Amazon Prime members can smell what The Rock is cookin’ before anyone else

Seasoned Amazon Prime members know the perks stretch way beyond fast, free delivery and access to plentiful video and audio content. However, the latest is sure to raise a People’s Eyebrow or two.

Today Amazon added yet another exclusive benefit, that has interesting implications for the future of cinematic entertainment. Prime members in the US can see the forthcoming Jumanji movie nearly two weeks before the Christmas release date.

The company is hosting screenings at over 1,000 cinemas (Regal, AMC, ArcLight Cinemas, National Amusements) across the US, with tickets available now.

Screenings take place on December 8 at 7pm and tickets are sold through the ATOM app and Amazon-owned IMDb.

The film, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan is a follow up to the beloved 1995 Robin Williams classic about a cursed board game.

This time around, a group of high school teens find themselves ensnared in the jungle after stumbling upon an old video game cartridge.

If Amazon has more movies on the horizon it could signal a change in the movie distribution model we’ve become so used to.

Would the chance to see movies early encourage you to sign up to Amazon Prime? Share your thoughts with us @TrustedReviews on Twitter.
