Amsterdam was officially released on October 7th 2022, and you're probably wondering where you can watch it?
I have good and bad news; sadly Amsterdam will not be appearing on Netflix anytime soon. However, the good news is that the David O. Russell comedy thriller will be available to stream on Disney+ on December 7th 2022.
Boasting an all-star cast that includes Christian Bale, Margot Robbie and John David Washington, Amsterdam is set in the 1930s. It is based on the Business Plot, a 1933 political conspiracy in the US, and follows three friends.
They are a doctor, Burt Berendsen (Bale), a nurse named Valeria Voze (Robbie), and a lawyer, Harold Woodman (Washington).
When they all witness a murder and are framed for it, they uncover one of the most outrageous plots in American history.
If you're not already a Disney+ subscriber, now is the perfect time to sign up. In addition to Amsterdam, Disney+ has an impressive lineup of original content, including shows like The Mandalorian and fantastic family movies such as Hocus Pocus 2.
So mark your calendars now and get ready to see on of the best ensemble casts of any movie ever made!

Watch Amsterdam For Free?
I would not advise anyone to use illegal streams. Instead, you can sign up for Disney+ for a small initial fee and then cancel before you are charged for the month following.
This will give you access to Amsterdam and all the other great content that Disney+ has to offer.
Occasionally, Disney+ opens up its streaming service for free. This has happened a few times since the service launched, like when they allowed non-subscribers to watch FREE GUY (21 Sept 2021) so it's worth keeping an eye out for.
If a free day/weekend is announced, be sure to sign up and take advantage of it!
What Is Amsterdam About?
Amsterdam beings during World War 1 in 1918 when two injured soldiers become friends and are nursed back to health by Valerie Voze.
Now firm friends, the trio move to Amsterdam and live with each other before heading off in different directions in their lives.
15 years later, Burt and Harold are still friends when they uncover the murder of Senator Bill Meakins after Burt performs an autopsy at his daughter's request.
However, when they give her the news, she is murdered, and witnesses place the blame on Burt and Harold. When Valerie comes back into the picture, the three then set about clearing their names and finding the culprits who are actually responsible.
The film is directed by David O. Russell, who has earned three Academy Award nominations for The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.
Usually, a David O. Russell movie is met with huge critical acclaim. Unfortunately, Amsterdam has not been very well received by the critics who have given it an average rating of 5.1/10 on Rotten Tomatoes.
That poor critical reception didn't do the movie any favours when it hit cinemas. With poor box office earnings of just $31 million, against a production budget of $80 million, it is estimated to have lost the studio an estimated $97 million. That's when you add in things like production budgets, marketing, actors fees, and other costs.
That said, critics and real world audiences often have very different opinions about what is entertaining. Rule of thumb is that if the critics hate it, it's probably worth watching!
Disney+ tends to produce high-quality content, so we do not doubt that Amsterdam will be a hit when it starts streaming on December 7th 2022!
More Disney+ Movies?
Disney Plus has an impressive lineup of original content, along with brilliant Disney movies, you'll also get access to the Pixar catalogue (Onward, Turning Red, Coco and Soul).
Thye also stream all movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Black Panther, Spiderman Far From Home and Guardians of the Galaxy etc…) and not forgetting all the Star Wars movies and series.
Subscribers outside the U.S. also benefit from content which is normally only seen on HULU. Recently the new Predator movie Prey dropped on Disney+ for non-US viewers. Arguably making the streaming service a better deal for those not in the States.
They have something for everyone in the family! If you're not already a Disney+ subscriber, now is the perfect time to sign up.
You can cancel anytime so there's no risk, and you'll be able to watch Amsterdam!
