Paramount Just Put a Bunch of Their Movies on YouTube…For Free
With streaming firmly established as the preferred, casual viewing choice for consumers, studios are constantly trying to satisfy the demands of consumers who want their products…well, on-demand. Paramount has launched the official Paramount Vault YouTube channel, offering 150 contemporary and classic titles to stream for free (as long as you’re in the U.S.).
Okay, so you won’t find Transformers or Friday the 13th or several of the titles that instantly come to mind, but there are some real gems in there, and the sizzle reel above seems to indicate that we’ll be seeing some of the more notable classics pop up online in due time. It’s unclear if these titles will be available permanently, or if Paramount will have a rotating library with current titles expiring and new titles being uploaded regularly.
For now, you can find classics like Ironweed, starring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson, The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek, and Love Streams, as well as more contemporary picks like 1900, In Dreams and Margot at the Wedding. You can (and should) also watch horror gem The Loved Ones, the feature debut from Sean Byrne, who recently premiered his awesome follow-up horror flick The Devil’s Candy at Fantastic Fest.
There are also some delightfully wacky choices in the Vault, including Masters of the Universe and the absurd John Cusack adventure-comedy Hot Pursuit. What are you still doing on this page? You have some free movies to watch.
