What you need to know:
Now, A24 films will arrive on the Warner Bros. Discovery streaming platform directly after their theatrical release… But will this strategy also apply to Mexico? We tell you.
Competition in the streaming platform market is dense, and there are those who try to give their service an extra something that ensures good content. Yes, by this we mean to the agreement between A24 and HBO Max (or rather Max, as it is already known in the US) that just became known.
With this alliance, it is ensured that films from the renowned film studio arrive on the Warner Bros. Discovery streaming platform (WBD), whether previously released or soon-to-be released tapes. Pretty cool thing, right?
The agreement between A24 and HBO Max
All this stuff happens because The alliance that the New York production house had with Showtime ended, one of Paramount’s channels and streaming services. And since the way was clear, Warner Bros. Discovery did not stay with its arms crossed…
The new agreement between A24 and HBO Max will allow the film studio’s films arrive on the streaming platform once they finish their exhibition period in movie theaters. An example: when next The Iron Claw stops being shown in cinemas, it will be added to the platform’s catalog so that you can see it in the comfort of the place you want.
According to Variety, other films for which this strategy will be applied will be Priscilla by Sofia Coppola, Dream Scenario with Nicolas Cagethe new version of the concert film Stop Making Sense from Talking Heads, The Zone of Interestamong other.
And yes, this also includes other previously released tapes like The Whale with Brendan Fraser, Uncut Gems with Adam Sandler, the Oscar winner Everything Everywhere All At Once… Anyway, a very good part of the A24 catalog from past years is also part of this alliance with HBO Max.
But not only that, huh. The agreement between A24 and Warner Bros. Discovery will also allow feature films – whether past or upcoming – arrive on HBO pay TV channels, as well as the Cinemax cable channel broadcast. Of course, this also applies under the criterion that the films first conclude their screening period in theaters.
Let us also remember that A24 and HBO/Warner Bros. Discovery have worked together before, although in the field of series. The film studio is also part of the production team of series such as Euphoria and The Idolso perhaps it is not so far-fetched that this alliance was achieved.
Will it also apply to Mexico and Latin America?
Herein lies the doubt of several regarding the agreement with A24. Let us remember that HBO Max changed its name to MAX after the merger of the previously known WarnerMedia with Discovery Inc (which gave way to Warner Bros. Discovery).
And in that sense, This new alliance would only apply for the moment to the United States, which is the only country where the brand rebranding from HBO Max to MAX has been completed. In fact, Variety explains that the negotiation now only includes the US. But there is a possibility…
The change from HBO Max to MAX will also reach Mexico and Latin America. At first, it was announced that this would happen in the fall of 2023, but Warner Bros. Discovery postponed the plans and It is confirmed that the rebranding brand will arrive sometime in 2024 to our country.
It must be clear that This does not ensure – yet – that the agreement between A24 and HBO Max (or well, MAX, just because we still don’t get used to saying it like that hehe) Also apply in Mexico and Latin America.
We will have to wait for a future confirmation from WBD, but there is no doubt that Warner and MAX signed up for a great deal with A24, don’t you think? Meanwhile, here we tell you about the series that will arrive on the streaming platform in 2024.
