Is Sisu on Netflix?
No, the film hasn’t released on Netflix yet but that doesn’t mean it can’t be released on the network.
We can expect the Nazi hunting movie to arrive on Netflix after it’s theatrical run because SONY Pictures have acquired the international distribution rights for the film.
Since SONY has a deal with Netflix that their newest movies will be relesase on their network, we wouldn’t be suprised if this new Finnish film will come to the streaming giant. Then, Sisu Netflix release date is still awaited among fans.
Moreover, there are lots of World War themed movies on Netflix that you can watch right away on American Netflix like The Longest Day, Paradise Highway, War Horse, The Handmaid Tale, Inglorius Basterds, Faraway, The Imitation Game, Operation Mincemeat, The Pianist, Saving Private Ryan, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Testament of Youth, The Siege of Jadotville, etc.
