Netflix acquired international rights for Paramount+ Original's movie The In Between, starring Joey King. It will release the film with Netflix Original branding starting in April 2022.
The sci-fi romance movie, Paramount+'s February 11, was directed and written by Marc Klein. It only reached 162 on IMDb MovieMeter, which was a very modest number.
This movie tells the story of a teenage girl who still feels a close connection with her boyfriend after she is killed in a car accident.
Joey King stars alongside Kyle Allen, Kim Dickens, John Ortiz, Celeste O’Connor, Donna Biscoe, and April Parker Jones.
The movie received mixed reviews. It holds a 56% on RottenTomatoes with IndieWire saying the story “is never boring, even as it frequently doesn’t make a lick of sense.”
Among the regions we’ve been able to confirm receiving the movie on April 8th, 2022 includes:
Netflix acquired the worldwide streaming rights for the movie from Paramount+ outside of the United States. It is quite strange, considering Paramount+ operates outside of the United States in countries like Australia and Canada.
The best way to check if you’re getting the movie is by directly navigating to its Netflix page where a coming soon notice should be showing.
This isn’t the first time Netflix has acquired international rights to a movie that debuted exclusively on a streamer in the US. Netflix also acquired the rights to Mother/Android earlier this year. Of course, we don’t know exactly how long these movies will remain on Netflix while their parent companies roll out their platforms around the globe.
Netflix could offer Joey King international rights, which would be a great incentive. In July 2021, the actress and producer signed a contract with Netflix to create new titles in a first-look agreement. Uglies, which she wrapped filming for Netflix in December 2021 is one of her future projects.
