This Fall, Netflix to Release 10 Films in Theaters Prior to Streaming Debut
Thinking that you’ll be watching Netflix’s new Narnia adaptation while wearing your pajamas on your couch at home? Don’t be so sure.
Netflix only released four films in theaters in 2018, but one of them was the Oscar-winning Roma. Now, in this upcoming autumn season, the streaming giant has announced plans to release ten films exclusively in theaters prior to being made available on their online platform. As Netflix quests for more recognition at the Oscars with these ten releases, notable titles are the Martin Scorsese film The Irishman and the innovative 2D animated movie Klaus.
Among these ten films, the length of time shown exclusively in theaters before hitting Netflix’s online streaming service varies from one week to a month. For Narnia fans, this may encourage hope that that Netflix’s adaptation won’t just be available on small screens. The most recent report indicates that Netflix is developing the Narnia franchise as a set of movies and at least one series.
