February 16, 2024

Following its acclaimed global theatrical run and Academy and BAFTA Award nominations, Apple Original Films has announced that Ridley Scott’s action epic feature Napoleon will become available to stream globally on Apple TV+ beginning March 1st.

Since its debut, Napoleon has drawn broad critical acclaim, and the film has been nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects, Best Production Design and Best Costume Design. The film also received four BAFTA nominations for Outstanding British Film of the Year, Best Costume Design, Best Make Up & Hair and Best Special Visual Effects.

Directed by Scott from a screenplay by David Scarpa, Napoleon stars Joaquin Phoenix as the French emperor and military leader. The film is an original and personal look at Napoleon Bonaparte’s origins and his swift, ruthless climb to emperor, viewed through the prism of his addictive and often volatile relationship with his wife and one true love, Josephine, played by Vanessa Kirby. The film captures Napoleon’s famous battles, relentless ambition and astounding strategic mind as an extraordinary military leader and war visionary.

An Apple Studios production in conjunction with Scott Free Productions, Napoleon is directed and produced by Scott, and also produced by Kevin J. Walsh, Mark Huffam and Phoenix, with Michael Pruss and Aidan Elliott serving as executive producers.
