Lionsgate’s ‘The Marsh King’s Daughter’ is all set to begin its theatrical journey on November 3, 2023, in the USA. As an official thriller in Lionsgate’s film library, both the makers and the audience have high expectations for it. However, it is believed that the film will attract more streaming viewers than theatergoers. While there is very little information available on streaming platforms, some details have come to light, which may not be particularly special for Netflix users.
Directed by Neil Burger and written by Elle Smith and Mark L. Smith, the psychological thriller stars Daisy Ridley, Ben Mendelsohn, Garrett Hedlund, and Caren Pistorius. Produced by Teddy Schwarzman, Keith Redmon, and Mark L. Smith under the production banners of STXfilms, Black Bear Pictures, and Anonymous Content and is set to be distributed by Lionsgate Roadside Attractions.
Is The Marsh King’s Daughter Streaming on Netflix?
No, Lionsgate’s ‘The Marsh King’s Daughter’ will not be streaming on Netflix after its theatrical release due to a lack of streaming and production rights. For now, the only faster option to watch ‘The Marsh King’s Daughter’ is in your nearby theaters after this Friday, as it’s highly likely that it will not be available for online streaming on any platform soon. Despite being one of the major streaming platforms, there is no streaming deal in existence between Netflix and Lionsgate related to any film production, which also ensures that Netflix does not have the rights to make ‘The Marsh King’s Daughter’ available on their platform for users.
It is not immersive for Netflix users, and perhaps Netflix users will have to find other options to stream it online. Not just Netflix, but it won’t be streaming on other major platforms like Disney+, HBO Max, and Hulu either due to the lack of streaming rights. While there have been reports suggesting that Peacock might become an official streaming partner for Lionsgate, there is no official confirmation of this yet. As of now, the only way to watch the film online is through the VOD versions on Amazon Prime, Vudu, Redbox, and Microsoft stores. These options are to be available 45 days after the theatrical release, but they come at a relatively high price, ranging from $19.99 to $24.99.
In our opinion, choosing to watch the film in theaters instead of the digital version would be a better and more economical option for experiencing this thrilling movie, but the ultimate choice will always be in the hands of the audience.
