Cinema Royale: Talking NOMADLAND, THE PROM, And Warner Bros.’ HBO Max Bombshell

This week on Cinema Royale we talk about a likely awards winner in Frances McDormand’s new NOMADLAND, then it’s on to something more colorful in Ryan Murphy’s THE PROM. That’s not the big news though, the bombshell that Warner Bros is moving their entire 2021 slate to HBOMax for simultaneous VOD and Theatrical premier, that’s the big news, and Travis and John jump deep into what this means for the future of theatrical films!

All of this after we finish rambling for through the first segment. Why can’t we get to everything we want to talk about? Can’t figure that shit out. We barely got to THE MANDALORIAN this week!

All this and more! Follow the Punch Drunk Critics and Cinema Royale!
