American film studio Focus Features is streaming three of its movies for free on Facebook dubbed as #FocusFridays. Yay!
The announcement was made on the company’s social media accounts, with teasers posted as early as August 22.
Every Friday, 6pm (or 9am Saturday, PST), award-winning and classic movies such as The Motorcycle Diaries (2004), The Constant Gardener (2005), and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) will go live on Focus Features’ Facebook page in celebration of the company’s 15th anniversary.
Invite your beshies over, order pizza, pop that popcorn and don’t miss this legit movie streaming as it will not be available to view on Facebook after the screening concludes. Better to RSVP on the event page to receive notification reminders. #NoToPiracy
Focus Features is the first film studio to experiment with Facebook Live by showing its own movies after the social media site added a new Rights Manager last April, a security feature that could pull down these properties in real time, according to The Verge.
The film studio is behind some of our classic favorites Pride and Prejudice and Atonement. Their most recent releases include 50 Shades of Grey, Atomic Blonde and The Zookeeper’s Wife. And ICYMI, a Mary, Queen of Scots movie is currently in the works starring two-time, Oscar-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan alongside Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad) as Elizabeth I.
What movie from Focus Features would you want to be live-streamed next? We’ll never get sick of seeing Mr. Darcy.
