Netflix Commits to Exclusive Theatrical Releases for ‘Marriage Story,’ ‘The King,’ and 8 More Fall Films
On the heels of the announcement that Martin Scorsese’s gangster epic “The Irishman” will receive a nearly four-week exclusive theatrical release before it becomes available to stream, Netflix has now confirmed it will give nine other fall movies a similar theaters-first rollout: “The Laundromat,” “Dolemite Is My Name,” “The King,” “Earthquake Bird,” “Marriage Story,” “Klaus,” “I Lost My Body,” “Atlantics,” and “The Two Popes.” The news marks Netflix’s biggest commitment to theatrical exhibition in a single movie season. Netflix officially became a member of the MPAA in January.

Not all the films are slated for Oscar contention. Netflix is also using theaters to help differentiate its movies and make its filmmakers happy; this spring Netflix put into theaters both John Hancock’s “The Highwayman,” starring Kevin Costner, and J.C. Chandor’s “Triple Frontier” starring Ben Affleck.)
