20th Century Studios’ latest horror film, “Barbarian”, is hitting cinemas this Halloween season, but if you’re waiting to watch the film from home, here are the details you need.

In “Barbarian”, a young woman travelling to Detroit for a job interview books a rental home. But when she arrives late at night, she discovers that the house is double booked, and a strange man is already staying there. Against her better judgement, she decides to spend the evening, but soon discovers that there’s a lot more to fear than just an unexpected house guest.

From 20th Century Studios and New Regency, Barbarian stars Georgina Campbell, Bill Skarsgård, Justin Long, Matthew Patrick Davis, Richard Brake, Jaymes Butler and Kurt Braunohler. The film was written and directed by Zach Cregger. The producers are Arnon Milchan, Roy Lee, Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz.Yariv Milchan, Michael Schaefer, Natalie Lehmann, Danny Chan, Alex Lebovici and Bill Skarsgård are the film’s executive producers.

When Is “Barbarian” Released?

In the United States and Canada, the film was released exclusively in cinemas on September 9th 2022. The film is being released in other countries on different dates. It will be released on October 28th, 2022, in the United Kingdom, on October 20th, 2022, in Australia, and on October 27th, 2022, in New Zealand.

When Will “Barbarian” Be On Disney+?

This will very much differ, depending on where you live, and with the film having different theatrical release dates in different countries, it’s much more complicated.

In the United States, due to a long-standing contract that 20th Century Fox signed with HBO years ago, which expires this year, the film will be going to HBO Max first, and because of the film’s R rating, it’s likely that the movie wouldn’t be added to Disney+ and will, instead, go to Hulu.

Internationally,” Barbarian” will follow a similar release pattern as other 20th Century Studio films in 2022, with new films being released about 45 days after its theatrical release date.

Disney has already confirmed that “Barbarian” will be released in Canada on Disney+ on Wednesday, 26th October 2022. Which is just 47 days after its theatrical release date.

No official date has yet been confirmed for Australia, New Zealand or the UK, since the film hasn’t even been released in cinemas yet. But should it follow the 45-day pattern, we should expect to see the film available to stream around the middle of December 2022. O


Is “Barbarian” Coming To Disney+ Premier Access?

Disney has confirmed that following the release of “Jungle Cruise”, it won’t be using Disney+ Premier Access, instead offering selected movies exclusively in cinemas first, before being released on Disney’s streaming services.
