If you are looking to get your hands on a brand new action thriller movie right at the start of the year, you may be in luck. Starring Gerard Butler, Mike Colter and Yoson An, Plane is coming to theaters this week — and we have you covered on how you can watch it.
After conducting an emergency landing which brings a commercial flight to an island in the Philippines where everyone is held hostage by local militants, the captain enlists the help of a convicted fugitive he was transporting on the flight to get everyone to safety.
So where can you watch Plane? When will it be on streaming? Will it be on HBO Max or Netflix? Here’s everything we know about the movie:
WHERE TO WATCH PLANE:
As of now, the only way to watch Plane is to head out to a movie theater when it releases on Friday, Jan. 13. You can find a local showing on Fandango. Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or purchase on digital platforms like Amazon, Vudu, YouTube or Apple.
WHEN WILL PLANE BE ON STREAMING?
While a digital release date for Plane has not yet been announced, we can make an educated guess based on a previously released Lionsgate movie.
Prey For The Devil, which premiered on Oct. 28 of this year, came to digital platforms on Dec. 13 — about 45 days after it released in theaters. If Plane follows the same trajectory, we could be watching it from the comfort of our living rooms by late February or early March.
WILL PLANE BE ON HBO MAX?
No, Plane will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Warner Bros. movie. Last year, the company released its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.
WILL PLANE BE ON NETFLIX?
While Plane could potentially come to Netflix in the future, there has been no announcement about any plans for it to join the streaming giant following its theatrical run. In the meantime, you’ll just have to head out to a movie theater or wait for it to become available on digital.
