Russell Crowe will become a horror movie lead on The Pope's Exorcist release date

Is The Pope’s Exorcist streaming? The prospect of Russell Crowe in a horror movie is an interesting one. The Oscar-winning star has done just about every kind of movie over the years, but he has steadfastly avoided the spooky side of cinema. Until now.

In his new movie The Pope’s Exorcist, Crowe plays the real-life priest Father Gabriele Amorth. The real Amorth claimed to have performed tens of thousands of exorcisms during his life, and this horror movie tells the story of one of the most disturbing. As with many scary movies based on a true story, it takes some liberties with the truth. After all, we want that terrifying spectacle.

And if you’re indeed on the search for that demonic spectacle, we’ve got you covered on how to watch The Pope’s Exorcist. So without further ado, let’s dive into the shadows with one of the best actors of all time in what might be his darkest movie yet.

How to watch The Pope’s Exorcist

The Pope’s Exorcist is in US cinemas from April 14, 2023, and UK cinemas from April 7, 2023.

It’s good news for British audiences, as they can catch Russell Crowe’s descent into demonic darkness a week before audiences in the USA. The movie is exclusive to multiplexes for now, and is being released by Sony Pictures.

So if you want to see Crowe face off against malevolent forces from the depths of hell, you’ll need to hop on the bus and book yourself a cinema ticket. At least you won’t have to take on any demons on the way. Probably. We don’t know what your bus route is like.
