Gran Turismo will release on streaming and digital after its theatrical debut, and here is what is known about when and where it will be found.
- Sony’s video game movie, Gran Turismo, will likely release on streaming in December 2023, most likely on Netflix.
- Typically, Sony waits between four to six months from a movie’s theatrical release date to make it available on Netflix.
- Gran Turismo will likely release on digital platforms in October 2023 before its streaming release.
Sony’s video game movie debuts in theaters first, but here is when Gran Turismo will release on streaming. Based on the popular racing simulator game of the same name, Gran Turismo is directed by Neill Blomkamp and tells the true story of Jann Mardenborough. The aspiring race car driver played by Archie Madekwe has his life changed when he enters the GT Academy, a program designed to turn the best Gran Turismo players into professional drivers. The video game movie includes visceral racing scenes and supporting performances from David Harbour and Orlando Bloom as Sony eyes a potential franchise.
As much as a theatrical release still matters, streaming releases have become another key part of Hollywood’s strategy in recent years. Sony is in a unique situation compared to most of the other major studios, as it does not have a streaming service of its own to release its movies on. Gran Turismo‘s theatrical release will still be followed by it being made available for people to watch at home at a later date. This raises questions about when Gran Turismo‘s streaming release date will be and where it will stream. Here is what is known about the secondary rollout plan.
Gran Turismo Will Likely Release On Streaming In December 2023
Sony has not officially confirmed when Gran Turismo will release on streaming. However, it is most likely that audiences will be able to watch the movie on a streaming service in December 2023. This is the potential timing for when Gran Turismo will release on Netflix. Since Sony does not have a streaming service, it struck a deal with Netflix in late 2021 to make the popular streamer the first home for all future movies. The studio does not have a set timeframe for when the movies go to Netflix, but a pattern suggests Gran Turismo‘s streaming release there will likely occur in December 2023.
The timing for Gran Turismo’s release date on Netflix is expected to be on the shorter end of Sony’s habits. The studio typically waits between four and six months from a movie’s theatrical release date to make it available on Netflix. Sony’s last video game movie Uncharted took the full six months to make it to Netflix, but Tom Holland’s adventure movie was a big hit at the box office. It remains to be seen if Gran Turismo‘s box office will similarly perform well. If it does not, a four-month gap would put Neill Blomkamp’s movie on Netflix in December 2023.
Gran Turismo Will Likely Release On Digital In October 2023
Those wanting to watch Gran Turismo at home before it goes to streaming will get the chance thanks to its Digital release. Sony has not officially announced when Gran Turismo will release on Digital and PVOD. The studio has typically allowed their 2023 movies to play in theaters for six weeks exclusively before giving audiences an at-home viewing option. This would put Gran Turismo‘s Digital release date in October 2023.
