'Bullet Train' set for release on US Netflix next month

The Brad Pitt blockbuster Bullet Train is set for release on Netflix US next month, following a successful run in theatres over the summer.

The action-comedy film, directed by David Leitch, stars an ensemble cast alongside Pitt, including Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Joey King, Brain Tyree Henry, Sandra Bullock, Andrew Koji and Michael Shannon. 

Bullet Train was a box-office hit, grossing $239.3 million worldwide on a budget of $90 million. Based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kōtarō Isaka, the film follows Pitt’s character, an assassin, who must battle a train full of other killers whilst attempting to retrieve a briefcase. 

Bullet Train appeared on Netflix India in November and will appear on the US version of the streamer on December 3rd 2022. Once on Netflix, Bullet Train should be available for roughly 18 months before moving to another platform, such as Disney or Hulu. 

Other regions might receive Bullet Train later than the US and India due to a deal with Sony. Netflix UK typically receives Sony films two years after their release, meaning the film will appear on the streaming service in 2024.

This rule applies to other regions such as Canada, Greece, Spain, Japan, South Africa, Belgium and Sweden.
