Billy Eichner is challenging the straight-ification of queer stories with Bros, a new romantic comedy opening in theaters this weekend.
Directed by Forgetting Sarah Marshall filmmaker Nicholas Stoller—who also co-wrote the script with Eichner—this meta-comedy finds Eichner playing a screenwriter named Bobby Lieber, a gay man who is hired to write a rom-com about a gay couple. As he struggles with the expectations of straight studio executives, he falls into a love story of his own—with a hunky, macho lawyer named Aaron (played by Luke Macfarlane).
You can expect to laugh, cry, swoon, and cringe at the awkwardness of it all with this one. Here’s what to know about where to watch Bros, and when to expect the Bros movie on streaming.
WHERE TO WATCH THE BILLY EICHNER MOVIE BROS:
For now, the only way to watch Bros is in a movie theater, when the film opens on Friday, September 30. You can find a showing at a theater near you via Fandango.
After the movie’s theatrical run, you’ll be able to purchase Bros on digital platforms like Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, iTunes, and more. You’ll also be able to stream the movie on Peacock—read on to learn more.
WHEN WILL BROS BE STREAMING?
The short answer? We don’t know. There is not yet a Bros digital or streaming release date. But we can make an educated guess. Here’s what we do know:
Bros is a Universal movie, and a previous Universal movie, Beast landed on VOD about three weeks after opening in theaters. If Bros follows a similar pattern, you can expect to be able to see the movie on VOD as soon as late October 2022.
That said, other Universal movies like Nope spent longer in theaters, so we don’t know when exactly Bros will be on VOD. But we can expect Bros to be on Peacock in 2022, because starting with the 2022 film slate, Universal movies are now going to Peacock Premium as soon as 45 days after opening in theaters. (That said, it could be later than 45 days.)
WHEN WILL BROS BE ON PEACOCK?
There is not yet a Peacock streaming release date for Bros. However, we can make an educated guess as to when Bros will be on the streaming service. Another Universal movie, The Northman, began streaming on Peacock Premium after a 45-day theatrical run and was also available on VOD the next day. That said, other Universal films like The Black Phone took closer to 50 days after opening in theaters before it was released on Peacock. Other Universal movies, like Nope, still have not landed on Peacock, even well after 50 days.
It’s not yet clear when Bros will be on Peacock, but our best guess is closer to the 45-day window, around mid-to-late November 2022.
WILL BROS BE ON DISNEY+?
No. Bros is a Universal movie, not a Disney movie, and therefore will never be streaming on Disney+.
WILL BROS BE STREAMING ON HBO MAX?
No. Bros is a Universal movie, not a Warner Bros. release. Also, HBO Max will no longer be streaming theatrical movies in 2022. (Last year, Warner Bros. opted to simultaneously release its theatrical slate on streaming, meaning HBO Max subscribers could watch movies like Matrix Resurrections at home. This year, however, Warner Bros. theatrical movies will have a 45-day theaters-only run before moving to HBO Max.) It’s possible that Bros will be on HBO and HBO Max someday, but it will not be any time soon.
IS BROS STREAMING ON NETFLIX?
Bros will not be on Netflix any time soon. However, the movie may eventually go to Netflix, albeit not for another 4 years. A deal between Universal and Netflix gives the streaming service access to live-action films from Universal Filmed Entertainment Group about four years after they open in theaters. In the case of Bros, that means September 2026. That’s a long time to wait, so if you want to see the movie ASAP, your best bet is to go to a movie theater or wait for it to come on Peacock or digital.
