Amazon is Increasing the Price of Prime Membership

Amazon Prime, which features free two-day shipping and access to video and music streaming libraries, will soon cost $20 more per year.

The new price, $119, will go into effect on May 11 for new subscribers. Existing members will be charged the higher price beginning June 16 as their accounts become eligible for renewal, CFO Brian Olsavsky announced on Thursday (April 26).

“The value of Prime to customers has never been greater,” Brian told investors. “And the cost is also high, as we pointed out especially with shipping options and digital benefits, we continue to see rises in costs.”

He highlighted the changes to Prime, including the growth in the number of products available for two-day and same-day delivery, as well as the global expansion of the membership program. “[Prime] is much different than it was in 2014,” he said.

Amazon has been charging $99 per year for Prime since 2014, when it raised the price from $79 a year.

Jonah Hill & Joaquin Phoenix Team Up in 'Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot' Trailer - Watch Now!

Jonah Hill is Joaquin Phoenix‘s sponsor in the brand-new trailer for Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, released by Amazon Studios on Thursday (April 26).

That same day, Jonah spoke onstage at 2018 CinemaCon held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Their co-star in the film, Jack Black, was also in attendance. He snapped a pic with Dakota Johnson while inside.

In Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, John Callahan (Joaquin), on the rocky path to sobriety after a life-changing accident, discovers the healing power of art, willing his injured hands into drawing hilarious, often controversial cartoons, which bring him a new lease on life.

The dramedy, based on the memoir of the real-life cartoonist, is directed by Gus Van Sant and also stars Rooney Mara.

“This was the most immersive and enjoyable and cathartic experience I’ve ever had,” Jonah said at the event. “Unbelievably educational and exciting experience.”

Watch the trailer below, and don’t miss it when it hits theaters on July 13!

Dakota Johnson Stars in Terrifying 'Suspiria' Preview at CinemaCon 2018!

Dakota Johnson Stars in Terrifying 'Suspiria' Preview at CinemaCon 2018!

Suspiria just released teaser art – and a preview that stunned audiences at 2018 CinemaCon on Thursday (April 26) in Las Vegas!

During a noon lunch reception, director Luca Guadagnino previewed “grisly footage” from his upcoming remake of the classic horror movie, according to Variety.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Dakota Fanning

During the scene, Dakota Johnson was seen practicing ballet. Warning: the scene description gets intense from this point on!

“Every pirouette she pulls off has gruesome consequences for a dancer in another studio — as Johnson practices, the other young woman is literally ripped apart, descending into a mess of broken bones, urine, spittle, and blood. It’s intense, to put it mildly.”

Sounds creepy! Dakota recently revealed she needed to go to therapy after filming the movie. Check out the teaser art for the film, which arrives later this fall, below.

Adele Steps Out From the Salon in Beverly Hills!

Adele Steps Out From the Salon in Beverly Hills!

Adele is getting in a little pampering on her Thursday afternoon!

The “Hello” vocal powerhouse was spotted leaving the Balayage Salon on Thursday (April 26) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Adele

Adele kept it casual and comfy in an all-black ensemble while heading out for the solo spa session.

Adele‘s former sprawling country estate in West Essex, England is now on the market for $13.2 million, according to new reports. Adele used to live there between 2010 and 2011.

“[The] estate will appeal to someone who wants complete privacy. The current owner rented it out to Adele for that very reason and I don’t think much has changed internally since she lived there,” a real estate affiliate said of the listing.
