Upcoming Criterion Collection Releases For July & Hulu Extends Exclusive Rights To Streaming


As a big fan of Criterion Collection I try to keep up with what they are doing.  So, here's their list of upcoming releases from now through July. Some are films that have already seen a Criterion release, but are being re-released on Bluray.

Also Criterion Collection films have been available for streaming exclusively through Hulu Plus since 2011.  If you're on the fence as to which streaming service to use, this could be a contributing factor in which one you end up picking.  

Recently Criterion and Hulu extended their partnership with another multi-year deal. So you can expect the exclusivity to continue for some time. Yesterday Engadget reported that Hulu, in celebration of the deal, is offering the Oscar Award winning film by Paolo Sorrentino, The Great Beauty.

Also check out some of Martin Scorcese's favorites from Criterion that are available for streaming on Hulu right now: HERE.
