The next evolution from Netflix is happening right now. Not only is it waging war with cable TV networks and retail stores around the world it is also aiming its sights towards the theatre and cinemas by simply bypassing them. Yesterday Netflix announced a new chapter in the Ang Lee martial arts series. Not losing any of the previous movies spectacle, the movie will be directed by Yuen Wo-Ping who’s work can be seen in cult classics such as The Matrix Trilogy and Kill Bill 1 & 2.
The original Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was nominated for many awards and won 4 Oscars. It spawned a short lived generation of similar movies – House of Flying Daggers and Hero included – and was the inspiration for the fight scenes in the Matrix trilogy. The storylines and cinematograhy in these are so strong that subtitles are simply not an issue. You’ll be absorbed from the word go.
We are excited both the movie and the latest chapter in the Netflix story.
