Amazon Jennifer Salke She reviewed more than $ 40 million of Sundance's acquisitions at the festival last month. She is now giving us a glimpse of her film projects – including insights on when we will be able to see films as animated as the film. Mindy Kaling the comedy Late at night, the Adam Driverdrama of the CIA The report, and more.
The head of Amazon Studios opened two new interviews that paint a more detailed picture of the company's approach to his career since Salke took office last year. Read on to find out what to expect, including the type of movie Nicole Kidman wants to sign under its production contract and Salke's proclamation that Amazon can manage "at least" twenty films a year, in addition to their theatrical releases.
An evolving theatrical diffusion model and the future of Amazon's Sundance acquisitions
According to Variety, Amazon "wants to buy finished films, but says it continues to produce its own films. In addition, Amazon will begin producing films that will debut exclusively on its premium subscription service and forego a theatrical release. Salke and his team donated $ 47 million to Sundance to Late at night, the report, Brittany Runs a marathon, Honey Boy, and A child nationand all these films will get theatrical releases – but while the company was stuck with a 90-day theatrical window before allowing subscribers to show their films on Amazon Prime Video, they now explore "a variety of windows" for their theatrical style. .
Salke said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter:
"You will see less than three months window, and you will see different variations … In some cases, it will be important for us that the film passes quickly to the service while continuing with a much shorter theatrical release, two weeks or two to eight weeks, and in other cases we will allow, where appropriate, a broader dissemination strategy. "
Translation: by quickly launching some titles on their streaming platform, Amazon Studios could attract new subscribers – the ultimate goal of big business.
But do not expect them to completely abandon the theaters. "We still want to be able to really support a theatrical release," Salke told THR. "I mean, look Cold War. We are entirely behind that. We would do that tomorrow. According to Variety Late at night will follow the strategy of The big patient and hit the theaters in June or July, Honey Boy and The report will arrive during this year's awards season in the fall.
Get ready for an influx of movies right on Amazon
Amazon is also looking to make films that debut directly on Amazon Prime without going to the movies. Producer of horror Jason Blum made eight movies for the streaming service with a lot of filmmakers and an Oscar Nicole Kidman also has an agreement in place to make movies and TV shows for Amazon. Salke explained to what kind of content Kidman is interested:
"I work with Nicole Kidman on this selection of sexy movies that no one turns over, like No Exit or Cruel Intentions. This kind of, "I have to stay home and drink wine with my girlfriend, my boyfriend, my husband, and watch this." It's really Nicole's thing. When I met her during my second week of work, we proceeded to the first transaction of this lunch. She wondered, "Where are the sexy and sexy movies?" We had a brainstorming meeting on that, and I thought, "Let's just take those movies, where we could go out during the summer." Every Saturday night, one of these comes out, and then you create a frenzy and a marketing story behind it. "
With Netflix in summer romantic comedies last year with Implement and To all the boys I liked beforeand now Amazon's promise to bring back sexy "provocative" adult dating movies Primary instinct Variety), it seems that streaming services are entering the country to offer a place of entertainment that can not seem to find another place in Hollywood among low-budget horror movies and mega-budget superhero movies.
And Salke, who was formerly president of NBC Entertainment and oversaw shows like Joylet's not forget the market for young adults. She has already put this into practice on television, but it will also extend to the cinema. In all, she explained, "there could also be at least 20 direct-running films run in a given year."
Elsewhere in the articles, the leader of the Amazon has mentioned the idea that society is willing to make big budget comics and very large tent mast productions – although there is still no projects in this direction. She also revealed that they would be willing to accept the Oscars on Amazon Prime Video. If ABC is fed up with falling odds and lets his contract expire, we may see the trophies delivered on a streaming service someday.
