Among them are Leslye Hedland's razor sharp comedy "Bachelorette" the raucous Sundance Film Festival sensation about three best girlfriends ( Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan) whose night of prenuptial debauchery threatens to ruin the wedding; "Only God Forgives," Nicolas Winding Refn's eagerly awaited follow up to "Drive" starring Ryan Gosling and Kristen Scott Thomas; the Toronto and Telluride satirical hit "Butter" with Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Olivia Wilde, Rob Corddry, Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone and Hugh Jackman.

Also coming to Netflix are "The Details" starring Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Banks, Dennis Haysbert, Kerry Washington, Ray Liotta and Laura Linney which also premiered at Sundance to great fanfare and "Lay the Favorite," another Sundance hit directed by Academy Award® nominee Stephen Frears ("The Queen") starring Bruce Willis, Rebecca Hall, Catherine Zeta- Jones and Vince Vaughn.

"We are delighted to be extending our relationship again with TWC, incorporating the cutting edge and crowd-pleasing movies distributed by RADiUS," said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. "Weinstein movies like this year's Academy Award winning best picture "The Artist" and the biggest French box office hit ever "The Intouchables" are coming to Netflix in the next few months and we are looking forward to having the RADiUS titles soon after."

"As an independent studio, we embrace all of the new avenues people are choosing to use when seeing their favorite movies," said TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein. "The RADiUS-Netflix partnership is a natural and exciting next step for us, and one that gives us the power to reach a broader audience than ever before."
