Matt Reed: the voice of simple reason again. 

I agree with what David Miller said above, too: HBOMax is fifteen bucks a month. Cheaper than taking a date to see one movie in the theater, and you get all those other movies for a month! Then cancel the service. Just that easy.

And yet: inertia.

Only in the U.S.
can you watch
the upcoming
Wonder Woman movie.
For the rest of
the world, there's
no reason at all
to get HBOMAX.

Warner's is essentially
releasing the movie
in only one country.

No.  Not really.  It's opening in every theatre in China. You know, the largest theatrical market in the world. It's also opening worldwide in any theatre that will be open at the time of its release. 

Let's not get hyperbolic.

I was referring to
it being released
only on HBOMAX in
America.
Does anyone really
consider the theatres
to be viable right now
with the virus raging
out of control again?

Once it is released, it there anything stopping me from signing up for the 7-day free trial of HBO Max, then cancelling as soon as I have seen the movie?

As mentioned earlier in the thread, no, there's nothing stopping you
from doing that.

What's the price for these things in the US? The price of five cups of coffee at Starbucks? When I go back to Canada, I plan on subscribing to everything.

<<You can watch the movie free. Easy. Sign up for the
free 7-day trial and then drop HBO MAX. Not hard. >>

Quite literally giving the movie away. For free.

This has to be one of the bravest, or stupidest, business
decisions I have ever seen. Surely at the very least, I
would expect HBO Max to abandon free trials altogether
like Disney+ and Netflix.

From one of my favorite YouTube movie guys, Dan Murrell (intelligent, well-spoken, and not prone to the usual bombastic or moronic insanity you tend to see from others):

Is Gal Gadot still under contract with WB for any additional WW obligations?
Could part of this strategy be that any DCEU plans forward anticipate she
won't have a role and they're looking at diminishing returns?

Just spitballing.

It might speak to box office's relative importance to a multi-platform franchise like WW. A $200 million advertisement for toys, t-shirts, theme park rides and now a streaming service isn't doing any good on the shelf. WB probably figures the marketing value of getting it in front of consumer eyeballs now outweighs their share of an $10 average ticket sometime next year or so.
