According to the company, "first run movies" will be limited in their availability during the first two weeks.

It's not clear how "limited" those films will be to users, but some major movies may be made available through promotions.

MoviePass offers daily access to movies for a monthly fee, then reimburses the ticket costs directly to theaters.

"Through these new steps, the company believes it will be able to compress its timeline to reach profitability," said MoviePass in a statement.
