Marvel’s Eternals is already headed for Disney+. After an underwelming box office performance and harsh critical reviews Marvel’s Eternals is going to Disney+ in a few weeks.
Disney has revealed that the release date for the film on Disney+ will be Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022. Two months and a week from it’s box office debut on November 5, 2021. It’s a bit longer than the 45 days that Disney has said they would give theatrical exclusivity for before going to Disney Plus.
When the film arrives on the streaming service there will be no extra charge to subscribers.
Audiences seemed to like the Chloé Zhao directed film, well the ones that went to the theater, there weren’t a lot, but critics mostly had a different take. Currently the film is sitting at 48% Critical Score and 80% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The fact that there is a pandemic going on and the film being quite long may have played into the totals as well, but other Marvel films and Sony films released in 2021 didn’t seem to take as much of a hit due to those factors.
I guess ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ was an interesting “experiment” for Disney since it performed and ‘Eternals’ did not. Maybe the ‘Eternals’ film would have been a better one to put on Disney+ with Premier Access?
Somehow I think the Disney and Sony film ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ will outperform pretty much all the films released theatrically in 2021, but we shall see.
If you have been waiting for the ‘Eternals’ film you can watch it on January 12, 2022. ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ is available to watch with your Disney+ subscription now.
