The King's Man rent online release date latest

Having had its debut on the big screen, The King’s Man rent online release date won’t be too far behind it, so here’s everything we know so far. There will be two opportunities to rent the film with the first being home premier and the second being the standard online rental, so we’ll take you through the latest details for both of these, covering when it should come out in the UK and North America.

The film takes things back to the origins of the Kingsman service, which began at the turn of the 20th century as global powers and tyrannical forces combined to create a new global threat to the more civilised world. That makes it both a prequel and an origin story for both Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

There’s obviously no Eggsy this time around, but instead there’s a determined young soldier called Conrad Oxford (Harris Dickson) who gets trained by his father, the Duke of Oxford (Ralph Feinnes). With a very small team they have to go up against a sinister cabal of villains who plot war for their own ill-gotten gains, including Grigori Rasputin (Rhys Ifans).

Home premier rental release / In-theater early access

You’ll get to see The King’s Man from the comfort of your own personal cinema room with the home premier rental release. If you track forward from the arrival of the film at the box office (26th December 2021 in the UK and 22nd December in North America) then you should expect the in-theater early access to come out around February 2022.

However, it’s cinema run came as the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 pandemic started to reach its peak in the UK, so it’s possible that this might affect how quickly it comes out for home premier. If you assume that the media coverage for Omicron reduced the number of people going to see the film in the cinema then it makes sense for 20th Century Studios to increase its options for sales.

As a result, it may well be out to rent online even earlier. Amazon Video is usually the quickest to get access to cinema releases for home premier, so that will probably be the first place to see the film outside of the cinema. It should also be available on iTunes and the Google Play store around the same time.

Standard rent online release date

In terms of a best case scenario, we could get the standard rent online release around mid March 2022 for both the UK and North America, but there has been a lot of change in the industry in recent months. This has shrunk the gap between cinema and home entertainment in the UK, so it’s more in line with the North America release schedule.

It’s hard to call whether or not it’s going to be a permanent change or a temporary shift to compensate for the lower numbers of cinema goers. If things do go back to the previous order of things then The King’s Man rental release date could be much longer for the UK with an estimate of late April being your best bet.

However, the vast majority of films released over the summer have gone on to come out quickly for home entertainment. The latest Bond film, for example, No Time To Die, arrived on the big screen on the 30th September 2021 and then went on to release on DVD and Blu-ray on the 20th December.

The standard rent online options for No Time To Die haven’t yet come out as of the 2nd January 2022 in the UK, but its usually within a couple of weeks of the DVD and Blu-ray, so it should be available early in the New Year. However, it’s already available in North America, so it shouldn’t be too far behind in the UK.

If that’s the case then it’ll be a strong indicator of how quickly things will be available for rental after the DVD and Blu-ray comes out. This will help to back up the March 2022 outlook above, so we’ll update things here as soon as No Time To Die gets the green light in the UK to match the US.

We’ll also update things as they get officially confirmed, but the latest we have above should give you some dates to aim for. The home premier/in-theater early access release will be the earliest option, so that will be the first thing to look out for, but that’s still a little way off, so for now your main option is the cinema for a month or so at least.
