The critically acclaimed historical drama film The Zone of Interest is still available to watch in some select theaters in the United States as of Jan. 5. But you might want to get your tickets soon because it may not be in theaters for much longer.
For the people who are not able to watch it because it's no longer showing in your location, you'll have to wait for its digital release. Sadly, there isn't an official date for when the movie will be available for rent or purchase digitally, but it's expected to happen sometime in early 2024. The film will most likely be available to rent or buy on digital platforms such as Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, etc.
Where will it be available to stream? Well, it won't be on Netflix. In December 2023, A24 (which is the movie's distributor) inked a multiyear pay-1 U.S. output deal with Warner Bros. Discovery where it will bring its entire theatrical slate to HBO, Max, and Cinemax after their theatrical runs. And guess what? The Zone of Interest is covered in the deal meaning it will eventually make its way to Max. There isn't an official Max release date yet, but we'll make sure to share it once it's revealed.
More about The Zone of Interest
The Zone of Interest was written and directed by Jonathan Glazer and based on the book of the same name by Martin Amis.
