How to Get Your Anthony Bourdain Fix Before the Release of ‘Roadrunner’

Derek Walborn

It’s hard to believe that it has already been three years since award-winning chef and author Anthony Bourdain died by suicide in June of 2018. His trademark down to earth, honest take on the human experience made him a household name, not only for those who enjoyed his culinary expertise, but among the many who appreciated the genuine warmth he exuded as he embraced the cultures and people he would encounter during his adventures around the globe.

Bourdain’s life and journeys had already created a vast fan base before his untimely passing. In the years since his death, an ardent desire to learn more has been created among fans both old and new to learn more about his life away from the camera.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville is hoping to respectfully peel the curtain back on Bourdain’s legacy with “Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain.”

The film premiered last month at the Tribeca Film Festival, garnering rave reviews on its intimate approach to complicated subject matter that Bourdain fans hold near and dear.

Where Can I Watch Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain?

Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain hits theaters exclusively on July 16, 2021.

Can I Stream Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain?

Not just yet. The film’s premiere is happening in the cinema only, although streaming options will surely become available soon.

The film is produced by CNN and HBO Max, making both platforms surefire options once the movie’s theatrical run has come to an end. Because the film is being distributed by Focus Features, a Universal-owned company that is allowed to release movies as premium, on-demand content, it can be assumed that Roadrunner will be available for their usual price of $20 in three weeks or so.

Focus Features’ ability to provide films as on-demand content is subject to box office performance, meaning that Roadrunner may be available as soon as August 3, 2021.
