With some cinemas still closed due to local restrictions and small audiences willing to go, Disney has announced that the Searchlight Pictures movie “Nomadland” will be coming to Hulu and selected theatres in the United States on February 19th.
Following the economic collapse of a company town in rural Nevada, Fern (Frances McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside of conventional society as a modern-day nomad. The third feature film from director Chloé Zhao, NOMADLAND features real nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells as Fern’s mentors and comrades in her exploration through the vast landscape of the American West.
“Nomadland” is following a similar release to how Warner Brothers are releasing their movies on HBO Max and cinemas at the same time. With new 20th Century Studio movies usually heading to HBO in the US, after they’ve been released in theatres due to an existing deal that will be ending next year, this might be a temporary release on Hulu.
It’s unclear if a similar release will be happen internationally with Disney+.
