The movie “The Lost City” is finally streaming “for free” (if you already pay)

The lost city hit theaters on March 25 and was only available in theaters – until now.

New movies have faced deep disruption since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has upended standard practices for knowing when and where new movies start streaming. Now, each studio and streaming service sets its own rules, and it’s hard to know how long you’ll have to wait to stream a movie and how much it will cost when you can.

Where is The Lost City streaming?

The lost city became available to stream on Paramount More early Tuesday in the United States and Canada. It will be available to stream in Australia, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy later this year.

The film is distributed by Paramount Pictures, which is owned by the same parent company as Paramount Plus.

The lost city sticks to Paramount’s recent record of keeping its live-action movies in theaters exclusively for 45 days before hitting the streaming service.

But Paramount doesn’t always stream a movie like clockwork. His previous theatrical release, Jackass Forever, landed on Paramount Plus almost exactly 45 days after its theatrical release, while the previous film, Scream, took about a week longer at around 53 days. So don’t count on Top Gun: Maverick — the next highest-profile Paramount film to come — on steam exactly 45 days after it landed in theaters on May 24.

Paramount has released movies for streaming the same day they hit theaters, but they’re usually family and kid-oriented movies, like Clifford the Big Red Dog and The Paw Patrol Movie.

Is streaming “free”?

Paramount Plus requires a paid subscription, so literally nothing about the service is free – unless you watch it while signed up for a free trial. Paramount Plus offers a standard seven-day free trial for all new members.

But for Paramount Plus subscribers, The Lost City is part of the library at no additional cost. The service never charged extra to watch a movie there. And even though Paramount Plus has two different tiers, it’s never “paid” a movie behind the more expensive membership tier.
