Pig is a 2021 thriller drama American film co-written by Michael Sarnoski and Vanessa Block. It was Sarnoski’s debut as a director. The film casts Nicolas cage as “Rob” (the protagonist), Alex Wolff as “Amir,” Adam Arkin as “Darius,” Nina Belforte as “Charlotte.” Critics, as well as the audience, have copiously praised the film. The film’s plot is about Rob and his pig; Rob, a former chef in Portland, who became a truffle hunter, lives with his pig in a cottage in a jungle; the pig was his companion in hunting. However, one night some attackers attacked Rob and stole his beloved pig. So Rob went to Portland, the nearest city. As he was sure, that’s where his best friend will be.
Where Can You Watch the Movie?
The film was initially released in the theatres of the USA and Canada on 16th July 2021. The tale about the pig and hunter is set to be released in the cinemas of the UK on 20th August 2021. The independent distributor, Altitude, will distribute the movie. Despite being released in the theatres, the film Pig is unavailable on any OTT platforms such as Prime, Hulu, Disney+ Hotstar, Netflix, and HBO Max. Still, the viewers can expect the film to be streaming on Hulu because, Neon, the company which distributed the movie, had a deal with Hulu for an OTT release.
Viewers should not get their hopes high right now because no release date has been officially announced yet. Even though the movie is released in the theatres, the pandemic is slowing down and costing many films this year. Since Neon films have the right to distribute the movie, it is most likely to be released on Hulu or Shudder, an OTT platform not currently available for the Indian region. Either you are Nicolas Cage’s fan or a movie freak who loves to watch a drama thriller movie should be keeping a keen eye on the recently added movies section of the platform for the next few months.
About the Sequel
Despite the movie, Pig is a drama, action-thriller, it has scarcely any violence in it. Though Rob verbally hurts people by saying true things, and it hits people personally without the use of any vulgarities, the impact is pernicious because he speaks the truth the way he sees it. As the film continued, it turned out to be moving and gloomy as the protagonist struggles to find his companion. The saga about compassion and love is getting all the praises it deserves. It is one of the top-grossing movies of the year. Unfortunately, there is significantly less or no possibility at all of the film getting a sequel. The studio executives have drastically suffered when they make unnecessary sequels of certain movies that the audience has never asked for.
