Warner Bros’ parent company Warner Media made waves this month when it was announced that the studio’s entire 2021 slate will be released day-and-date in theaters and on HBO Max, domestically.

With today’s announcement of 2023 theatrical films, made by Warner Bros picture group chairman Toby Emmerich, the studio notes the films are all set for a worldwide theatrical release.
