And the streaming wars rage on. As the pandemic continues to alter the theatrical release windows for many studios, NBCUniversal has made a move that will make Peacock a more viable player in 2022. Beginning in January, all theatrical films that come from Universal Filmed Entertainment Group will debut on Peacock within 45 days of release. This means that you can catch titles like The Black Phone, Ambulance, and Halloween Ends in your home for your viewing pleasure, you just have to wait a bit. No word yet on a day-and-date strategy (theaters and Peacock on the same day).
