Now that Bombshell has been playing in theaters for some time, are you wondering where you can stream it at home?
The movie Bombshell, starring Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, and Margot Robbie, premiered in theaters Dec. 13. It was highly anticipated since the cast was announced, and Twitter just about blew up when the first photos and teasers for the movie surfaced. Everything pointed to the hype, but when Bombshell finally made its debut, not much was heard or said about it.
At Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has a decent 67% fresh score from critics and an 84% from audiences. That’s not bad, but nothing to brag about, especially when not many people have watched the movie.
The reported budget for Bombshell is supposedly $33 million. And yet, the movie has only gathered $16.1 million worldwide at the box office. That’s only almost half of its money back. Almost. Fine reviews, a stellar cast, why has it, well, bombed?
You can blame marketing, the season of too many movies, or no interest in the film’s topic, the bottom line is that Bombshell failed to attract much of an audience. Have you seen it? If not, you are likely waiting to stream the movie from home. You don’t have anything to lose this way and it’s a lot more comfortable. So, if that’s the case, here’s when and where you can stream the movie after it leaves theaters.
Bombshell is distributed by Lionsgate, which has also handled the John Wick film series, Longshot, A Simple Favor and others. All of which have ended up on HBO after their big-screen run is up. If you have HBO Now (or the new service debuting later this year), you should be good and will be able to watch Bombshell in 6-8 months from its release date.
Bombshell is still playing in theaters.
