Netflix and Relativity Media bring First Run movies to the home
Netflix on-demand grows with each day, bringing movies to the fingertips of the masses at large. From classics to hit television shows and newer movies the catalog has a bit of something for everyone. Today Netflix brings news of a new change, a deal to bring first run movies from Relativity Media to netflix subscribers for the first time.
The first wave covered by the new agreement includes “The Fighter” with Christian Bale, Mark Wahlberg and Amy Adams. The other is “Skyline” directed by the Brothers Strause. Unfortunately the release dates are still a bit off with both of them set to be ready in early 2011, “Season of the Witch” and “Movie 43” by Peter Farley are also on the list but those will arrive toward the end of the year.
For those scratching their heads about Relativity, the company has worked with productions such as “Robin Hood” “Get Him to the Greek” and “Grown Ups”. With the group funding about 20-30 pictures each year it seems like viewers on Netflix will have some time to sit at home with friends and family to enjoy the debut.
