Recently, director Adam Wingard has touched the controversial decision of Warner Bros to release films in theatres and on HBO Max simultaneously.
Adam has directed films like You’re Next, The Guest, which were much smaller in scale when compared to the latest monster saga. As Godzilla vs Kong is Adam’s first biggie, he wanted it to be a big-screen experience and the decision of simultaneous release did hurt him initially.
In an interview with Deadline, Adam Wingard said, “If you’d asked me in December, it would have been a different answer. The day HBO Max surprised all of us, it was December 3, my birthday. Here I am, going out of town to celebrate, and I get a text from my agent, Dan Rabinow. Immediately incoming: the announcement that all WarnerMedia titles are going to HBO Max. I was like, ‘What the hell?’”
The film released on 24th March in India.
