Science fiction and horror are two genres that never fail to deliver when brought together in one film. Underwater is a film that is bound to excite science fiction and horror fans in equal measure. The William Eubank directed film features stars such as Kristen Stewart, Jessica Henwick, and T.J. Miller.
Underwater focuses on the crew of a research station situated seven miles below the ocean’s surface. It’s all going well for the crew until mysterious creatures appear and begin to terrorize everyone at the station. The film is set to be released United States on 10th January 2020. This piece will inform you where it will be available for streaming.
Will Underwater come to Netflix?
It is highly unlikely that Underwater will come to Netflix. The reason for this is that the film will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.
20th Century Fox is a subsidiary of Walt Disney Pictures, which owns the streaming service, Disney+. Disney+ is a direct rival of Netflix, and so it’s unlikely that 20th Century Fox will hand streaming rights to a direct competitor.
Where will Underwater be available for streaming?
Underwater will first be available for streaming on HBO. HBO and 20th Century Fox signed an output deal in 2012 that was set to run up to 2022. The deal is still in place, and it means that Underwater will be available for streaming on HBO once its theatrical run ends.
We expect that Underwater will eventually head to Disney+ once the film’s run with HBO ends.
Similar Films on Netflix
Fortunately, Netflix has a wide range of films to satisfy your sci-fi craving.
Men in Black – Men in Black caused quite a stir when it hit theatres in 1997, and it pretty easy to understand why. Will Smith starred as an NYPD officer who found himself in the Men in Black world after an encounter with an extra-terrestrial.
Her – Before Joaquin Felix won multiple awards for his portrayal of Joker, he played the role of a Theodore, a man so lonely that he fell in love with a computer system. The romance between Theodore and Samantha (Scarlett Johansson) is weird, to say the least, but the film is generally a great watch.
District 9 – District 9 is essentially what we believe Area 51 to be, a place where the government hides aliens. Keeping extra-terrestrial beings in one location is hard enough, but Wikus soon discovers that moving them to another location is even harder.
