Origin, Ava DuVernay's 2024 biographical drama, is almost ready for its online release as fans wait to find out when it will be available to watch on streaming.

DuVernay's latest big-screen effort centers on Isabel Wilkerson as she writes her book, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, traveling worldwide to research social class systems from across the world.

Origin debuted at the Venice Film Festival in September 2023 before making a limited theatrical release in Los Angeles, California on December 8. It then hit theaters nationwide under Neon distribution on January 19, receiving critical acclaim as it currently sits at an 83% Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes.

When Will 2024 Origin Movie Release Online?

According to the When to Stream X (formerly Twitter) account, Ava DuVernay's Origin will make its online release on Tuesday, March 12.

On that day, it will be available for purchase and rent in most online/VOD marketplaces, including Apple, Amazon, and Google.

This marks a 53-day gap between its worldwide theatrical release and online release dates, leaving many to wonder when it will make its way to a streaming service.

When Will Origin Begin Streaming in 2024?

Although Origin has an online release date confirmed, there are still no signs pointing to when Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor and Jon Bernthal's new hit movie will debut on a streaming service.

Looking at other films distributed by Neon, Oscar-favorite Anatomy of a Fall took 70 days to move from theaters to its online release between October 13 and December 22, 2023. This marks a slightly higher gap than Origin's 53-day timeline.

Also important to note is that Neon-distributed movies all make their way to Hulu during the Pay One streaming period, which takes about four months (120 days after opening in theaters).

Taking that timeline into account, Origin's most likely streaming release date would be Friday, May 17, with movies like this one usually getting a streaming release on Fridays.

Origin is now playing in theaters, and its online release date is on Tuesday, March 12.
