"The Iron Claw" may have been snubbed in terms of major award nominations so far this season, but it's been a big commercial and critical success for A24, grossing over $29 million after its November 8 debut and going on to amass several glowing reviews from critics.
This biographical sports drama is a tragic true story that follows the life of professional wrestler Kevin Von Erich (Zac Efron) and the Von Erich family throughout their rise to fame in the '80s. Starring "The Bear" star Jeremy Allen White and Harris Dickinson as Kevin's younger brothers, this raw portrait of a family grappling with the "Von Erich curse" that continually brings tragedy to the family's doorsteps is a harrowing story to sit through.
The movie has only been available to see in theaters — meaning if you can't carve out a few hours to take in a showtime, you likely have no idea what you're missing out on. But that may be changing, as "The Iron Claw" is now arriving on paid video-on-demand (PVOD) services starting February 13.
Despite this announcement though, there's no concrete date for when you'll be able to watch it on your TV at home via one of the best streaming services. But despite the fact that there's no official date for when you can catch it on streaming services, we know where its streaming home will be. Read on for more on our thoughts on when "The Iron Claw" will be available to stream.
When and where will 'The Iron Claw' be available for streaming?
"The Iron Claw" should be available on Max when it's time for the film's streaming debut. The Warner Bros. Discovery-owned streaming platform inked a deal with A24 in December. Under this agreement, "The Iron Claw" will stream on Max in addition to all of A24's recent films, including "Priscilla" and "Dicks: The Musical."
Of course, that doesn't answer the question of when you can start streaming "The Iron Claw" at home. It's not yet available on Max, but we have an educated guess as to when it could make its appearance.
The movie is now arriving on paid video-on-demand (PVOD) services starting February 13. "Priscilla" and "Dicks: The Musical" both took another two-to-three months after their PVOD release date before arriving on Max. With that in mind, we expect "The Iron Claw" to arrive on Max in late April or early May 2024.
That's a long time to wait. So for right now, if you want to see what the praise and critical acclaim is all about (or just more of Jeremy Allen White fresh off "The Bear's" recent Emmys sweep), the best idea for you is to buy or rent it from PVOD. We'll update this article once we have an official Max date.
