Amazon Prime customers will get access to a bunch of big Hollywood movies over the next couple of months via Prime Instant, thanks to an extended agreement between the e-commerce giant and premium cable network Epix.

The deal includes rights to new releases like Selma, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Interstellar and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 as well as some classics, including the Star Trek and James Bond movies.

All of the movies come from Paramount, Lionsgate and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which co-own Epix. Amazon first struck a deal with Epix in 2012. At the time, that deal was seen as a blow to Netflix, which previously was the only subscription service with access to Epix movies. However, these days, Epix has deals with both companies, which means that film buffs without a Prime subscription will get to see the same movies on Netflix as well.

This post was corrected on 2/24 to clarify that the deal includes Star Trek movies, not Star Wars movies.

Got really excited when the body of the article said Star Wars, until I realized it was probably a typo.

I did just the same thing. Read it, then realized that the title said Star Trek.
