Bleecker Street Sets Amazon Deal

Amazon and Bleecker Street have struck a multi-year content licensing agreement that will see the Prime Instant Video service be the exclusive subscription home for Bleecker Street theatrical releases that starts with the Al Pacino-starrer Danny Collins, and the upcoming Tobey Maguire-starrer Pawn Sacrifice.

Future titles that will hit the service include the Blythe Danner Sundance acquisition I’ll See You In My Dreams; the Viggo Mortensen-starrer Captain Fantastic; and Trumbo, which stars Bryan Cranston as blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo.

“Prime members love independent films and we’re excited to add these compelling Bleecker Street titles to Prime Instant Video,” said Amazon’s Brad Beale. Said Bleecker Street CEO Andrew Karpen: “As we build out our collection of films, it’s important to us to share the work of these amazing filmmakers with a broad viewing audience. We look forward to bringing Prime members an entertainment experience we’re sure they’ll love.”
