When Will ‘The Green Knight’ Be on Streaming? How to Watch Online


Great news for cinephiles who don’t yet feel comfortable going to the movie theater in person: The Green Knight is coming to traditional video-on-demand much sooner than anyone expected. That’s right, in no time at all, you’ll be able to watch this gorgeous, ethereal film from your living room.

The hype for The Green Knight has been building for well over a year, but for those out of the loop, the film is an adaptation of the 14th-century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, which tells the story of King Arthur’s nephew, Gawain. Written and directed by filmmaker David Lowery, The Green Knight stars Dev Patel as Gawain, a headstrong young man who foolishly enters into a challenge with the mysterious Green Knight. As a result, he embarks on an epic, fantastical journey across the land.

Fair warning: The Green Knight is far from your average medieval movie. Instead of clanging swords and rousing speeches, there are dreary, eerie, sometimes confusing sequences of suffering, fear, and pain. You’ll want to check it out for yourselves, and thanks to A24, that’s now easier than ever. Read on to find out how to stream The Green Knight online.


The Green Knight will be available to rent on premium video-on-demand on traditional digital platforms beginning on Thursday, August 19.

If you want to catch the film a day earlier, A24 is also hosting a special virtual screening of The Green Knight on Wednesday, August 18th at 9 p.m. ET.


Beginning on August 19, you will be able to rent the film for $20 on Amazon Prime, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Vudu, and other platforms where you rent digital content. You will have 48 hours to view the film after hitting play.

You can also watch The Green Knight in the A24 screening room if you buy tickets to the one-night-only virtual screening of the film on Wednesday, August 18 at 9 p.m. ET.

Now hurry up, little knight! Off with your head!
