What do they call a Quarter Pounder with cheese in France? Amazon Prime subscribers will be able to find out beginning today after it expanded a non-exclusive licensing deal with Miramax, originally struck in 2011. The streaming service says the agreement provides it with “hundreds of Miramax titles” including Pulp Fiction (where John Travolta famously posed his question about McDonalds’ burger), Good Will Hunting, Life Is Beautiful, The English Patient, Kill Bill, Amélie, Reservoir Dogs, and Trainspotting. The companies provided virtually no other details about the terms. The agreement is consistent with Miramax’s efforts to license rights wherever it can to films in its vaults. Last year it teamed with Amazon’s LoveFilm in the UK and Germany. The studio also provides streaming rights in the UK and Ireland to Netflix.
