Weird: The Al Yankovic Story Release Date

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story is scheduled to be released on Friday, November 4, 2022, in the United States, under the production companies Funny or Die and Tango.

The biopic received a $12 million (approx £10,242,780) budget to produce a larger-than-life atmosphere for the character.

While the film is considered to be a biopic showcasing real-life events, some happenings will be intentionally exaggerated for comedic value.

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story will be available to stream exclusively on The Roku Channel.

The Roku Channel launched in 2017, under Roku digital media players, and is an American over-the-top streaming service that is a free, ad-supported channel.

UK viewers will be glad to know that this service is also available in Britain, as The Roku Channel previously launched back in April 2020 on British soil.

Before the biopic’s release on The Roku Channel, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story will have its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2022.
