The Neon Demon will stream on Amazon Video next month
If you missed the artistic-thriller ‘The Neon Demon’ in theaters this year, you will have a chance to stream the film on Amazon Video. The film only saw a limited domestic release, but luckily it will be available online for everyone to enjoy.
The film, which was released in theaters through Amazon Studios, will become available on the site’s streaming service starting on November 3, 2016. The film will also be an exclusive, so you won’t find it on any other subscription services.
Thriller fans will be able to stream the film using the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/originals.
The film will be available at no additional cost to Prime members, and Prime members will also be able to download the film to mobile devices for offline viewing. That offline viewing option is perfect for the holiday travel season coming up, so make sure you take advantage of it. If you aren’t a Prime member, you can sign-up for a free trial at amazon.com/prime.
Of course Amazon Prime is a perfect location for Amazon Studios to launch the film. The studio launched back in 2010 as a new way for Amazon to develop feature films and episodic series for the company. First announced in January 2015, Amazon Original Movies is an initiative by Amazon Studios to produce and acquire original movies for theatrical release and early window distribution exclusively for Prime members.
The Neon Demon follows aspiring model Jesse (Fanning) after she moves to Los Angeles. It’s there that her youth and vitality are soon preyed upon by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will use any means necessary to get what she has. The thriller was praised for its cinematic storytelling and did well in theaters, pulling in $1.33M at just 783 domestic locations after six-weeks.
The film was written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, with Mary Laws and Polly Stenham also sharing writing credit. The film stars Jena Malone, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Elle Fannning, Abbey Lee, Bella Heathcote, Desmond Harrington and Karl Glusman.
