Gerard Butler’s Greenland gets a year-end PVOD release date

Greenland will be skipping its theatrical release at the domestic markets. It will be available on premium video on demand and will eventually head to HBO and HBO Max. The movie will be available in homes on December 18, 2020, for a price of $19.99 for a 48-hour rental period, reported Deadline.

Greenland release date has been shifted a number of times. The movie was initially planned to hit the theatres on June 12 but was delayed to July 30, 2020. It was moved ahead again to August 14, 2020, due to COVID-19 pandemic. Its domestic release was set for July 24, 2020, but was pushed to September 25, 2020.

However, it went to theatres in a few places including Belgium (July 29), France (August 5), and Scandinavia (August 12). On September 14, the makers delayed the movie indefinitely in the United States. The movie has reportedly opened at No. 1 spot at 24 international markets, bringing more than $45 million against a budget of $35 million. STXfilms Motion Picture Group chairman Adam Fogelson said that Greenland has been a hit everywhere in the world, so it is exciting for them to bring it to an American audience on PVOD.

Major theatres in the USA has been shut down due to tent poles being delayed or opting for PVOD release. HBO reportedly bought the rights of Greenland for around $20 to $30 million. It is expected to have it's streaming and television premiere in 2021.
