The Desperate Hour is one of the big theatrical releases from the weekend. Will it head to Prime Video when it’s time to stream online?
When it comes to theatrical releases, we have the choice of going to the theaters or waiting for the movies to stream online. After all, the majority of theatrical releases now head to a streaming platform somewhere.
The question is where. Usually, we can look at the movies’ production companies to get an idea. There are usually deals between the streaming platforms and production studios.
That’s not the case with all though. The deals are made on an ad hoc basis, and that’s looking like the case for The Desperate Hour.
Will The Desperate Hour stream on Prime Video?
It’s hard to say where this movie is going to stream. It’s a Roadside Attractions movie, and those movies have headed to a variety of streaming platforms over the years.
Some of the movies have been co-produced by Lionsgate, usually leading to them going to Prime Video, like The Courier. That’s not the case with The Desperate Hour, though.
We’ll keep an eye on the release plans for this movie. There is a chance we’ll see it arrive on Prime Video, and we’ll be sure to let you know if that is the case.
Watch The Desperate Hour on Amazon Video
One thing we do know is that the movie will head to Amazon Video at some point. It’s going to get a Digital release, especially as it being a theatrical movie.
In fact, there is some excellent news. It’s already on Digital! Roadside Attractions chose to release the movie in theaters and on Digital at the same time. This is likely linked to the pandemic, but it could also be linked to some of the negative reviews the movie has gained.
The Desperate Hour is currently in theaters and on Digital.
