like “Moonlight,” “Room,” “The Witch,” “Ex Machina,” “The Spectacular Now,” “It Comes at Night,” “Lady Bird,” “The Disaster Artist,” “Hereditary,” and more.

A24 has existing deals with DirecTV and Amazon, and those deals will remain in effect even though the entertainment company has now entered into a partnership with Apple. A24 will continue to produce and release movies outside of its partnership with Apple.

Apple’s deal with A24 is a sign that the Cupertino company also plans to delve into films as well as television shows. Apple has more than a dozenoriginal high-profile TV showsin the works, but has thus far signed few movie deals.

Apple’s original television shows and movies are expected to be included in an upcoming rumored streaming service, which could debutin early 2019.

Apple may beplanning to bundleits service with Apple Music and an Apple News subscription service for magazines, and at least some of the content could be madeavailable for freethrough the TV app.
