Universal has struck a deal with Peacock that will make sure all Universal, DreamWorks and Illumination films will release on Peacock in the US no more than four months after they hit theaters, according to a Reuters report.
The list of movies that will be exclusive to Peacock once they leave theaters include the upcoming animated Super Mario movie, which is in production at Illumination, as well as Jurassic World: Dominion, a new movie from Get Out filmmaker Jordan Peele, new Minions movies, and new Puss in Boots films.
The deal is for the Pay-One window, which the period after the movie has left theaters and play on streaming services or cable channels. This window usually lasts 18 months.
The Universal and Peacock deal splits the Pay-One window into three segments. New movies will go to Peacock for the first and last four months of the 18 month period. For the 10 months in-between, Universal will offer the films to other distributors to license.
By showcasing content across multiple platforms throughout the Pay-One window, (Universal) titles will constantly refresh across the streaming ecosystem ensuring no title or platform is oversaturated,” said Universal in a statement.
