The release of “Bros” makes history as the first major studio film with an all openly LGBTQ cast. The brainchild of co-writer/director Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) and co-writer/star Billy Eichner, the R-rated comedy follows an unlikely love story from two echelons of the gay community: a blunt podcaster who works at an LGBTQ+ museum and what Bobby calls “gay Tom Brady.”
If you’re wondering how to watch the rom-com when it premieres Sept. 30, we have the answers to all your questions.
When does “Bros” come out?
“Bros” opens Friday, Sept. 30, 2022.
Is “Bros” streaming or in theaters?
“Bros” will be streaming exclusively in theaters when it’s first released, so right now the only way to see the film is in a theater. Check your local listings.
While a streaming release date has not yet been announced, “Bros” will eventually be streaming on Peacock since it’s a Universal Pictures release. As for how soon, it depends. “The Black Phone” was on Peacock less than two months after it hit theaters, but “Jurassic World Dominion” wasn’t streaming on Peacock until almost three months after its theatrical debut.
What is “Bros” about?
The comedy centers on Bobby, a gay man working at an LGBTQ+ Museum who is content with his independent life. In fact, he thrives in being single and has no interest in coupling up — that is until he meets Aaron, who Bobby describes as “gay Tom Brady.” Although the pair seems to be incompatible, they are anything but and both share a hesitancy toward commitment — a barrier they must work through to make their relationship work.
Who is in the “Bros” cast?
Billy Eichner and Luke Macfarlane star as Bobby and Aaron, respectively. The star-studded cast also includes Kristin Chenoweth, Monica Raymund, Dot-Marie Jones, Jim Rash, Debra Messing,
Amy Schumer, Bowen Yang and Kenan Thompson.
Eichner told TheWrap at the Toronto Film Festival that nearly all of the film’s cast is LGBTQ+, another rarity in a studio comedy, saying “What we discovered is that there are so many hilarious, profoundly talented, openly LGBTQ+ performers out there who’ve never been given an opportunity to shine in a movie of this scale.”
