Warner Bros. Pictures has gained some new overseas content, striking a deal with MGM to release the studios’ films (except the next Bond film) internationally. THR reports that Warner Bros. will be MGM’s new international partner, with Warner Bros. International releasing all MGM movies overseas starting with November 2022’s Bones And All.

MGM’s previous partner, Universal, will release MGM and Orion Pictures releases until October of this year as well as Women Talking in Q1 2023. Universal will also distribute the next Bond film internally, whenever it ends up being released, as part of the original deal between the two studios.

The multiyear deal between Warner Bros. and MGM includes distribution of MGM films in all terrorities outside of the US, including China, and includes physical home entertainment distribution of all new MGM titles. The two sides will work together on marketing, advertising, publicity, film distribution and exhibitor relations for the films, with Warners handling the execution of such.

Among the films set to be released overseas by Warner Bros. under the pact are the aforementioned Bones And All from Luca Guadagnino and starring Timothée Chalamet, as well as Creed III which arrives next year.
