How to watch Smile online
In case you missed the sleeper hit which as of writing has managed to garner a total of $209 million at the box office, Smile was released earlier in the year and it follows Dr. Rose Cotter (Sosie Bacon) as she is visited by a traumatized patient who commits suicide in her office, after witnessing her professor commit suicide a few days earlier. After witnessing her death she is plagued by a smile, a smile that follows her and attaches itself to random people, haunting her.
Smile is now available to stream on Paramount Plus, where it will join the ranks of fantastic films like Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Top Gun, and Licorice Pizza. Of course, as we mentioned above, the film is coming to the streaming service after a spectacular run at the box office, managing to earn $209 million against a budget of $17 million. Smile also performed well critically, as it is certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as with audiences with an audience score of 77 percent.
Smile has a little while longer before it is released on physical media, releasing on Dec. 13, 2022, on 4K Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD.
