Ranking the movies NBC Peacock needs from Lionsgate
NBC Peacock looks to be getting more content after Comcast and Lionsgate agreed over Starz. This new deal keeps Starz networks on Xfinity TV and more importantly, gives NBC Peacock access to Lionsgate content.
These are the top Lionsgate movie series NBC Peacock needs to turn cord-cutters heads.
#8. Olympus, London, and Angel Has Fallen
#7. Sinister (1 & 2)
Sinister 2 is currently available on Netflix, but the original and best isn’t available anywhere. If NBC Peacock can license both, it could be a fantastic way to hook supernatural horror fans. The movies grossed $143 million, with the first only costing $3 million to make (grossed $88 million).
#6. The Expendables (1-3)
Surprisingly, none of The Expendables movies are available on streaming services right now. The movie trilogy, created by Sylvester Stallone and starring every action star imaginable, grossed $790 million worldwide. This series is a must for NBC Peacock.
#5. The Divergent Series
#4. John Wick (1-3)
Sling TV currently streams John Wick 1 and 2. The latest in the trilogy, Parabellum, is still only available for rent and purchase. It won’t be long before Parabellum hits streaming services, and NBC Peacock should look to snag the franchise exclusively. The three films have grossed $587 million worldwide so far.
#3. Saw (1 – 7, and Jigsaw)
The iconic horror series spanning eight movies grossed nearly $1 billion worldwide in total. Showtime, Prime and Hulu have a mix of the movies available currently. If NBC Peacock could stream the whole series, it could be a big draw for horror fans.
#2. The Hunger Games

#1. The Twilight Saga
The Lionsgate movie series NBC Peacock must get is The Twilight Saga. It is one of the biggest movie series of the last 20 years, and right now, no service has any of the movies. The franchise grossed $3.35 billion worldwide and would be a massive coup for NBC Peacock.
