Amazon Prime Video and Broad Green Pictures have entered a multi-year distribution deal to stream the studio’s movies.

Robert Redford‘s “A Walk in the Woods” and Bryan Cranston‘s “The Infiltrator” are among the upcoming films to offered exclusively to Prime Video customers.

“Working with Amazon to share our titles on Prime Video now gives us  the ability to strategically promote our films across more platforms, to reach even more viewers,” said Broad Green Home Entertainment President Steven Nickerson of the deal.

Prime Video has been amping up its presence as a direct (and hard charging) competitor to Netflix. The subscription broke from a previous $99 model that included perks for Amazon retail customers, coming down to a much lower fee of $8.99 for the standalone video service.

The company has also been amping up its presence with theatrical distributors as well as modeling their streaming exclusives.
