Onesumore: ‘Love and Monsters’ Coming to Netflix Internationally in April 2021
Looking for the perfect combination of action, drama, romance and comedy? Love and monsters, the movie Paramount, will land on Netflix on April 14, 2021. In other words, everywhere except from Netflix in the United States.
Love and monsters is a comedy-drama for teenagers directed by Michael Matthews and produced by Stranger things’ Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.
The film has been in the works since 2012 and was slated to hit theaters in February 2021. However, due to the pandemic, release plans have changed. Instead, the film received a PVOD release on select US platforms, as well as a limited release in a handful of US theaters in October 2020.
Then, on St. Patrick’s Day 2021, Netflix announced that it would release the movie to anywhere except the United States next month:
LOVE AND MONSTERS! And @Dylan O’Brien! And a very, very good dog!
