Ryan Reynolds’ ‘Mississippi Grind’ Launches on DirecTV VOD Ahead of Theater Release

Gambling drama “Mississippi Grind,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn, is launching on DirecTV VOD, six weeks before its September 25 theatrical debut.

The film became available Aug. 13 for 72-hour rental in Blu-ray format for $12.99 and in standard-definition for $11.99.

Mendelsohn plays a troubled gambler whose luck turns when he meets Reynolds’ nonchalant poker player. They embark on a road trip and visit seemingly every bar, racetrack, casino and pool hall they can find.

Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden directed “Mississippi Grind,” which also stars Sienna Miller, Analeigh Tipton, Robin Weigert and Alfre Woodard.

“Mississippi Grind” is one of the highest-profile films to emerge from the 2-year-old A24-DirecTV partnership to release movies exclusively on the satellite TV provider before they hit theaters. Other titles have included Charlize Theron’s thriller “Dark Places”; the Aubrey Plaza-starrer “Life After Beth”; Atom Egoyan’s “Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds; and Julius Avery’s directorial debut, “Son of a Gun,” with Ewan McGregor and Brenton Thwaites.
