Where to Watch Violent Night - Is it Streaming?

Instead of spending your Christmas curled up on the sofa watching romantic comedies and nostalgic pastimes, why not indulge in a John Wick-styled festive escapade as we reveal where you can watch Violent Night.

The turbulent Christmas movie had its world premiere at New York Comic Con back in October 2022, and early reviews are calling it a “ho-ho-whole lot of fun.”

Directed by Tommy Wirkola and written by Pat Casey and Josh Miller, the action-comedy features Santa Clause who must save Christmas for a wealthy family who are being held up on Christmas Eve by a group of mercenaries.

Is it Streaming? – Will Violent Night Be on Netflix?

No, Violent Night will not be streaming on Netflix when it releases, nor will it be available to watch on Netflix.

Since the movie is distributed by Universal Pictures, there’s a chance that it will come to Peacock after it serves its cinema run.

Peacock is a service operated by a division of NBCUniversal and has become the streaming home for past releases under that umbrella before.

Where to Watch Violent Night

The only place you will be able to watch Violent Night when it releases on Friday, December 2, 2022, is in theatres.

Universal is releasing the festive project as a cinema exclusive, despite many distributors opting to have a streaming release alongside its theatrical one.

Even though you’ll be able to watch Violent Night throughout December in the cinema, there’s still a chance it will come to Peacock next year.
