“Centurion,” “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil” and More Great Films Come to Hulu!

June 13th, 2014 by Griffin Gmelich Content Acquisition

Well before Neil Marshall directed “Game of Thrones,” he brought “Centurion” to the screen. In the film, both Michael Fassbender and Dominic West star as Roman soldiers fighting for their lives. I can vividly remember being hooked from the opening line of the film:

My name is Quintus Dias. I am a soldier of Rome, and this is neither the beginning nor the end of my story.

Today – just in time for movie night – we are happy to bring you “Centurion,” as well as many more great films, through a partnership with Magnolia Pictures.

In our continued efforts to bring new and exciting content to our users, we are proud to announce that Magnolia Pictures will expand the breadth of premium entertainment offerings on Hulu and Hulu Plus through its Magnolia and Magnet brands. Magnolia Pictures is part of a vertically-integrated group of media properties co-owned by Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban that also includes the Landmark Theatres chain, production company 2929 Productions and high-definition cable networks AXS TV and HDNet Movies.

If you’re a Hulu Plus subscriber, look out for my favorite movie of 2010: “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil.” It’s hard to pull off a film that straddles both horror and comedy, but – with the help of Tyler Labine’s rare type of talent – this film quickly reached cult status. It was Tyler’s memorable role as Dale Dobson in this bifurcated genre and iconic film that made him the perfect star for our Hulu Original, “Deadbeat.”

The ongoing collaboration between Magnolia Pictures and Hulu will bring expanded access to experience awesome movies where you want, when you want. You can expect many more fantastic films soon, all curated to meet the needs of Hulu’s ever growing and dynamic audience including Academy Award®-winner Stephen Soderbergh’s film “The Girlfriend Experience,” “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop,” “Freakonomics,” “A Place at the Table”; documentaries “Food, Inc.,” “Marley,” and “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”; and genre arm action movies such as Japanese cult director Takashi Miike’s “13 Assassins.”

Hulu and Magnolia look forward to presenting audiences with many more opportunities to engage in movies that resonate, excite and entertain. Be sure to check out “Centurion” as part of our Hulu Movie Night offering now!
