It wouldn’t be Christmas without a new Tom Hanks movie, right? Well, you’re in luck—sort of.
Tom Hanks’s new movie, News of the World, is coming out Christmas Day, but for those of us who are avoiding movie theaters because, uh, we don’t want to die, News of the World may not be so easy to watch. However, those living outside of the U.S. have a few more options to watch News of the World on streaming. Read on to find out everything there is to know about the News of the World release date, and how and when to watch News of the World on streaming.
WHAT IS NEWS OF THE WORLD ABOUT?
Based on the 2016 novel by Paulette Jiles, News of the World stars Hanks as an American Civil War veteran named Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd who is tasked with “rescuing” a young white girl named Johanna (Helena Zengel), who was captured as an infant by the Kiowa people. The only problem? Johanna wants to stay with her captors.
WHAT IS THE NEWS OF THE WORLD RELEASE DATE?
The News of the World release date is December 25, 2020, aka Christmas Day. It will release in theaters in the U.S. and will release internationally on Netflix, except for in the U.S. and China.
WILL THE NEWS OF THE WORLD BE ON STREAMING?
Yes, but only if you live outside of the U.S. or China. Internationally, News of the World will be streaming on Netflix beginning December 25. If you live in the U.S. or China, you’ll have to wait for News of the World to come out on digital on-demand. However, because News of the World is a Universal film, the wait shouldn’t be that long, thanks to the deal between the studio and AMC Theaters that allows films to come out on VOD and other digital platforms after a 17-day theatrical window. While the digital release hasn’t yet been confirmed, we can guess that it will be around January 11, which is 17 days after December 25.
WHERE TO WATCH NEWS OF THE WORLD:
If you live in the U.S. or China, your only option to see News of the World this week is at a movie theater. But, as stated above, you shouldn’t have to wait long for News of the World to come to VOD. In the meantime, there are plenty of movies coming out on Christmas that you’ll be able to stream at home. Have a healthy and happy holiday!
