bodies bodies bodies is one of the big theatrical releases of summer 2022, and if you don’t plan on venturing out, when will you be able to watch Pete Davidson’s new movie on streaming? More importantly, will it be on Netflix? Let’s find out.
From director Halina Reijn, the new film is described as a dark comedy that features the talents of Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Myha’la Herrold, Chase Sui Wonders, Rachel Sennott, Lee Pace and Pete Davidson.
Certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes, the film is about a group of wealthy 20-year-olds planning a hurricane party at a remote family mansion, but a party game goes awry.
The film is distributed by A24 in the United States, although it is co-produced by Stage 6 Films (a subsidiary of Sony Pictures with which Netflix has a production deal, but only in the US).
Because bodies bodies bodies will not be on Netflix in the US
While Netflix used to get A24 movies (new and old titles from its library), that’s no longer the case and hasn’t been around for a while.
Instead, Showtime currently holds the first-window exit agreement with A24 and is expected to continue through November 2022. As a result, bodies bodies bodies should eventually be directed to Showtime. Of course, the A24 also works with Apple TV+ on select titles that are outside of the Showtime deal.
Go bodies bodies bodies be on Netflix outside the US?
The answer to that is almost certainly yes. Outside the United States, the film is being distributed by Sony.
This means that Netflix India will receive the film in late 2022 or early 2023 as part of its first-window deal.
Netflix Canada and the UK get Sony movies 2 years after their theatrical release, meaning the movie should arrive sometime in 2024. This also applies to regions like Belgium, Greece, Japan, Poland, Spain , Sweden and South Africa.
Beyond these regions, it’s best to look for alternative methods of watching the movie.
While Netflix does not currently receive A24 movies, they are working on a number of new A24 shows. Upcoming titles include Meat and survival of the thickest.
