While the plate already seems full with the regional films lining up for a festival release next year, Hollywood production houses have placed their bets on theatrical releases for the coming months, in India. So far, India has missed the releases of some big-budget Hollywood movies like Black Widow and has had to depend on OTT platforms, but the trend is expected to change in the upcoming months. As soon as the State Governments permitted the theatres to open, Warner Bros and Universal Pictures revealed their lineup for the theatres in India.
Here are Warner Bros theatrical release dates:
