This summer, Searchlight Pictures is once again teaming with Emma Stone and Yorgos Lanthimos, who previously worked together on the Oscar-winning movie, “Poor Things”, on a new movie called “Kinds Of Kindness”.

The film is a triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.

It stars Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Hong Chau, Joe Alwyn, Mamoudou Athie, and Hunter Schafer.

When Is “Kinds Of Kindness” Released?

“Kinds Of Kindness” is being released exclusively in theaters in the United States on 21st June 2024. It will be released in cinemas a week later in the United Kingdom.

When Will “Kinds Of Kindness” Be On Disney+?

Currently, no official Hulu or Disney+ release date has yet been announced. Since this movie is rated R, expect it to be released on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ in the United States after its theatrical run, while internationally, it’ll be made available on Disney+.

With Disney trying to increase its box office revenues after a few disappointing years, its current strategy for theatrical releases is generally to try to leave them exclusively in cinemas much longer than many other studios like Universal, to make more money and also retrain audiences not to expect the latest releases on Disney+ within weeks of release, like it was during the pandemic.

But Disney doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all release pattern for how quickly a movie is released on digital platforms to purchase or on streaming services like Hulu and Disney+. For big, expensive blockbusters, they’ve been delaying most Disney+ releases to between three and five months after a theatrical release.

However, because Searchlight Pictures releases generally have a much lower budget, they are released on digital platforms and streaming services much quicker, sometimes just two months after a theatrical release, though this can vary between countries.

Here’s how long some of the recent Searchlight Pictures movies have taken to arrive on Hulu/Disney+ in the US:

  • Poor Things (89 Days)
  • All Of Us Strangers (62 Days)
  • Next Goal Wins (90 Days)
  • Theater Camp (62 Days)

Based on the previous Searchlight Pictures releases, I’d guess that “Kinds Of Kindness” won’t arrive on Hulu and Disney+ until late September 2024. However, if Disney decides to rush its release if it’s underperforming at the box office, it could be a few weeks earlier.

What Time Will “Kinds Of Kindness” Be Released On Disney+

Disney+ updates daily at the following times:

  • Pacific Time: 00:00 AM / Midnight
  • Eastern Time: 03:00 AM
  • UK: 08:00 AM
  • Sydney, Australia – 19:00 PM

Sometimes, films can arrive a few minutes later as the servers update. The Disney+ front page usually updates about an hour later.
