The multi-year agreement comes just two months after Mubi signed up with Sony.

Just two months after it signed up with Sony, curated video on demand platform Mubi has announced another major studio licensing deal, this time with Paramount.

The multi-year deal adds a selection of titles such as No Country for Old Men, Mission: Impossible, Revolutionary Road, Roman Holiday and Zoolander to the U.K.-based company's growing and mostly-independent library, now available in more than 200 countries. 

Financial terms weren't disclosed.

“Following a really successful summer, this new deal continues to show tremendous momentum in our growth and unique ability to offer curated and compelling films," said founder and CEO Efe Cakarel.

"Working with Paramount Pictures is just one of the latest of great partnerships we have developed which include festivals, major studios and distribution platform and we are looking forward to welcoming the Coen brothers to the platform,” he added.

In July, the firm signed its first theatrical deal, which will see it release Miguel Gomes' Cannes-bowing three-parter Arabian Nights in cinemas, in partnership with New Wave Films. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month, Cakarel revealed that the company was expecting to make similar acquisitions going forward and have an active presence in festival markets.
