It’s been revealed that James Bond’s producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, that the movies will still be released in cinemas.
This comes after it was revealed that MGM Studios was purchased by Amazon for $8.45 billion.
With that news, people started to wonder what was going to happen to the James Bond movies.
Will these films be released straight onto Amazon Prime Video, or will they still release these future James Bond films in cinemas?
Well, it looks like as far as the Bond producers are concerned, the films will still be released on the big screen first.
This is the news that I wanted to hear because James Bond needs to be seen on the biggest screen possible.
The James Bond movies will still be released in cinemas despite being owned by Amazon
Here’s what the Bond producers had to say about the future of the franchise in a recent statement they made after Amazon acquisition of MGM Studios:
We are committed to continuing to make James Bond films for the worldwide theatrical audience.
So, it sounds as though Amazon will not be putting the future Bond movies onto their streaming service to begin with.
They will still have a theatrical release window, which is good news.
However, they will probably then release the movie onto Amazon Prime Video pretty quickly after the film’s cinema release.
