Devotion will be available to buy on digital with bonus content and streaming this January 8 on Paramount+

A movie that somewhat flew under the radar (pun intended) this year is the war drama, Devotion. Jonathan Majors, whose star is on the rise with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania coming out along with Creed III, shows his chops as the leading man in this historical air combat film that is based on a true story. Devotion is set to be available for purchase with never-before-seen bonus content on Digital in the U.S. and Canada as well as streaming on Paramount+ this January 8.

The official synopsis reads,
Directed by JD Dillard (SweetheartSleight), Jonathan Majors (“Creed III”) and Glen Powell (TOP GUN: MAVERICK) star in the true story of two elite U.S. Navy fighter pilots who helped turn the tide in the most brutal battle in the Korean War: Jesse Brown, the first Black aviator in Navy history and his fellow fighter pilot and friend, Tom Hudner. Their heroic sacrifices and enduring friendship would ultimately make them the Navy’s most celebrated wingmen. Additional cast include Christina Jackson (“Swagger”), Thomas Sadoski (“The Newsroom”) and Joe Jonas (The Jonas Brothers, DNCE).
