Netflix just announced release dates for its first four original feature films. You’ll be able to watch Adam Sandler’s controversial contribution, The Ridiculous Six, on December 11th, exclusively on Netflix. Not a Happy Madison fan? Don’t worry: Netflix is actually kicking off its film line up two months earlier with Beasts of No Nation, on October 16th–a war drama about a child soldier caught up in an African civil war. – Sean Buckley, Engadget

Netflix just bought the new movie from the director of True Detective

Written and directed by Cary Fukunaga, the project tells the story of a young boy that’s made to join a group of soldiers in West Africa. Netflix reportedly paid nearly $12 million to snap up the film, which stars Idris Elba (Luther, Pacific Rim). According to Deadline Hollywood, the film will be streamed worldwide on Netflix, but will also be released theatrically, with an eye towards promoting the film heavily for awards consideration. […] Netflix appears to be very aware of the pushback it will face from theater chains and is building out its theatrical strategy accordingly. The films it has stated it will release in theaters thus far are niche, awards-friendly films that will be extremely attractive to small, independent movie theatre chains — the same kind of theaters that haven’t been dissuaded by day-and-date releases the way that that larger chains like AMC Theatres have been. – Bryan Bishop, The Verge

[…] AMC, Regal, Cinemark and Carmike […] do not plan to show the drama about child soldiers in Africa because they do not want to provide screens to films that do not honor what is typically a 90-day delay between a theatrical debut and a home entertainment release. – Brent Lang, Variety
