A doctor, a nurse and a lawyer enter an Amsterdam train station. This isn’t the setup for a joke, this is the premise of the new Christian Bale movie, Amsterdamwhich opens in cinemas this weekend.
Loosely based on the true story of a 1933 plot to overthrow US President Franklin D. Roosevelt and install a dictator, Amsterdam stars Christian Bale, Margot Robbie and John David Washington as the three prime suspects in a murder of a US senator in the 1930s. But the star power doesn’t stop there – it Amsterdam The cast also includes Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoe Saldaña, Mike Myers, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Taylor Swift, Rami Malek and Robert De Niro.
Working against the film is the reputation of its writer/director David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle), who has made numerous allegations of abusive behavior and sexual assault over the years. If you’re curious about the film but would rather not support Russell at the box office, the good news is that you probably won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on it Amsterdam on streaming. Read on to find out where you can watch Amsterdam and when you can expect it Amsterdam to release on digital and streaming.
WHERE TO WATCH THE CHRISTIAN BALE MOVIE AMSTERDAM:
For now, the only way is to see Amsterdam is to see it in a cinema, when it opens on Friday the 7th. October. You can find a screening near you via Fandango.
After the film’s theatrical release, you will be able to purchase Amsterdam on digital platforms such as Amazon Prime, iTunes, Vudu and more. You will probably also be able to stream Amsterdam on HBO Max and Hulu. Read on to learn more.
WHEN WILL AMSTERDAM BE STREAMING?
There is not yet an official release date for digital streaming Amsterdam. But here’s what you know.
Amsterdam is a 20th century film, and an earlier 20th century release, The movie Bob’s Burgers, became available for streaming on HBO Max and Hulu, as well as available for purchase on digital platforms such as Amazon for $19.99, after 45 days in theaters. If Amsterdam follows a similar release strategy, you might be able to stream the film at home as early as late November 2022.
That said, because this is such a star-studded blockbuster, it’s possible that 20th Century will keep it Amsterdam exclusive to theaters for more than 45 days. For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
WANT AMSTERDAM BE ON DISNEY PLUS, HBO MAX OR HULU?
Yes, but you have to wait. Amsterdam will likely go to HBO Max during the film’s “Pay 1 window,” which is the time period in which premium cable channels have exclusive rights to air the film. This is because, although Disney now owns 20th Century Studios, Disney is bound by a 10-year deal between 20th Century Fox and HBO that was signed in 2012. That deal runs until 2022 – although HBO/HBO Max agreed to share the exclusive agreement. rights with Disney+, meaning it’s possible Amsterdam will be released on both HBO Max and Disney+ simultaneously, possibly around the end of November 2022.
But it is likely that you will see Amsterdam on Hulu instead of Disney+ because that’s where an earlier film release from the 20th century, Bob’s Burgers, ended up. Hulu is also owned by Disney, and it would be a more appropriate home for the R-rated mystery film than Disney’s family-friendly streamer.
WANT AMSTERDAM BE ON NETFLIX?
No. Amsterdam will not stream on Netflix, due to the fact that it will eventually stream on HBO Max and likely Hulu. Pardon!
