Bros Gets A Streaming Premiere After Billy Eichner’s Comments About No One Seeing Gay Rom-Coms In Theaters Went Viral

Billy Eichner’s romantic comedy Bros hit the scene this September to rave reviews, and positive reception for its representation of the LGBTQ+ community. Unfortunately, the film did not perform as well at the box office as Eichner would have hoped, and he famously expressed his disappointment on Twitter about its commerciality. Now, the flick is getting a streaming premiere, despite its previous hopes for theatrical success. 

Peacock (opens in new tab) recently announced that Bros will be available to Peacock subscribers on December 2nd. The film will hopefully reach a wider audience with its Peacock premiere. The streamer has recently prioritized debuting films on their platform shortly after their theatrical releases. For example, Peacock premiered Halloween Ends alongside the film’s theatrical run, and obtained Jurassic World Dominion shortly following its blockbuster theatrical success. The streaming service brokered a deal with Universal last year, so it won’t be long before 2022’s other theatrically released rom-com, Ticket to Paradise, lands on the streamer as well.
