Netflix has a name for itself in short time with a roster of series stands toe-to-toe with any cable network — House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. That’s also not counting documentaries they’re released, including The Square and What Happened Ms. Simone?
The streaming video company is gearing up to add a slate of feature movies that are just as impressive as the rest of its lineup. Cary Fukunaga (aka the guy who directed the first season of True Detective) will kick off with Beasts of No Nation starring Idris Elba. In December, Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous Six will be available (if you’re rolling your eyes, Sandler’s movies actually do well on DVD and VOD). Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend the long-awaited sequel to the 2000 original will be shown in March of next year.
The flicks will also also have brief runs in actual theaters to ensure they’ll be eligible for awards consideration.
