HBO Max Is A Temporary Solution
Ann Sarnoff, president, and CEO of WarnerMedia Studios (the studio that owns Warner Bros) explained that this is only a 1-year plan. “We’re living in unprecedented times that call for creative solutions, including this new initiative for the Warner Bros. Pictures Group, ”said Warner Bros. CEO Ann Sarnoff. “No one wants films back on the big screen more than we do. We know new content is the lifeblood of theatrical exhibition, but we have to balance this with the reality that most theaters in the U.S. will likely operate at reduced capacity throughout 2021. ”
