Foxtel has signed a new movie distribution agreement with production house Entertainment One.

The new deal with Entertainment One (eOne) has secured a package of prestigious feature films for Foxtel’s movie service in a move that will significantly enhance the library of movies on the pay-tv and on-demand platform.

The agreement includes an exclusive slate of current feature films, featuring the critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning 1917. Winner of three Academy Awards, two Golden Globes and seven BAFTAS, including Best Film, Best Director and Outstanding British Film, 1917 was eOne’s biggest theatrical release in the UK to date, grossing over $578 million worldwide.

The slate also features multi-award-winning hits such as Judy starring Renee Zellweger, who received an Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe award for the role, and Vice starring Christian Bale and Amy Adams.

Other titles include critically acclaimed movies Wild Rose starring Jessie Buckley, Booksmart directed by Olivia Wilde, Australian coming-of-age drama Babyteeth, as well as Captive State, Thank You For Your Service and Just Getting Started.

The new agreement will also include Oscar winning film Green Book starring Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen, Australian-made films Palm Beach and Top End Wedding and a significant number of library titles.

Foxtel’s Chief Commercial Officer, Amanda Laing said:

“At a time when we know our customers are spending more time at home and more time watching Foxtel, this new deal with our partners at eOne adds to our great movie line-up. The relationship with eOne provides our subscribers with some of the world’s best hit movies, from Green Book and 1917 to Judy, some of which are available to watch immediately.”

“For more than a decade, eOne has connected with the world’s best film partners to tell stories on the big screen. With strong first-look and output partnerships with some of the most recognised producers around the world, eOne’s expansive library of films includes more than 14,000 titles.”
