Fox Nation, Fox News Media’s conservative-leaning subscription streaming video-on-demand platform, has signed a distribution deal with Warner Bros. Pictures showcasing Clint Eastwood movies and documentaries.
In August, Fox Nation will begin to offer six movies from the 91-year-old actor/director icon, in addition to two original Eastwood-themed documentaries. In January 2022, the platform will also feature five Warner Bros. films in a “Who Can Forget The ’80s” catalog package.
Movies streaming on Fox Nation include Dirty Harry, The Enforcer, Sudden Impact, The Dead Pool, Pale Rider and Heartbreak Ridge.
Eastwood gained legendary status among conservative voters after speaking at the 2012 Republican National Convention. The actor also criticized former President Trump for his social media posts and personal attacks.
“I would personally like for him to not bring himself to that level,” Eastwood told The Wall Street Journal in 2020.
“Clint Eastwood is somebody that our audience holds in very high esteem and is very iconic. … It’s all about the data,” Jason Klarman, Fox Nation president, said in a media statement. “We know when they are watching us and what they are going to watch.”
