Martin McDonagh has reunited Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson once again for his new dark comedy film “The Banshees of Inisherin,” which has received several nominations for the Academy Awards 2023. The two actors starred in his dark comedy “In Bruges” and now they’re playing two long-time friends who are in the middle of a fallout. 

The film premiered at the 2022 Venice Film Festival, and it took two prizes: Farrell took home the Volpi Cup for Best Actor, while McDonagh won Best Screenplay. Many expect this movie to be a triumphal return for the director to the Oscars, after his nominations for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” 

“The Banshees of Inisherin” is set in the small island town in 1923, during the Irish Civil War and it follows Pádraic (Farrell), who is shocked when his lifelong friend his lifelong pal Colm (Gleeson) unexpectedly decides he doesn’t want to talk to him anymore. He tries to patch things up with the help of his sister Siobhán (Kerry Condon) and Dominic (Barry Keoghan). Check out here where to watch it online. 

Is “The Banshees of Inisherin” available on streaming? 

In the US, the movie opened on Friday, Oct. 21. You can check out the availability on websites such as Fandango or in your local theater. However, if you wish to stream it, you will be able to do so on HBO Max from December 13, when the movie will hit the service. 

Can 'The Banshees of Inisherin' land on Netflix?

It's improbable at the moment. Even HBO Max was an unexpected home for the film, as it is distributed by Searchlight Pictures, which is owned by Disney. So it was expected to land on Hulu, most probably, or Disney+. However, it will now be a part of the HBO MAx catalog, but it could still make it to other services in the future. 

The movie is also coming pretty quickly to streaming, only one month and 22 days after its theater release. Studios have been some what changing their strategies depending on box office results, as well as other factors.
