Here's How You Can Watch Gerard Butler's Plane At Home

After making a splash on the big screen, Gerard Butler's "Plane" was bound to land on TVs around the world. The action-thriller, which our review called "a '90s throwback that comes as a breath of fresh air, even if it's not the most original air you've ever tasted," has all the makings of a solid action flick: high stakes, dramatic fights, and an outlandish ending.

As a quick recap, the film follows the passengers of a downed airplane as they try to escape an island occupied by a violent rebel group. When tragedy after tragedy strikes, it's up to the pilot and a passenger charged with murder to save the day — another cruel twist of fate in itself.

While "Plane" is certainly worth a trip to the theaters, there's something to be said about watching action movies at home. Yes, movies look better on the big screen (and I'm certainly not saying that action movies should be avoided in the theaters, especially since action is probably the genre that benefits most from the big screen treatment), but when you're curled up at home with a blanket and a cozy drink, the high-stakes fights just feel a little more exciting.

To that end, I'm personally very excited for "Plane" to touchdown in living rooms everywhere. If you're in the same boat, I've got some good news.

Plane PVOD and Blu-ray release details

Get ready, friends — "Plane" is now boarding. Liongate Entertainment made the film available to rent via Premium Video on Demand (PVOD) on February 3, 2023. A "Plane" ticket (that is to say, a digital rental) will cost $19.99 for the time being, though it's important to keep in mind that PVOD involves paying a premium for early rental access to a movie.

If you're planning on watching "Plane" a few times, it might be a good idea to upgrade your ticket by buying a copy of the film outright. The movie will release as a 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), and DVD on March 28, 2023, in addition to premiering On Demand. The combo pack will also include a handful of digital special features titled "This Is Your Captain," "Plane Clothes," and "Brace for Turbulence."

Need a refresher on the movie's official synopsis? You can check it out below:

In the white-knuckle action movie "Plane," pilot Brodie Torrance (Gerard Butler) saves his passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island — only to find that surviving the landing was just the beginning. When most of the passengers are taken hostage by dangerous rebels, the only person Torrance can count on for help is Louis Gaspare (Mike Colter), an accused murderer who was being transported by the FBI. In order to rescue the passengers, Torrance will need Gaspare's help, and will learn there's more to Gaspare than meets the eye.
