Amazon Studios Looks to The Big Screen

The media production arm of the e-commerce giant will produce and acquire up to 12 original films a year that will premiere on Prime Instant Video 4 to 8 weeks after their theatrical debut. This is a much shorter time frame than the typical 39 to 52 weeks it takes for movies to make it to a streaming platform.

This story got buried in my notes. Amazon announced this back in January, and if you take a look at Prime Instant Video you can see they've started to make up ground on their competitors for recent content.
