Sony Pictures Movies Coming Soon To Netflix Jpg

Pictures from Sony Pictures

From 2022 onwards, Netflix (in the United States) has been getting brand new animated and live-action Sony movies, which will continue into 2023. Here’s a roundup of all the new Sony movies that have hit Netflix and what’s coming up alongside Netflix’s predicted release dates.

For those unaware, Netflix and Sony signed a landmark deal in April 2021 to bring Sony’s feature films to the service in the coveted pay-1 window. This means any Sony theatrical releases come to Netflix around 6 months after they debut in theaters.

In the original press release, Netflix promised that future entries Venom, Spiderman, Jumanji, and Bad Boys are all headed to the service.

The deal goes beyond just carrying theatrical releases, however. In early 2022, two direct-to-video movies from Sony landed on Netflix. We’re also continuing to see Netflix buy the global rights to Sony movies or Sony movies being produced exclusively for Netflix.

How long until Sony movies come to Netflix?

The theatrical window for Sony movies isn’t a fixed time window at least in the US. While Netflix India receives new Sony movies exactly 120 days after their theatrical release, the US has to wait anywhere between 120 and 168 days so far.
