if we watched it in a dark, well-seated cinema. But at least we can watch it from home right now without the need to be afraid of the Corona Virus or having to watch these films after the situation subsided two years later. So, here we have finished some of the titles that will be releasing on HBO Max in March 2021 and will be the entertaining factor in our lives.
