While Universal+ should arrive in France by the end of 2022, Amazon Prime Video has just signed a major agreement with two major players in the film industry: the Warner Bros. Discovery and Sony Pictures. In any case, this is what our colleagues from the Variety site reveal, always up to date with the latest news from the 7th art.

Thus, the e-commerce giant has entered into a partnership with the two studios to considerably enrich the Amazon Prime Video catalog in France notably. First, the deal with Warner Bros. Discovery grants the streaming platform first-window rights to Warner Bros. TV series Discovery to come to France, as Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, the first two seasons ofThe Sex Lives of College Girls”, Ava Duvernay’s post-apocalyptic mini-seriesDMZ” with Rosario Dawson as headliner or season 1 of “Peacemaker” by James Gunn with John Cena in the title role (note: a character already seen in Tea Suicide Squad by James Gunn).

Other series previously broadcast on other services will also arrive on the Prime Video catalog such as Legacies, Pretty Little Liars, Fringe, One Tree Hill, The Originals or Shameless.

The latest Sony films will also land on Prime Video

Note that this partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery comes as the studio has confirmed that HBO MAX will never arrive in France. Finally, we will have to wait until 2024 and the launch of a new platform resulting from the merger between Warner and Discovery.

We then come to the agreement signed with Sony Pictures. Thanks to him, Prime Video gets second-window rights (i.e. after Canal+) films released in theaters from the studio. Due to the media chronology in force in France, Prime Video will be able to offer these films on its catalog 17 months after their theatrical release.

This agreement notably concerns films by the Spider-Man franchiseas Spider-Man No Way Homebut also other superhero movies like the infamous Venom: Let There Be Carnage or the recent Morbius with Jared Leto. We also find in the list the adaptation of the game Uncharted with Tom Holland without forgetting Ghostbuster: Afterlife. French productions Operation Portugal and A Mermaid in Paris are also part of it. Some of these films should land on Prime Video at the end of 2022.
