Bleecker Street Content Finds New Home on Hulu


Hulu and Bleecker Street have partnered for a new multiyear output deal that grants the streamer exclusive SVOD rights to all upcoming films from the distributor, including the thriller Hotel Mumbai.

Hotel Mumbai, which stars Dev Patel and Armie Hammer, will be the first movie to hit Hulu, launching on the service in the fall. Recounting the harrowing story of survival from the staff and guests of the famous Taj Hotel, the film follows the terrorist attacks that occurred in Mumbai in 2008.

Per the deal, Hulu will also hold streaming rights to Bleecker Street’s Teen Spirit, starring Elle Fanning; SXSW-breakout The Art of Self-Defense, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Alessandro Nivola; and the inspirational true-story biopic Brian Banks, starring Aldis Hodge, Greg Kinnear and Sherri Shepard.

“Hulu is committed to bringing impactful, quality films to audiences everywhere,” said Heather Moosnick, senior VP of content partnerships at Hulu. “We’re excited to enter into this new partnership with Bleecker Street, whose commitment to excellence is recognized by moviegoers and the industry alike. We can’t wait to share the latest Bleecker releases with the Hulu audience.”

“As we continue to expand our slate of films, we are always searching for the best partners to reach the broadest audience,” said Andrew Karpen, CEO of Bleecker Street. “We know Hulu subscribers will find something distinct and enlightening about each of our titles.”
