Greenland has finally got a confirmed UK release date after its original cinema release was affected by the ongoing global situation.

It was revealed back in October 2020 that the movie would be skipping cinemas for an Amazon Prime Video release as a result, and now the streaming service has confirmed that Greenland will be released on February 5.

The disaster movie stars Gerard Butler and Morena Baccarin as an estranged couple who have to make a perilous journey with their son to a potential safe haven when a catastrophic global disaster hits.

Faced with terrifying news accounts of cities being destroyed by comet fragments, they must battle the increasing panic and lawlessness to save themselves, experiencing the best – and worst – of humanity along the way.

Greenland was released last year on premium VOD in the US and cinemas elsewhere in the world where they were opened. It received positive reviews and is rated Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, ranking as one of Butler's best-reviewed movies.

The movie also stars Roger Dale Floyd, Marvel's Scott Glenn from Daredevil, David Denman, Hope Davis, Andrew Bachelor and Joshua Mikel.

Following its Premium VOD release in December, Greenland is set to be released on HBO Max in the US early this year. However, the streaming service is not yet available in the UK or other countries outside the US.

Last year while promoting Greenland, Baccarin defended her smaller role in Deadpool 2 which was accused of 'fridging' her character Vanessa.

"I can understand that people felt that way and I certainly was disappointed that I didn't have more to do, because I just loved the part so much," she said.

"But in watching the film and reading the script, it felt like such an emotionally pivotal role in the film and the entire arc of his character in the film is set into motion because of what happens to my character."

Greenland is released on Amazon Prime Video in the UK on February 5.
