FLIX PREMIERE is set to disrupt the motion picture industry and compete with Netflix, Amazon and movie theatres
3rd November – London, UK – Global Release – Flix Premiere, the world’s first online multiplex will change the game for film lovers around the world in the online war for original content. Unlike Netflix, Amazon, Apple TV and other video-on-demand platforms, Flix Premiere will only release original content, pioneering Cinema-On-Demand and creating a clear distinction between traditional cinema release and (VOD) platforms.
At the pre-launch event in Cannes this year, the Founder and CEO, Martin Warner
said, “There is an abundance of great theatrical movies that never get seen, that just simply die due to the existing industry model which does not support the economics or provide a broader marketing and release mechanism for all movies” Furthermore, he adds “consumers are led to believe that movies are only worth seeing if they are released at the theatre”. Warner calls this the ‘Hollywood syndrome’ good for a few, but not for the many.
Flix Premiere aims to release 8 movies per week on its multiplex theatre, in a curated format, Warner said, “Movie-goers around the world will now have a credible, exciting new alternative to theatres, and VOD platforms like Netflix. And we promise to release theatrical worthy new movie premieres that have never been seen before”. At the London Film Festival, Warner said, “Most consumers are watching platforms like Netflix for its TV drama, NOT its movies, the perception is that most movies Netflix and other VOD platforms hold, are non-exclusive deals, meaning the movies are available everywhere! Warner believes that consumers don’t get the choice and value of new motion picture content.
Flix Premiere has started to release trailers of movies that will show on the platform, together with interviews and information about their services. Warner said, “Since Cannes, we have built a pipeline of over 150 theatrical releases, and expect this number to grow significantly towards the end of the year”.
