Where to Watch Smile Movie 2022: Streaming, After Theatrical?
No doubt, after the theatrical release, Paramount Pictures’ horror thriller ‘Smile’ will be officially streaming on Paramount+ in the USA, and according to reports, it will be on Paramount+ within one month of its theatrical release, which is news for horror film lovers. Apart from official streaming, ‘Smile’ will also be available to rent on Amazon Prime, Vudu, Youtube, Apple TV, and Google Play Movies at $3.99-4.99.
According to reports, Paramount Pictures considered ‘Smile’ as a streaming film from the beginning, and streaming was also fixed. But later, as a result of the good box office response to the recently released small horror films and the favorable pre-reviews, the production decided to release ‘Smile’ theatrically instead of streaming, and all this happened in a short time.
This isn’t the first time productions such as Disney and Sony have done this with ‘Barbarian’ and ‘The Invitation’, and they did well at the box office. Paramount also expects good box office from ‘Smile’.
