MoviePass Excludes Major Films This Weekend

MoviePass has excluded several new major films this weekend from their $9.95 per month membership. Among the new blockbusters and wide releases not included are Blackkklansman, Christopher Robin, Crazy Rich Asians, Mission: Impossible: Fallout, and The Meg.

Instead, subscribers will have to wait until Tuesday, Aug. 28 to see Crazy Rich Asians and Wednesday, Aug. 29 to see The Meg.

This must come as a disappointment for MoviePass customers who thought they were going to be able to see all new releases, especially those with wide distribution in the US.

MoviePass now limits the available movies through the membership, and not all films will be playing in a theater near you. Titles that are eligible for the free viewing this weekend include lesser known and less distributed films such as An L.A. Minute, A.X.L., Papillon, Searching, Skate Kitchen, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, and We the Animals.

However, action comedy The Happytime Murders starring Melissa McCarthy and Screen Gems’ thriller Searching are among the nine weekend selections.

Last week, MoviePass told subscribers they would only be able to choose between six movies per day but promised it would include a “selection of major studio first-run films and independent releases.” That number has gone up to nine for the weekend, but is missing the blockbusters many MoviePass customers signed up for.

The daily selections followed a bigger change to the MoviePass monthly plan that started limiting subscribers to only three movies per month.

The company decided to cap the amount of movies viewable per day, (previously one per day), rather than up the monthly fee to $14.95.
