Amazon Just Bought MGM Studios!
Have you heard the news? Amazon is stepping up their game in their entertainment department!
Amazon just announced today that they are buying MGM Studios, the popular media company known for popular movies like James Bond, as well as their roaring lion icon. This $8.45 billion deal is Amazon’s second largest acquisition, just behind their Whole Foods merger in 2017 ~ WOW! This means that the Amazon Prime Video movie and TV library will soon become more robust with a lot more options available! So exciting! 🎉
Here's what Mike Hopkins, Senior Vice President of Prime Video & Amazon Studios said –
“MGM has a vast catalog with more than 4,000 films—12 Angry Men, Basic Instinct, Creed, James Bond, Legally Blonde, Moonstruck, Poltergeist, Raging Bull, Robocop, Rocky, Silence of the Lambs, Stargate, Thelma & Louise, Tomb Raider, The Magnificent Seven, The Pink Panther, The Thomas Crown Affair, and many other icons—as well as 17,000 TV shows—including Fargo, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Vikings—that have collectively won more than 180 Academy Awards and 100 Emmys.”
Amazon hasn't stated when this merger will be complete, but I'm looking forward to all of the new movie options! (You can see their full press release here if you're interested). If you haven't tried Prime Video yet, now is a great time to do so…and you can do it completely FREE! Keep reading on how to do that…
