Paramount Pictures Signs Multi-Year Licensing Deal With VOD Service MUBI

Titles like “Mission: Impossible,” “Roman Holiday” will now be available on online platform

Paramount Pictures has signed a multi-year licensing deal with VOD service MUBI, the companies announced on Monday.

The deal adds a selection of new content to MUBI’s growing library of premium titles in the UK. Titles including “No Country for Old Men,” “Mission: Impossible,” “Zoolander,” “Roman Holiday” and “Revolutionary Road” will now be available.

MUBI’s curated service highlights a new film every day to its members, setting the film in context and often reflecting events and current affairs in its programming. Members can view films across multiple connected devices and share their experiences and opinions through social features, such as rating and reviewing films and following other users.

Today’s announcement follows MUBI’s recent deals with other key distribution partners including Sony Pictures Television, eOne, Icon and StudioCanal and the launch of MUBI on EE TV.

In July, MUBI signed its first theatrical deal to release Miguel Gomes’s praised three-part film Arabian Nights in cinemas across the UK and Ireland in a partnership with New Wave Films, which also covers the home entertainment and video on demand rights.

“Following a really successful summer, this new deal continues to show tremendous momentum in our growth and unique ability to offer curated and compelling films,” MUBI founder and CEO Efe Cakerel said in a statement.

“Working with Paramount Pictures is just one of the latest of great partnerships we have developed which include festivals, major studios and distribution platform and we are looking forward to welcoming the Coen brothers to the platform,” he continued.

“Mission: Impossible” is showing on MUBI as of today.
