More importantly, watching the movies will require no extra cost to HBO Max subscribers. Warner Bros. announced the news on Thursday, citing the hybrid streaming and theatrical release change as "as a strategic response to the impact of the ongoing global pandemic, particularly in the U.S." All films will release on HBO Max in 4K Ultra HD and HDR on HBO Max-
