Now, after the Haunting in Venice box office ended its run with $112 million grossed, its streaming and digital release date has been revealed.

This will be followed by its release on Blu-ray and DVD on November 28, just in time for the holidays.
How Did A Haunting in Venice Perform In Theaters?
As indicated by its franchise-high Rotten Tomatoes score, A Haunting in Venice received the best reviews of the trilogy, which also includes Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. However, this critical acclaim didn’t translate to great box office returns. The threequel ended its run with $112 million grossed, well behind the first film, which made over $352 million in 2017. It even failed to surpass the less successful sequel, Death on the Nile, which grossed $137 million following several delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2022.
A Haunting in Venice ended its box office run as the lowest-grossing entry in the trilogy. This begs the question of why, despite receiving some of the best reviews, the series continues to see diminishing returns at the box office. One explanation could be the drastic shift in tone to horror, which may have turned off the slightly older demographic interested in more traditional murder mysteries featuring the famous sleuth. Though it may be the reason it underperformed in theaters, the horror-tinged Hercule Poirot sequel should make for a perfect Halloween release on Hulu.
