What’s on HBO and HBO Max: New Shows and Movies for December 2020

HBO and HBO Max are rounding out the universally despised year with the long-awaited premieres of popular shows and movies.

“Wonder Woman 1984,” the hotly anticipated sequel to 2017’s “Wonder Woman,” will be debuting simultaneously on HBO Max and in theaters on Christmas Day. Gal Gadot faces off against a new enemy with superhuman strength and agility.

While production on “Euphoria” remains halted amid the COVID-19 pandemic, fans who have been clamoring for Season 2 since the acclaimed drama’s premiere last summer can rest easy with HBO’s two upcoming specials, the first of which debuts on Dec. 6 and picks up following Rue’s (Zendaya) relapse in the Season 1 finale.

If teen angst is not your brand of drama, opt for “The Flight Attendant,” starring Kaley Cuoco and Michiel Huisman, about an airline steward who awakes to find a dead man in her room, with no recollection of what happened.

Despite the recent recertification of Boeing’s 737 MAX 8 by the Federal Aviation Administration, some are still skeptical about the safety of the airplane.

The Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft had been grounded since 2019 when it was implicated in two crashes that killed 346 people.

Boeing Gains; EU Regulators Follow FAA on 737 MAX Clearance

Boeing Co.  (BA) – Get Report shares powered higher Tuesday after European regulators outlined a path that would allow the planemaker’s 737 MAX to return to service early next year.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which represents 27 EU member states, issued a draft statement that followed months of safety and performance checks on the workhorse aircraft, which suffered two fatal crashes in 2018 and 2019 that killed 346 people. The EU move, which includes a 28-day period for public comment, comes less than a week after a similar decision from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, which clear the MAX for a return to commercial service on December 29. 

The stock was also boosted by comments from Ryanair  (RYAAY) – Get Report CEO Michael O’Leary, who told Reuters that his budget carrier could buy additional 737 MAX aircraft as part of ongoing talks that

The Flight Attendant review: Kaley Cuoco Stars in Fizzy HBO Max Drama

The first few minutes of “The Flight Attendant” are as vivid and glamorous as the life Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco) projects to the world as she travels it. She hops from one blurry night out to the next, trading cities and men with practiced abandon. But when she wakes up in Bangkok after a blurry one-night stand to find her date (Michiel Huisman) horribly murdered, she does what most every rational human would do: she panics. Thousands of miles from home, with no memory of the end of her night, Cassie doesn’t know what else to do but clean up what she can and tear the hell out of there. As her entire life looks ready to collapse in front of her eyes, the camera tilts, the music becomes unbearably sharp, and the focus shifts just enough to let us know that things are about to get very bad, very

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ to debut both on HBO Max and in theaters

“Wonder Woman 1984” is heading to HBO Max and movie theaters on the same day. The superhero sequel, from Warner Bros., is still expected to debut in the U.S. on Christmas Day.

Internationally, where HBO Max is not available, “Wonder Woman 1984” will play in theaters. The exact release date overseas is unknown.

Warner Bros. had been incrementally moving the Gal Gadot-led action adventure numerous times in recent months.

But with 50% of U.S. theaters out of operation, including major moviegoing markets like New York and Los Angeles, and many still hesitant to go to the movies, the studio decided it was too risky to open another $200 million-budgeted film on the big screen in the middle of the coronavirus crisis.

With “Wonder Woman 1984” gone from this year’s release calendar, 2020 is officially a wash for movie theater exhibitors. The DC Comics follow-up was the lone potential blockbuster left

La Veneno comes to HBO Max: Trans icon inspired hit TV show

It’s unlikely that the vice president of the United States would stan a trans icon of the 1990s.

The second vice president of Spain, however, did just that.

“Last night I finished watching ‘Veneno,’” Pablo Iglesias, third in line for the presidency, tweeted in Spanish last month, shortly before the series’ conclusion. “It makes you cry, laugh, remember, empathize, but above all, it makes you understand the brutal pain that has been and continues to be inflicted on trans people, simply for being themselves.”

He was not alone: Spain fell in love with the show about trans singer and TV personality Cristina Ortiz Rodríguez — better known as “la Veneno” — when it debuted in March on streaming platform Atresplayer Premium. Since then, the number of Atresplayer subscribers has grown 42%, with “Veneno” 10 times more watched than any other show on the platform.
