About Code 8 Movie:

Code 8 is a Canadian science fiction action film written and directed by Jeff Chan, and starring the cousins Stephen and Robbie Amell.

In 2016, Robbie and Stephen Amell released a short film, Code 8, which acted as a teaser for a potential feature film. An Indiegogo fundraising campaign asking for $200,000 was launched on March 23 and reached $2.4 million by April 24. Fundraising closed with $3.4 million on December 31, 2019, with the continued campaign helping recover costs of DVD pressings and the distribution to contributors of perks, wardrobe, and props from the production. A four-minute segment of the film’s closing credits shows a list of only some of the 30,810 contributors[3] to the fundraising campaign.

The first announcement of an additional cast came on June 12, 2017, when Laysla De Oliveira joined.

Principal photography began on June 1, 2017, in Toronto.

Ryan Taubert composed the film score, and Sony Masterworks released the soundtrack.

On February 9, 2017, during the Berlin International Film Festival, XYZ Films acquired the international sales rights for the film.

The film was released theatrically in Canada on 6 December 2019 and in the United States on December 13; its streaming release on Netflix followed on April 11, 2020.

The film’s sequel, Code 8: Part II, was released on Netflix on February 28, 2024.
