Uncharted, Spider-Man and more: Sony movies will arrive on Netflix, there is the agreement

Uncharted, Spider-Man and more

Sony has signed a multi-year agreement with Netflix, currently for the US market, which provides for the publication of the films of the Japanese company on the American streaming platform, following the theatrical and home video publication. Since 2006, Sony's partner has been Lionsgate. This deal includes the likes of Mobius, Uncharted, Bullet Train, and the follow-up to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

The deal will begin in 2022 and run for five years. In the future, franchises such as Jumanji and Bad Boys will also be included. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the deal between Sony and Netflix was worth about a billion dollars. Netflix will have the ability to exclusively publish part of Sony's library, which includes Columbia and studio productions such as Tri-Star, Sony Pictures Classics and Screen Gems. We also remind you that Sony and Netflix have already active an agreement for the publication of Sony Pictures Animation titles, signed in 2014. This new agreement also includes a series of Marvel productions, such as the future titles of Spider-Man and Venom. However, Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Spider-Man No Way Home are not included as they are expected in 2021. Netflix has also pledged to finance a number of productions from Sony's Motion Picture Group, which they will include films that Sony intends to make directly for the streaming service.

We reiterate that these agreements are linked to the US market: for the moment it is not clear whether Netflix will also be able to publish Sony products in Europe and more precisely in Italy.

Staying on the Netflix theme, we remind you of the cast and official synopsis of The Witcher Season 2.

Uncharted and other Sony movies will come to Netflix

Netflix and Sony have struck a deal that will put Sony’s movies exclusively on the streaming platform from 2022 onwards in the US when they're first available to stream. This includes the much-anticipated Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland.

Netflix has also committed to making a number of direct-to-streaming projects with Sony, which will be made on top of the studio's existing theatrical schedule of films. These will essentially become Netflix originals – and be available to subscribers worldwide. 

Other films among Sony’s 2022 theatrical offerings that will be available for streaming on Netflix US include Bullet Train, Morbius and Where the Crawdads Sing. The deal also encompasses Sony Pictures Entertainment films that feature Marvel characters, like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s sequel and future Venom movies.

The official announcement on Sony Pictures Entertainment’s website features a quote from Netflix Head of Global Films, Scott Stuber, who says: “Sony Pictures is a great partner and we are thrilled to expand our relationship through this forward-thinking agreement.

“This not only allows us to bring their impressive slate of beloved film franchises and new IP to Netflix in the US, but it also establishes a new source of first run films for Netflix movie lovers worldwide.”

The news should come as a comfort to those who’d like a convenient way to watch movies like Uncharted in the US. For everyone else, it means more Netflix original movies to come down the line. 

This could mean that we’ll also see Chad Stahelski’s Ghost of Tsushima movie adaptation land on Netflix after its theatrical release, and could also encourage Sony to embark on more projects featuring its wide array of IPs. God of War movie, anyone?

For Netflix, too, it offers a dependable stream of new movies at a time when streamers like HBO Max and Disney Plus are using the film slates of Warner Bros and Disney to bolster their subscriber numbers. This simply gives them an extra selling point, alongside its large array of original content.
