Bullet Train, Brad Pitt’s summer blockbuster, will arrive on Netflix US in December 2022, after first appearing on Netflix India in November 2022. Here’s when Bullet Train will be available on Netflix in the United States, India, and other countries. The action-comedy, based on a Japanese novel, stars a large ensemble cast and follows a man tasked with retrieving a briefcase. Isn’t it simple? No, it does not. He’s on a train with assassins and other bad guys. Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, and Andrew Koji co-star with Pitt in the film.
On August 5th, 2022, the film was released in theatres to generally positive reviews from critics. According to BoxOfficeMojo, the film made over $200 million worldwide. The best way to see Bullet Train right now is on a big screen, but thanks to a Sony first window deal, you’ll be able to see the movie in two regions in 2022 during its theatrical run-up.
When will Netflix release Bullet Train?
New Sony films have been arriving on Netflix India and Netflix US throughout 2022, while many films arrive at various times after their theatrical premiere. According to our analysis, Sony movies released in theatres before 2022 moved to Starz between 120 and 223 days after they were released, and this year, Netflix followed suit. While Where The Crawdads Sing debuted in the prior 120-day window, the partnership brought films like Uncharted to Netflix after 168 days in cinemas. The movie was made available on Netflix India on November 5th, 2022, and we’re delighted to say that Netflix US will be getting Bullet Train on December 3rd.
It will subsequently be accessible on Netflix in these areas for a total of 18 months before transferring to Disney, and in this case, it will probably go to Hulu. This will happen about in the summer of 2024. While neither Netflix nor Sony actively promote such deals, new Sony movies are swiftly added to Netflix in many different locations. Netflix India regularly receives fresh Sony releases 120 days following their debut, therefore the movie will be available on December 3, 2022.
Two years after their theatrical premiere, Sony movies are available on Netflix Canada and the UK. As an illustration, Fantasy Island, which debuted in February 2020, only recently made an appearance on Netflix in the US and the UK in January 2022. Additionally, that holds true for nations like Belgium, Greece, Japan, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and South Africa. That would imply that at some point in 2024, Netflix in these areas would add Bullet Train.
