Gerard Butler’s new movie “Greenland” will reportedly not be released in theaters across America.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the disaster-thriller about a global disaster and the rush to safety in Greenland will be released on-demand for streaming starting December 18th for $19.99. (REVIEW: ‘Westworld’ Season 3 Ends With The Possible Deaths Of Multiple Characters)

For those of you who haven’t seen the trailer for the highly-anticipated film yet, you can see it below.

I really hope this movie does well on streaming service when it’s available to be rented. Why? It’s really simple.

As far as I can tell, “Greenland” is arguably the biggest movie to skip straight to streaming during the coronavirus pandemic. It’s a large scale disaster film with an A-list Hollywood star leading the way.

If it bombs on streaming, then studios might not want to risk putting other big budget films straight on-demand instead of in theaters.

However, if it blows up and does well, then it might push studios to keep cranking out films to streaming.

Obviously, the latter option is the better one. So, let’s all hope this film does well, and it looks great! I like our chances.
