Viewers in the States can bring Robert Pattinson at Batman into their homes, just over 40 days since The Batman debuted in cinemas.
With $736m in the bank worldwide, and $358m of that coming from US cinemas, Warner Bros must be feeling really rather happy with Matt Reeves’ big screen reboot of the Caped Crusader, The Batman. Starring Robert Pattinson, the movie earned generally very strong reviews, and its three hour running time has proven no barrier to people turning up in droves to see it.
And now, just over a month and a week since the movie landed in cinemas comes the announcement that it’s heading to streaming – at least in the US. Warner Bros has confirmed that it’ll be debuting on the HBO Max platform on Monday 18th April, just shy of 45 days since it opened in cinemas. HBO Max doesn’t exist in the UK of course, and won’t until the end of 2025. But the strong suspicion is that the film will find its way to a home on demand service over here quickly as well. It’d be naïve to suggest once The Batman lands on home services in the States it won’t spread like wildfire around the web, and as such, it’s prudent to offer a legal option around the world. News on that as we hear it.
The film is already confirmed for DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release in the UK, and that’s earmarked for June 13th. You can find more information on that release and order yourself a disc here.
