Forget the theaters: you can only watch Moonshot online and at home. Yes, in a move that feels like 2021 in the best way, the new film starring Cole Sprouse (Riverdale) and Lana Condor (To All The Boys films) new film is exclusively available at home, so you don't need to go out.

Moonshot looks like a very promising sci-fi romantic comedy, and its premise doesn't seem too far-fetched either. Sprouse plays Walt, a chill barista who meets a Sophie (Condor), who's having trouble with a really-long distance relationship with her boyfriend who lives on Mars. They almost seem to have sparks, but Walt is worried that she's making a huge mistake by following the wrong man to the red planet.

So, Walt does what anyone would do: he sneaks onto the shuttle to Mars. The two then have to lie about why he's on the shuttle, since he wasn't on the manifest.

In the U.S., Moonshot will skip theaters and drop exclusively on HBO Max. It will debut on Thursday (March 31) at 3 a.m. ET. 

This is reminiscent of how HBO Max shared theatrical exclusives in 2021.

HBO Max is one of the new kids on the streaming block but it's already got a ton to offer, including all of HBO's prestige series, like Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and The Wire. Plus, the service has its own originals like Hacks and The Flight Attendant. HBO Max starts at $9.99 per month.

We've got some bad news — and it's tantamount to a failure to launch. HBO Max isn't in the United Kingdom yet, and it doesn't look like anyone else will be carrying Moonshot in the U.K..

Americans traveling abroad may want to use best VPN services, such as Express VPN, to access HBO Max remotely.

Folks in Australia will be able to watch Moonshot, even without HBO Max. That's because the movie is set to debut on Binge. We hope it takes off on Thursday, March 31 (the same day as its US release), but that's not been confirmed yet.
