What movies does Amazon get as a result of the MGM deal? The ‘James Bond’ and ‘Rocky’ franchises are part of the deal.
Amazon has agreed to pay $8.45 billion for MGM, the world’s largest film studio.
The deal will give the e-commerce giant access to over 4,000 films from the media company’s extensive back catalog, which has seen its Prime Video streaming service grow in popularity.
According to an Amazon statement on the deal, “Amazon will help preserve MGM’s heritage and catalog of films, as well as provide customers with greater access to these existing works.” “Amazon’s acquisition would allow MGM to continue doing what they do best: great storytelling.”
MGM, which was founded in 1924, is known for the iconic roaring Leo the Lion that appears at the beginning of each of its films.
As a result of the deal, Amazon will have access to the following major films.
James Bond is a fictional character created by Ian Fl
The James Bond franchise, which includes Daniel Craig’s upcoming final reprisal as 007 in No Time To Die, is by far one of MGM’s biggest draws.
Bond is a British secret agent who works for MI6 and goes by the code name 007 in the series.
Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, and Roger Moore have all played the iconic role of James Bond over the years.
Rocky is a character in the film Rocky
MGM owns the rights to all six Rocky films, as well as the two Creed spin-offs.
Rocky is a rags-to-riches story about a working-class boxer who is struggling to make ends meet. He is then given the opportunity of a lifetime to turn his life around when he lands a fight against heavyweight champion Apollo Creed.
The Rocky series began in 1976 and launched then-newbie actor Sylvester Stallone to fame.
Legally Blonde is the film that earned Reese Witherspoon her title as rom-com queen.
The story centers around Elle Woods, a sorority girl and fashion guru, who sets her sights on becoming a lawyer in a bid to win her ex-boyfriend back. Throughout the process, she learns she is more than her looks and blonde stereotypes.
The film was first released in theaters in 2001 and is now considered a classic by many.
12 Angry Men
12 Angry Men is arguably one of the most iconic classics in MGM’s portfolio.
The 1957 black and white courtroom drama explores the story of 12 jurors who end up debating their own morals. This is a brief summary.
