‘Top Gun,’ ‘Total Recall,’ Other Paramount Movies Streaming Free on Break.com’s Digital Platforms

Comedy website Break.com signed a licensing agreement with Paramount Pictures to bring about 30 films per month from the studio’s library to the free Break Movies streaming service, with “Top Gun,” “Total Recall” and “Paranormal Activity” among the initial titles available.

Break, owned by Lionsgate-backed digital media company Defy Media, launched the ad-supported movie service in January 2015. The Paramount pact adds to Break Movies’ lineup of more than 200 films from the Lionsgate library such as “Winter’s Bone” and “Devil’s Double,” as well as martial-arts films licensed from Crash Media.

Break.com will cycle titles from Paramount’s catalog each month, jointly selected by the companies, with each film to be available on the service for at least 30 days. Other movies initially available include “The Running Man” and “Bloodsport,” along with more recent theatrical releases such as “The Devil Inside” and “Jeff, Who Lives at Home.”

“The immediate enthusiastic response from our audience to longer-form offerings with ‘Break Movies’ further reinforces millennials’ increasing appetite for a la carte entertainment on mobile and (over-the-top) devices,” said Keith Richman, president, Defy Media.

Added Dina Vangelisti, senior VP of Paramount Domestic TV Licensing & Distribution, “‘Break Movies’ offers fans an opportunity to watch terrific films when and where they want to and we look forward to audiences enjoying some of the many classic and contemporary favorites from Paramount’s library.”

Users can watch the movies on Break.com and its mobile apps for iOS and Android devices; on Roku devices; and on Microsoft’s Xbox videogame consoles. Defy Media declined to disclose specifics about Break Movies’ traffic to date, except to say “hundreds of thousands of people each month” are accessing the service.
