The charges relate to two women, one who claims she was sexually assaulted in 2004, and a second who alleges she was raped in 2013.
The 66-year-old - who has, via his lawyer, previously "unequivocally denied" non-consensual sex - could face a jail term up to 25 years if convicted.
Weinstein - who is represented by lawyer Benjamin Brafman - is currently wearing a GPS tracker and has surrendered his passport as part of a $1 million (£750,000) bail agreement.
The mogul is still under investigation in London, LA and by the US federal government.
