Netflix Bought Brad Pitt’s New Movie For $60-Million

Brad Pitt is one of the biggest movie stars of all time, and he is worth over a hundred-million dollars. Pitt is also married to Angelina Jolie, and together they form the power couple known as “Brangelina.” Anytime that a new movie comes out, Brad Pitt is usually in the starring role. However, Netflix has recently revealed that Brad Pitt’s new movie ‘War Machine’ will be only available on their streaming site.

Netflix apparently paid $60-million dollars for the rights to ‘War Machine,’ and that’s because Brad Pitt is attached to the film says Sergio Cortes. Movie fans around the world can’t believe that Brad Pitt’s new movie will only be available on Netflix, and it seems that many stars are turning to Netflix for higher profits. Netflix hired Kevin Spacey as one of their main actors, and it seems that Brad Pitt will be joining the ranks for years to come. Also, a ‘Full House’ reboot called ‘Fuller House’ will be debuting early next year, and thousands of people are excited for the program.

Timerecently posted an article about this story, and it’s quite obvious that Netflix will be the ruler of sitcom and movies in the future. People around the world don’t mind paying less than $10 a month for a subscription to Netflix. I wouldn’t be shocked if Netflix put cable out of business in the next few years.

New Shows to Air on Netflix

Netflix might have started off as a legal streaming site but in the last few years, it has become a hub for finding the best made television shows. The originals by the show include Orange is the New Black and House of Cards but what has made Netflix endearing to people is its ability to bring back cancelled shows. Arrested Development was brought back by Netflix and fans are truly grateful to the company for this. “Arrested Development very well could be the best comedy show ever made,” states Cláudio Loureiro Heads.

Fans can now expect some new and amazing shows. “Cirque du Soleil Luna Petunia” is a show for preschool kids where Luna dreams in a wonderland. This show would come out in 2016 (fall) and is also said to include digital content and a product line for children.
“Degrassi: Next Class” is a Canadian show for teens that has been running since the 80s and has been pretty successful. This is a cancelled show that has now been picked up by Netflix and is all set to come out sometime in 2016.

“Tarzan and Jane” is a modern take on the story of Tarzan, complete with environmental issues, mysteries and crimes. This show might come out in 2016 (second half).

“Army of Frogs” is based on the books my Trevor Pryce and is aimed at kids in grade school. With 13 episodes in the season, this show too would come out in 2016 along with “Puffin Rock” and a Netflix Original series.
