The past 18 months have been a turbulent time for movie releases with the Covid-19 pandemic forcing films to move online or delay their release dates.

Despite the changing landscape, new films have found their way onto screens one way or another and the newest arrival from A24 in the US, Lamb, is about to bleat its way onto our screens.

But just where will Lamb be available to watch? Can film fans stream the movie or is Lamb coming to theaters?

Lamb release date and plot

After appearing at several film festivals over the past few months, Lamb arrives in the US on October 8th, 2021.

The film’s release date differs depending on the country in question with fans in the UK and Ireland having to wait until December 10th.

Set in rural Iceland, Lamb is the directorial debut of Valdimar Jóhannsson and it tells the story of a childless couple who make an alarming discovery one day in their sheep barn.

However, what initially appears to be a gift from the gods, soon turns into something darker in this unnerving atmospheric folktale.

Where to watch Lamb

Lamb will be available to watch exclusively in theaters when it releases in the US on October 8th.

That’s right, film fans will have to venture out to watch Lamb on the big screen as no streaming options will be available upon initial release.

While Lamb is initially releasing in cinemas, the film is expected to come to digital stores such as Google Play and Amazon Prime Video’s store as well as physical formats later down the line.
