Where can you watch The Little Things?
With the ongoing pandemic, Warner Bros. Pictures is once again opting for a limited theatre release, as well as dropping The Little Things on to streaming service, HBO Max in the US - a similar move which they adopted for the DC sequel, Wonder Woman 1984 back on Christmas Day.
Of course, many of us won't feel safe making a trip to the movies. Thankfully, there are means to watch The Little Things online. Keep reading to find out exactly how.
When can you watch The Little Things?

Watch The Little Things: Where to stream outside the US
Unfortunately HBO Max is a US-only streaming service and requires an American credit card to sign-up, meaning even the use of a fantastic VPN won't allow you to bypass these substantial geo-restrictions.
For UK release, the only clue we currently have is a vague date of February 12. At this moment, then, we can only make educated guesses on what the release of The Little Things in the UK might look like.
Taking the lead from last year's UK release of Wonder Woman 1984, following its release on HBO Max in the US, it is likely The Little Things will receive a PVOD release. That is, a premium video on-demand platform release. This usually means paying the equivalent of a cinema ticket for a 48 hour rental from the likes of Prime Video or Sky.
The same goes for Australian movie fans, with a release date of February 18, but with no further details beyond that. Unlike other countries, though, for Wonder Woman 1984, Australia was able to exclusively watch the DC Superhero movie in the cinema, with no VOD options available at all, so it may be that you get to be on the edge of your seat in an actual cinema, rather than your couch at home.
Released on the same day in Canada as the US, Canadian movie watchers looking to see what The Little Things is all about have a few options of where to watch John Lee Hancock's latest creation. Rent for 48 hours from Prime Video for $24.99. Other PVOD options include Microsoft (opens in new tab), Cineplex Store, Apple TV, Google Play Store, and YouTube.
If you want to view it on the big screen, The Little Things is also showing in select theatres across Canada.
