Amazon Prime Video grabs A24 library, including ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Free Fire’
A ton of great content headed to Prime
A wide-array of new A24 hits will be available on Amazon Prime Video this spring, joining an already impressive collection of hits. Amazon announced today that the company has extended its content agreement with A24, making Prime Video the only premium subscription home for all upcoming A24 films. As part of the deal, “Moonlight,” starring Mahershala Ali (House of Cards) is now available on Amazon Video, and starting May 21, Prime members will be able to stream and download the Oscar winning film at no additional cost to their membership.
A24’s “Swiss Army Man” starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), and the Cannes Jury Prize winner “The Lobster” starring Colin Farrell (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and Rachel Weisz (Amazon Studios’ Complete Unknown) are already available on the service. You can also find “Green Room” starring Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation) on Prime Video.
“We are thrilled to be the exclusive subscription streaming service to offer customers Academy Award winner Moonlight,” stated Jason Ropell, VP, Worldwide Head of Motion Pictures for Amazon Studios. “We already have an incredible catalog of films from A24 like Room and Ex Machina that Prime members love to watch and we are happy to extend our relationship to continue to bring Prime members these award winning, prestige films. Collaborating with A24 in addition to creating our own Academy Award winning movies like Manchester by the Sea and The Salesman make Amazon Video a premiere platform for streaming films.”
Highly anticipated A24 films coming to Prime Video later this year include Academy Award nominated “20th Century Women” from Mike Mills (Beginners) and starring Annette Bening (American Beauty) and Elle Fanning (Amazon Studios’ The Neon Demon), “American Honey” starring Sasha Lane (Hunting Lila) and Shia LaBeouf (Transformers), “Free Fire” starring Brie Larson (Room), Cillian Murphy (Inception) and Armie Hammer (Nocturnal Animals), “The Lovers” starring Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment) and Tracy Letts (Imperium) and “It Comes at Night” starring Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience). Written and directed by David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon) and starring Casey Affleck (Amazon Studios’ Manchester by the Sea), A24’s “A Ghost Story,” will also land on Prime Video.
Amazon Prime members are already enjoying access to A24’s impressive library of titles including 2016 Oscar award winning films like “Room” with Brie Larson’s Best Actress performance as Ma and Amy, the Oscar winner for Best Documentary depicting the life and death of singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse as well as the thought-provoking supernatural horror film “The Witch,” “Ex Machina,” starring Golden Globe nominee Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) and “Dark Places” starring Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass).
