Hoping to resume the momentum that led Top Gun: Maverick to be one of the most successful movies of 2022 is Devotion, the new historical war drama from JD Dillard. Hitting theaters exclusively in November 2022, the movie will eventually come to Netflix.
The 2 hour and 18 minute film sees Jonathan Majors playing the role of Jesse Brown and Glen Powell playing Thomas J. Hudner. These are two elite US Navy fighter pilots who served during the Korean War and eventually became the Navy’s most celebrated wingmen.
The film garnered strong reviews ahead of its theatrical release on November 23, with Britany Murphy by DiscussingFilm saying, “Devotion succeeds because it combines powerful performances with stunning imagery, without relying solely on one or the other, something that wouldn’t have been the case if JD Dillard hadn’t been behind the camera.”
Netflix US will stream Devotion in 2023
Let’s start with Netflix India and Netflix in the US. Both regions receive first window rights to all of Sony’s feature films and that will include Devotion.
It’s the same deal that bought you Bullet train, Unexplored, Y where the locusts sing to service throughout 2022.
So when will Netflix Devotion stream?
An exact date is not known, but we can confirm that it will be in 2023.
Sony movies have arrived on Netflix between 120 and 225 days after their initial release.
That means we are currently expecting the movie to hit Netflix sometime between March 23, 2023 and July 6, 2023.
Will Devotion stream on Netflix internationally?
There is no news to report on this and it is currently not expected to hit Netflix right away. That includes Netflix India which, like the US, gets movies from Sony in the first window.
While Sony Pictures distributes the film in the United States, that is not the case internationally. Instead, STX International owns the distribution rights and does not have any major publicly known deals with broadcasters internationally.
So for everyone else, you’ll need to watch the movie in theaters or just cross your fingers that Netflix eventually gets the movie licensed in your region.
