PlayStation has announced that the new Sony Pictures Core app, a rebranded version of Bravia Core, is being rolled out to PS5 and PS4 consoles in select markets. The new app allows PlayStation owners to buy or rent 2,000 movies straight from their consoles, which, according to images that were shared today on PlayStation.Blog, include The Equalizer with Denzel Washington, Gran Turismo, and many other releases that have since hit VOD, while PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe members will get access to a curated catalog of up to 100 movies, ad-free. Sony Pictures Core is available starting today for PlayStation players in 23 markets globally and can be found in the Media and PS Store sections on PS5 and PS4, respectively. The app also provides exclusive access to select Sony Pictures films.

You may be familiar with the Bravia Core app, which is a great way to access a wide range of recent and classic films from Sony Pictures on Bravia TVs and select Xperia devices. Bravia Core will be rebranded to Sony Pictures Core on these devices next year, and starting today, we’re launching the Sony Pictures Core app on PS5 and PS4 consoles.

With Sony Pictures Core on PS5 and PS4, you’ll be able to purchase select Sony Pictures films during an exclusive, early access window – straight from your console. In select markets such as the U.K., France, Germany, and Japan, the first film with early access will be Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story, which is based on the unbelievable true story of a team of unlikely underdogs – a struggling working-class gamer, a failed former racecar driver, and an idealistic motorsport executive. Together, they risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world.

If you’re a PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe member, you’ll get access to a curated catalog of up to 100 movies through the Sony Pictures Core app to stream on demand from the Sony Pictures library as part of your membership. The catalog, which will be ad-free and updated periodically, features movies such as Looper, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, Elysium, and Resident Evil Damnation. There will also be additional benefits for all PlayStation Plus members, so stay tuned for more details.
