Netflix strikes movie deal with Weinstein Co.

Netflix Inc. says it will get some films within a year of their release in movie theaters. It says it will show "The Artist," a silent movie that has received 10 Academy Award nominations, before it appears on premium cable-TV networks.
The companies aren't disclosing financial terms.
Netflix shares rose $3.30, or 2.7 percent, to $125.15 Tuesday morning.
Netflix is based in Los Gatos, Calif.
