Streaming service and UK make Hollywood blockbuster!


Bye bye Hollywood and overpriced movie dissatisfaction, hello rest of world and good movies again!!!

reply

This movie was made by a streaming service? Netflix?

reply

Netflix co-produced with another distribution/film company, but yes and it makes sense; why not make money in the theatres too since they are making movies for streaming anyway, why not release to theatres the suited ones like this one - big names and decent budget.

Yeah all these streaming companies are getting into original content production. I recently heard Apple and Amazon are bidding for the James Bond 007 rights to produce the next Bond film.

They want the rights to turn it into a TV show.

reply

Wait what?!? Are you serious?

reply

Hopefully they don't but I read that's their plan; to buy well known franchises and turn out shows/content for their streaming business.

reply

Bond movies are already dead killed by Kingsman. To turn the franchise into a tv series is genius!

It's like a reboot of The Man from UNCLE tv series but with the better recognized tittle, 007.
