It is expected that the movie will land on HBO Max in August of 2024.

How to watch Civil War online?

But if you don't want to wait four months and don't want to choose to go to theatres, Civil War can be purchased and rented earlier on digital video-on-demand (DVOD) sites such as Amazon Prime Video (AMV) and YouTube TV (YTV). The pricing, options, and alternatives of this service are usually published within 45 days after the movie's original theatrical release. Therefore, the earliest that Civil War could be available on digital would be around May 27, 2024.

The Civil War 2024 cast lineup includes: Kirsten Dunst portrays Lee, Cailee Spaeny plays Jessie, Wagner Moura stars as Joel, Stephen McKinley Henderson appears as Sammy, Nick Offerman takes on the role of President, Jefferson White is Dave, Nelson Lee plays Tony, Evan Lai is Bohai, and Jesse Plemons appears as Soldier.

Do we have a trailer for Civil War?

“There is something in the film which is trying to be protective of [journalists],” Garland told Guardian in an interview. “I think serious journalism needs protecting because it’s under attack, so I wanted to make those people ‘heroes’ to put them front and centre.” He added while reflecting on his choice of actions and plot in the movie.
