Who doesn’t have Netflix? This is the mindset that the entertainment streaming service has implemented into the new year, because they are really stepping up their game. While quality, original television programs have been produced by Netflix for years, it is only recently that the service is going to be taking a far more aggressive approach to their competition in more traditional studios when it comes to film production. Any subscriber can be expecting a wide range of Netflix original films to be arriving in the near future.

A few of the recent films that Netflix has planned to produce include “War Party,” an Andrew Dominik (“The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford”) directed and Ridley Scott produced true story about Navy SEALs starring Tom Hardy; “Private Life,” a comedy-drama about a family struggling with fertility issues starring Molly Shannon, Katheryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti; “Beautiful Boy,” a drama about a teenager’s addiction to meth starring Steve Carrell and Amy Ryan; “The Stand Off,” a movie about a feud between the police and the Black Panthers directed by Justin Lin (“Star Trek Beyond”); and for their most ambitious project, Netflix will be finishing and distributing Orson Welles’ great unfinished film, “The Other Side of the Wind.” It is quite the release schedule.

However, if you look on your Netflix account, you can also already find a bevy of Netflix original movies such as the acclaimed “Beasts of No Nation,” “I Don’t Feel at Home In This World Anymore,” “Barry,” “A Very Murray Christmas” and “The Fundamentals of Caring.”

Netflix and other streaming services that can send quality content straight to your home is the future of entertainment, and this is a major step in the direction of at-home entertainment. The first big step was the Amazon distributed “Manchester By the Sea” getting critical acclaim and a few Oscars, which is now something that many streaming services will be striving for in the future. This isn’t much of a surprise as the industry has been flirting with the possibility for some time now, but now it is abundantly clear.
