Get ready for the new adventure and biopic-touched film, as Sony Pictures’ ‘Gran Turismo’, is set for a wide theatrical release on August 25, 2023. No doubt, ‘Gran Turismo’ holds special significance for its makers, and they are also expecting it to resonate with the audience both in theaters and on streaming platforms. In fact, the audience has also been eagerly anticipating its release. While the theatrical audience is prepared, the question remains: where will the streaming audience be able to watch it?
Will Gran Turismo be on Amzon Prime?
Yes, ‘Gran Turismo’ will be available on Amazon Prime. However, it won’t be accessible through the official streaming service for Prime subscribers. Instead, Sony Pictures ‘Gran Turismo’ will be offered on Amazon Prime for rent and purchase for $5.99 to $19.99. It’s due to the lack of official streaming rights for the film in domestic streaming markets. Therefore, even if you have a premium Prime subscription, you won’t be able to watch it on Amazon Prime after its theatrical release. To watch it on Amazon Prime, you’ll need to either buy or rent the digital version of the film.
In industry terms, Netflix has already established a movie-streaming partnership with Sony. Given this streaming arrangement, it’s highly likely that ‘Gran Turismo’ will eventually become available for streaming on Netflix. So, there is no chance it will be streaming on Amazon Prime in the USA. However, there might be a possibility for it to be streamed on Amazon Prime in other countries.
When discussing the video-on-demand (VOD) version, it will not only be accessible through Amazon Prime but also on platforms like Vudu, iTunes, YouTube, and Redbox. These options are expected to become available within four months of its theatrical release — before the official streaming on Netflix. As a result, there are various avenues to watch the film online.
