*“Moonlight,” this year’s best-picture Oscar winner, will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video under an extension of Amazon’s deal with studio A24, reports Deadline.
The multiyear deal, an extension of the 2013 pact between the two companies, will continue to make Amazon Prime Video the only premium subscription service for all upcoming A24 films. However, the content agreement covers only the U.S. — so Prime Video members elsewhere won’t have access to the movies as part of their subscription.
“Moonlight,” starring Mahershala Ali, will be available to U.S. subscribers of Prime Video beginning May 21.
Other A24 films coming to Prime Video in the U.S. later in 2017 include Oscar-nominated “20th Century Women” from Mike Mills, which stars Annette Bening and Elle Fanning; “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).
