Currently, Universal Pictures has set the premiere of “The Fall Guy” to land exclusively in theaters on March 1, 2024, before it bows on streaming. This release date is turning out to be an even better spot for the adventure comedy than previously thought, given how the cinema landscape has changed in recent months, mostly due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.
Originally, the sequel to “Godzilla vs. Kong” and the “A Quiet Place: Day One” were both set to come out in March, as well. As it stands now, the next bout between a giant ape and a radioactive lizard is set for April 12, 2024, while the spinoff movie of “A Quiet Place” is moving to June 28, 2024. That should give “The Fall Guy” a lot more room for success that could lead to longer box office legs.
Eventually, “The Fall Guy” will be available to stream for “free” over on Peacock due to the fact that the film is being distributed by Universal. Since it’s now primed for more box success with less competition in theaters and Gosling’s hot streak after “Barbie,” it may take some time for “The Fall Guy” to appear on other video-on-demand services like Vudu, for example.
