Amazon Enters Distribution Game With Woody Allen's "Wonder Wheel"
July 27, 2017
Amazon Studios announced it will be acting as its own distributor for the upcoming Woody Allen film Wonder Wheel. This puts Amazon on the path to full-service studio status. The film will be released in December, and looks to be an awards season contender.
Amazon has been in the film game since 2015, but up until now has gone through established distribution houses to bring their movies to market theatrically. Amazon will bring on additional staff, and Head of Marketing and Distribution Bob Berney will oversee the releases. This move into distribution has been rumored ever since they took last year's awards circuit by storm, with such acclaimed titles as Manchester by the Sea and The Salesman.
