Here's Where You Can Watch Amsterdam

Prior to its 2022 release, "Amsterdam" had the look of a film that was destined to dominate not only the box office, but likely the awards season circuit as well. That, of course, didn't happen, with the David O. Russell-directed historical dramedy hitting theaters last fall on a wave of negative reviews and tepid word of mouth, only to end its theatrical run a few weeks later. The film's monumental failure reportedly cost 20th Century Studios (and parent company Disney) upwards of $100 million, and was all the more shocking given the sheer star power involved.

That star power is beyond legit, with the likes of Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Robert DeNiro, Zoe Saldana, and many more making appearances. Heck, even Taylor Swift had a role in the film, which follows a trio of World War I buddies (Bale, Robbie, and Washington) as they untangle the wilder-than-wild web of deceit that led them to be framed for murder in 1930s New York.

Though the film is hardly a masterpiece, those who've seen "Amsterdam" can likely attest that it's nowhere near as bad as some critics made out. And if you're among the many who skipped the film during its theatrical run, but might be willing to give it a chance in the comfort of your own living room, you'll be happy to know "Amsterdam" is now streaming on HBO Max. 

Amsterdam is also available on most VOD platforms

"Amsterdam" has actually been available on the HBO Max platform since December 2022, though HBO bosses haven't exactly touted the fact. Nonetheless, if you're down to watch Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, and a cavalcade of other A-listers ham it up for a couple of hours in a truly bizarre "based on true events" story, "Amsterdam" is very much worth a look.

Not everyone has a subscription to HBO Max at the moment, of course. And if you are among that group, you should know that you can still track "Amsterdam" down online for a screening if you so desire. In fact, you can add HBO Max to your current Hulu subscription for about $14.99/month if you're interested. If not, the film is readily available to either rent or purchase via most Video on Demand services, including iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, and Vudu. If you're looking to rent a digital copy of the movie in HD, it'll cost you about $3.99. And if you prefer to add it to your digital library forever and always, you can buy it for $19.99.

If digital doesn't do it for you, it should also be easy enough to track down a physical copy of "Amsterdam" for your personal collection. It appears you can grab a new DVD for about $19.99 on Amazon, with a new Blu-ray running for about $21.99. And if you're feeling saucy, you can likely dig a used copy of either for a little bit less.
