Presto continues to lead in securing top SVOD movies in 2016
Presto to be the SVOD exclusive home of five of the 10 top grossing movies of 2015, more than any other Australian SVOD service
Presto, Australia’s premier entertainment streaming service, will provide its subscribers with access to more of the top blockbuster movies than its SVOD rivals in 2016, according to new research revealing the biggest earning worldwide movies launched this year.
The top worldwide grossing movies from 2015, compiled as of today, by Box Office Mojo, were presented to attendees at last week’s Australian International Movies Convention (AIMC) held on the Gold Coast.
The news continues Presto’s lead in providing the best selection of movies of any Australian SVOD service and follows on from this year’s screening of nearly half of the top 100 Australian box office hits of 2014.
Of the Top 10 titles from 2015, Presto will have five films available for its subscribers. This includes the upcoming mega hit Presto SVOD exclusives Jurassic World, Furious 7, Minions, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and 50 Shades of Grey.
Based on the top 30 titles, Presto will secure 15 titles for its subscribers, compared to just five and three titles respectively for its SVOD rivals*.
The steamy romance 50 Shades of Grey that turns a simple interview between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) into a headlong affair that pushes the boundaries of pleasure and pain makes an early appearance on Presto and will be available in November of this year.
Presto is known for bringing the best from Hollywood and around the world to subscribers and is already screening hits including: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, The Box Trolls, The Gambler, Nightcrawler, Fury, Divergent, Boyhood, The Wedding Ringer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Whiplash and Lucy among hundreds of others. Other movies joining Presto in the coming weeks are: The Interview, It Follows, Chappie, Kill the Messenger, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Inception.
