A Streaming Guide to Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla


Products You May Like

Sofia Coppola’s much-anticipated Priscilla Presley biopic—titled, naturally, Priscilla—is really less of a biopic than a diorama. The film studies the young Priscilla Beaulieu’s behavior as she seeks, inhabits, and eventually rejects the beautiful but constrictive box within which her rock-star lover, Elvis Presley, places her as their romance takes them from West Germany to Memphis to Vegas. Based on the true story of their marriage, and featuring exact scenes replicated from Priscilla’s 1985 memoir, Elvis and Me, the film follows Cailee Spaeny’s Priscilla as she meets Jacob Elordi’s Elvis in 1959, marries him in 1967, and eventually leaves him in 1972.

Right now, there’s only one way to watch Coppola’s latest: Get thyself to a theater. As of November 3, the A24 picture is playing in cinemas everywhere, and will maintain this theatrical window for a number of weeks before the film is available to watch digitally.

Buy Tickets for Priscilla

If you’re hoping to watch Priscilla from the comfort of your couch, you’re in for a long wait. A24 projects have no singular streaming home—they’re spread primarily across Netflix, Apple TV+, Max, and Showtime—but Paramount+ with Showtime boasts most of the company’s recent catalog, thanks to a development deal struck between the two entities in 2019. That deal was supposedly inked only for films released through November 2022, but at least one A24 picture that dropped past that date is currently also on Paramount+ (The Whale). So it’s not a leap to suspect Priscilla could arrive as part of the app’s offerings in 2024—unless, of course, A24 announces other plans.

Before then, the company will likely make the film available to purchase on-demand through iTunes, Amazon Prime, and YouTube. That drop could come as early as January 2024, should A24 wish to build hype ahead of March’s Oscars ceremony. Either way, Graceland awaits.
