Die Hard with a Vengeance for a time was sold separately from the other Die Hard films in the UK and other places as the overseas distribution rights were sold to Disney due to a change in producers.

‘Nomadland’ to Bow on Disney Plus Star in the U.K., Followed by Theatrical Release

Quote:
Chloé Zhao’s awards season favorite “Nomadland” will premiere on Disney Plus Star in the U.K. on April 30, Searchlight Pictures has announced.

The film will also stream from April 30 in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Iceland. It will be made available to Disney Plus subscribers at no extra charge.

Once cinemas reopen, “Nomadland” will be available for theatrical release in the U.K. and Ireland. The earliest cinemas are expected to open in the U.K. is May 17.

“Nomadland” won Golden Globes for best motion picture (drama) and best director recently. In 2020 it won the Venice International Film Festival’s Golden Lion for best film and the Toronto International Film Festival’s people’s choice audience award.

£4.99 on Prime video, or £5.49 in UHD (on Prime). Or buy the DVD from Amazon for £6.99, or the Blu-Ray for £9.97. Why bother paying Disney £20? Patience is a virtue as they say...

Mulan isn't the only one to get the Premier Access treatment as Raya and the Last Dragon got it recently plus Black Widow and Cruella are getting it too.

Not really surprised about this as the service is expected to overtake Netflix as the biggest streaming service during this decade.

I'm surprised Gnomeo and Juliet is on Disney+ as it was distributed by eOne in the UK.

Produced by Touchstone Pictures which is (or was) owned by Disney when that film was released. eOne I believe is owned by Hasbro?
