Gareth Edwards’ The Creator is landing on Disney+ in the middle of January, it’s now been confirmed: more here.

Gareth Edward’s The Creator may not have won universal praise, but those who loved it, really, really loved it. Our own Ryan Lambie included. The film didn’t set the box office alight, sadly, although a $104m return isn’t going to cause Disney too many headaches. Sadly though, it was the kind of money that looks like it influenced the decision to sell on Jeff Nichols’ The Bikeriders. Sigh.

Anyway, The Creator.

We’ve already covered the fact that Disney is giving the movie a full physical media outing, and that’s going to be heading our way in the UK on January 15th 2024. You can find more details on the release here.

We’ve also now got the official confirmation of when it’s going to hit streaming, specifically the Disney+ service. And, in the UK, it’s going to be two days after that physical media debut, on Wednesday January 17th.

Of course, if you want the extra features (there’s a 55 minute making-of on the disc release) and reliably high quality of playback, the physical media option is going to be best, not least for a film that looks so expensive. But  still: I can’t imagine the Disney+ version of the film is going to look on the shabby side.

Furthermore, this is a chance for those who did miss The Creator on the big screen to catch up with the picture. Our top advice here is don’t watch it on a phone or a laptop. At least give the film, if you can, the attention of your television.

We’ll leave you with the synopsis…

Amid a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence, Joshua, a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife, is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war-and mankind itself.
