Magnolia Pictures is gearing up to release the action-comedy Thelma on VOD and digital streaming platforms next month. Following its world premiere at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival and a theatrical release on June 21st, this highly anticipated film will soon be available for home viewing.

Directed and written by Josh Margolin, Thelma stars June Squibb in her first leading film role alongside Fred Hechinger, Richard Roundtree, Parker Posey, Clark Gregg, and Malcolm McDowell. Inspired by Margolin’s own grandmother, the film offers a clever spin on the action genre by spotlighting an elderly grandmother as an unlikely action hero. With humor and heart, Thelma tackles the challenges of aging while showcasing Squibb’s remarkable grit and determination.

What is the movie ‘Thelma’ about?

Inspired by director Josh Margolin’s real-life experience with his grandmother, Thelma offers a fresh and witty twist on the action genre reminiscent of Mission: Impossible. The film centers on an elderly grandmother who defies expectations to become an unlikely action hero. Margolin infuses the narrative with infectious humor, using familiar action tropes in age-appropriate and hilarious ways to explore themes of aging with dignity and agency. In her first leading role of a remarkable 70-year career, June Squibb shines as the indomitable Thelma, displaying grit and determination as she proves she can handle any challenge. Despite doubts from her daughter Gail (Parker Posey), son-in-law Alan (Clark Gregg), and grandson Danny (Fred Hechinger), Thelma demonstrates that she’s more than capable of taking care of business.

What is the digital streaming release date for ‘Thelma’?

After a brief, limited release, Magnolia Pictures is gearing up to release Thelma for home viewing. The movie will be making its digital streaming premiere on VOD platforms on July 19th, 2024.

Is ‘Thelma’ on Netflix, Prime Video, or Max?

Right now, it’s tough to say if Thelma will make its subscription-based debut on either of the platforms. Since Magnolia Picture has its own indie streaming platform, Magnolia Selects, it’s possible the film will be available there after the premium video-on-demand run. Please stay tuned for more updates.

When does ‘Thelma’ come out on streaming?

Your guess is as good as mine at this point in time because Thelma has yet to make its video-on-demand debut. So, it’s hard to say when it will be available on any paid streaming service.

Is ‘Thelma’ available to rent or buy digitally?

As mentioned above, Thelma will be available to Buy/Rent on Premium VOD services like Amazon, iTunes, VUDU, etc., beginning 19 July. Magnolia Picture hasn’t put the title up for pre-order yet, but it shouldn’t be long before they do.
