Movie releases were turned on their heads over the past two years, while theaters were closed and people were staying home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, many movies that came out in 2020 and 2021 were released to streaming services in a way that hadn’t happened before. Now that theaters are back up and running, though, some studios are doing hybrid releases: putting movies in theaters and on streaming platforms at the same time. Not House of Gucci, though. The movie, starring Adam Driver and Lady Gaga, was released exclusively in theaters on Nov. 24. It’s not yet streaming — but it will be soon!
In House of Gucci — which is, of course, about the fashion house’s dynasty — Lady Gaga plays Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci (Driver) who was convicted of ordering Gucci’s 1985 murder. The real Reggiani served 18 years in prison before being released. The film is already generating award-season buzz, so it only makes sense that people are keen to see it.
Lucky for you, according to Variety, House of Gucci is set to be available to own digitally starting on Feb. 22. The digital-release package will include all-new exclusive bonus content, including a featurette called The Lady of the House, which documents Gaga’s transformation into her role, and another called Styling House of Gucci, which walks viewers through the process of creating the wardrobe pieces worn by the Gucci family.
There’s still no word on when the movie will be available to stream on subscription services, but we know that it should be coming to Paramount+ in the not-so-distant future. According to Variety, per a deal with Epix and Paramount Pictures, the studio’s movies will eventually land on the streaming service.
Unfortunately, there’s no time frame right now for when this might happen. Our best guess is House of Gucci will be on Paramount+ around 90 days after the theatrical release. We’ll just have to wait to see what happens, though. In the meantime, you can still catch the movie in many theaters or buy it digitally on demand when it becomes available on Feb. 22.
