Fans of R-Patz, K-Stew and, er, T-Laut – stand by your beds: the Twilight saga is coming to our streaming service. Eclipse, the third film in the series, will be available from October in the first batch of titles from our new friends at Entertainment One UK (eOne).
eOne are a fantastic independent film distributor and we’ve signed a five-year deal with them. Which means that, from this Autumn, you’ll be able to see their movies as part of our Watch Online service; on your PC, internet-connected TV or PS3™.
And, a little further ahead, we’ll have The Three Musketeers, starring Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans and Milla Jovovich; The Ides of March, starring, written & directed by George Clooney; and the final instalments of The Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2.
Obviously, we’ve already got all eOne’s currently available titles for rental on DVD and Blu-ray – but then you’d expect that, right?
Simon Calver, our CEO, said: “I am so excited that LOVEFiLM will be the only place that film fans can watch movies such as The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. eOne are an ideal partner with an excellent catalogue and great new films, and this is in line with our strategy of having the best content available and delivering the best possible experience to our members, who are passionate about films and TV series.”
Alex Hamilton, Director of Film at Entertainment One, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to do this deal with LOVEFiLM. I feel this is a landmark deal for both parties.”
