Where to Watch 'Back to Black': Showtimes for the Amy Winehouse Biopic

After the Amy Winehouse biopic was announced in 2022, fans eagerly awaited its release and speculated about who would portray the iconic British singer. It was later revealed that Marisa Abela, known for her role in “Industry,” would star as Amy Winehouse, with Sam Taylor-Johnson directing. The film, titled “Back to Black,” also features Jack O’Connell and Lesley Manville, and chronicles Amy’s journey from aspiring musician to global star with the release of her second album, “Back to Black.”

As many know, Winehouse’s career was tragically short, ending with her death at 27. The biopic explores her music, her tumultuous relationship with Blake Fielder-Civil, and her battles with fame and addiction. Here’s everything you need to know about watching the film.

Release Dates for ‘Back to Black’

The biopic premiered in the U.K. on April 14, 2024, followed by releases in Germany and the Netherlands on April 18, France on April 24, and New Zealand on April 25. The North American release is set for May 17, 2024, after an initial date of May 10 was pushed back.

Is ‘Back to Black’ in Theaters?

Yes, “Back to Black” will be exclusively in theaters initially. Streaming options are not available yet, but given that other Focus Features films, like “Drive-Away Dolls,” eventually streamed on Peacock, it’s possible this biopic will follow a similar path after its theatrical run.

Reception and Criticism

The film has garnered both praise and criticism. Critics and fans have noted Marisa Abela’s performance, particularly her vocals, but have debated whether the biopic captures Winehouse’s unique musical style. Despite mixed reviews, Abela shared with Vanity Fair that she had a positive experience portraying Amy Winehouse in her first major film role.

Watch the Trailer for ‘Back to Black’

The trailer for “Back to Black” debuted on February 2, 2024, featuring Abela as Winehouse.
