Hulu’s big new movie for December 2021 is coming to Netflix exclusively internationally with the movie set to arrive in all regions outside the US in January 2022. Here’s what you need to know about the Hulu Original (now Netflix Original) Mother/Android coming to Netflix.
So let’s address the elephant in the room up front. What is the reason Hulu Original will be coming to Netflix? Well, as you may know, Hulu only operates in the US so doesn’t have a distribution arm internationally. While Disney+ Star could be considered that Disney+ Star would be that home, in this case the film was sold to Netflix. That’s almost certainly because Miramax is the primary distributor behind the movie.
It’s also worth noting that Netflix has a relationship with the production company behind Mother/Android, 6th & Idaho Motion Picture Company. Although this is unlikely to be related, it is worth noting.
Hulu Original Movies has been released internationally by Netflix several times before. Recently, they did this with Run by Sarah Paulson which was released to Netflix April 2, 2021. We’ve also seen Bad Hair licensed to Netflix in some regions recently.
Now let’s get into what you need to know about Mother/Android.
Hulu will be the first to show this movie on 17 December 2021.
The film Mother/Android will be released on Netflix in all regions starting January 7, 2022.
