Where (and When) Can You Stream the Most Anticipated Movies of 2023?
The new year is upon us at last, and there are some fantastic new releases coming to theaters in 2023. From comic book adventures like “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3” to historical dramas like “Oppenheimer,” there’ll be something for everyone at the movies this year.
Sadly for movie fans that prefer to watch the latest releases from the comfort of their couches, the era of day-and-date movie releases on streaming platforms is mostly over. The good news, however, is that media companies know there’s a huge section of fans that prefer to stream movies from home. Most often, movie studios will keep films in theaters for windows of around 45, 70, or 120 days, depending on how well they perform at the box office.
Without further ado, check out The Streamable’s list of most anticipated movies of 2023, which streaming service they’ll be headed to, and when we think you’ll be able to enjoy them from the comfort of your own home! Please note, the theatrical release dates listed are official dates given by studios, but many of these films will offer preview screenings a day or two in advance.
As the home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, plus Lucasfilm content, Disney+ will get some of the biggest movies of the year…eventually.
