Netflix and Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) have closed an exclusive first-pay-window licensing deal in the U.S. for theatrically released feature films, starting with Sony’s 2022 movie slate.
This new agreement builds on Netflix’s pre-existing output deal with Sony Pictures Animation films to now include all SPE film labels and genres.
Under the multiyear pact, Netflix will have first-pay-window rights to SPE titles after their theatrical and home-entertainment windows. Morbius, Uncharted, Where the Crawdads Sing and Bullet Train will be among the initial 2022 offerings, followed by the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and several more SPE films featuring Marvel characters, as well as expected follow-ups for the Jumanji and Bad Boys franchises. Netflix will also license rights to select titles from SPE’s movie library.
