Lionsgate’s new action thriller, ‘Retribution’, is on the way to its theatrical release, and the film officially releases in domestic theaters on August 25, 2023. Given Lionsgate’s and Liam Neeson’s history of successful action films, critics and audiences have high expectations for ‘Retribution’, and they are eagerly anticipating its final release, whether it’s in theaters or available for streaming. So, let’s explore what’s there for Netflix.
Directed by Nimród Antal and written by Chris Salmanpour, ‘Retribution’— the official remake of the Spanish film “El desconocido”— stars Liam Neeson, Noma Dumezweni, Lilly Aspell, Jack Champion, and Embeth Davidtz. Produced by Andrew Rona, Alex Heineman, Jaume Collet-Serra, and Juan Sola under the production banners of The Picture Company, Ombra Films, Vaca Films, TF1 Films Production, and Studio Babelsberg and is set to be distributed by Lionsgate.
Will Retribution Movie be on Netflix?
No, it won’t be on Netflix. Liam Neeson’s ‘Retribution’ will not be available for streaming on Netflix in the USA due to a lack of streaming and production rights. As an official Lionsgate production, the streaming giant does not have the rights to stream it on their platform following its theatrical release because there is no existing streaming deal between Lionsgate and Netflix regarding ‘Retribution’. Currently not, but there is a possibility that Netflix might express interest in acquiring the streaming rights for the film in the future if the film gains significant value and buzz among the audience. Netflix has previously demonstrated interest in numerous films.
Liam Neeson’s ‘Retribution’ is an official remake of the Spanish-French film “El desconocido”, which was well-received by audiences and critics. Due to the overwhelming response to the original, the makers are intentionally expecting positive results for ‘Retribution’ and are also substantial interest from streaming platforms. However, only time will tell how well it will fare for the makers and how much they will generate from the streaming rights.
