Amazon Doubles Down on Entertainment With 'indie' Movie Bet

by Clip Syndicate

Amazon.com Inc is making a high-stakes foray into the challenging realm of independent movies, the latest step in its attempt to move beyond simply distributing digital entertainment content to creating it. Amazon said on Monday it was aiming to produce close to 12 movies a year for theatrical release which would then be available on its Prime video service within two months, significantly faster than the roughly one-year wait it normally faces to stream Hollywood releases.

'The Interview' to Get Theatrical Release in France

Sony's controversial comedy, The Interview, about the assassination of Kim Jong Un, is once again scheduled to get a theatrical release in France.

It's the latest in a series of rescheduled release dates in Europe for the movie, which will now be released in Germany Feb. 5 and in the U.K. Feb. 6.

Witness the Awe as 3-year-old Sees 'Star Wars' for the First Time

When Sam Blakeman's son wanted to watch something involving space, Blakeman knew just the thing. He cued up that shining classic "Star Wars: A New Hope" and then got busy making his own little movie of his son's reaction to the rolling opening credits, chill-inspiring score and the first battlelicious scene. Little James' reaction at first seems a little too frenetic, perhaps a wee bit overacted as he's egged on a bit by his dad. But then the lasers start flying and viewers can watch his expression resolve into one of pure awe at the amazingness unfolding on the screen before him. In other words, the Force has awoken in yet another "Star Wars" devotee. Rock on, little Jedi.
