“Roma,” written and directed by Alfonso Cuarn, will have a three-week run in cinemas.
“Netflix has famously resisted traditional film distribution, where films hit the silver screen first.
It’s something that’s bothered the film establishment, most notably when Cannes Film Festival told the streaming giant in 2017 it would need to show in French cinemas if it wanted to be considered for future festivals.
Netflix fired back by pulling out of Cannes this year. But now, it’s releasing three of its films in select cinemas for a short run before people can watch them on the service. Why? Awards.
Oscar contender Roma, by Gravity director Alfonso Cuarón, will show in cinemas for around three weeks from Nov. 21, reports Variety.
Two other films with awards potential will have a one-week exclusive run: The Coen Brothers’ The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, which stars Liam Neeson and Zoe Kazan, will be in cinemas from Nov. 8, and Susanne Bier’s Bird Box, featuring Sandra Bullock, drops on the silver screen on Dec. 13.
“There’s been an overwhelming response to all of our films this festival season, including Outlaw King, which will be in theaters and on Netflix next week, and this plan is building on that momentum,” Netflix film chief Scott Stuber told the publisher………………………………….”
Dumplin’ Netflix Movie Trailer
Directed by Anne Fletcher, DUMPLIN’ follows an outspoken plus-sized teenage girl named Willowdean (Danielle Macdonald), who’s known as Will to her friends and Dumplin’ to her mother (Jennifer Aniston), a former beauty queen who now runs the local Miss Teen Blue Bonnet pageant. In her small Texas town, Will confidently ignores comments about her weight and listens to Dolly Parton songs obsessively. But when she decides to enter her mother’s pageant in protest, her bold move encourages other contestants to follow in her footsteps, redefining the town’s traditions in the process.

“Get ready, Jungle Book fans: the latest adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s book is well on its way, and judging by the trailer it’s going to be a real feast for the eyeballs.
The 200-second feature above introduces us to Mowgli (Rohan Chand) and a cast of (very famous) talking animals, including a Christian Bale-voiced Bagheera and Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan.
The visuals looks genuinely impressive, and Shere Khan looks even more unnerving than he did in the Disney adaptation.
Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle will be available on Netflix and in select in some theatres on Dec. 7th.”
Kurt Russell is Santa in ‘The Christmas Chronicles’ trailer: Watch
Kurt Russell is coming down the chimney.
Netflix has released the first trailer for the holiday film The Christmas Chronicles, and the Emmy- and Globe-nominated actor is rocking the whole Santa get up—minus the cherry red nose.
Flanked by two fledgling documentarians, Russell’s Santa gets in a bit of jam on Christmas Eve when his reindeer are forced into a crash landing.
From delightful banter with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Vella Lovell to charmingly flippant dialogue with New Girl‘s Lamorne Morris, this Kris Kringle is teeing up a new kind of festive treat. Seriously, he plays in a jazz band and does whatever this is:
When making a queue and checking it twice this holiday season, put The Christmas Chronicles high on your list. Naughty or nice, it is going to be something.
The Christmas Chronicles begins streaming on Netflix November 22.
