With the Ridley Scott-directed film Napoleon, the incredibly brilliant Joaquin Phoenix will make his big-screen debut later this year. Is the vast movie-going directly to streaming, or will it only be available in theaters?
After releasing The Last Duel and House of Gucci back-to-back in 2021, director Ridley Scott has another movie coming out later this year that will reunite him with a familiar face.
Napoleon, a historical action epic that will star—you guessed it—French conqueror Napoleon Bonaparte will be Scott’s first collaboration with Apple Studios.
However, Scott’s movie will be released considerably sooner than Steven Spielberg’s HBO limited series about the renowned Frenchman, which was recently announced. What is known about Ridley Scott’s Napoleon is listed below.
Napoleon Movie Release Date
On November 22, 2023, Thanksgiving weekend, Napoleon will have its premiere. The movie’s debut on this date will be opposite Disney’s animated fairytale Wish.
Having said that, it is still conceivable for the movie to debut at a film festival before it is released, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it appeared at TIFF or the Venice Film Festival in early September.
Where Can You Watch Napoleon?
Napoleon will receive an exclusive wide theatrical release beginning on November 22, 2023, following in the footsteps of another significant Apple Studios movie, Martin Scorsese’s K*llers of the Flower Moon.
For the theatrical release, Apple will work with Sony Pictures Entertainment. Although there isn’t a release date for the movie streaming on Apple TV+, it will be possible to watch it there.
