All you need to know!
While Universal Studios and 20th Century Fox may have reigned supreme in the world of cinema for decades, we are undergoing a shift and Netflix, the powerhouse that it is, has become a household name. Being a media-services provider and an internet entertainment service, this American based company was established back in 1997, when its initial business primarily circled around DVD sales.
However, it wasn’t until 2012 that Netflix’s career sky-rocketed and it began to offer a variety of Netflix Original content, and talking specifically about original feature films, the first one to come out was 2015’s Beasts of No Nation. After that, there was no stopping!
One after another, Netflix has provided its 130 million (paid) subscribers with enthralling movies which keep them hooked and keep them coming back for more. Last year we saw the Will Smith starrer Bright and then this year, the hype was all about To all the Boys I’ve Loved Before, and just as we know it, the sun of 2018 is setting upon us while we stand in awe of 2019 because let me tell you, it’s going to be one heck of a ride!
Right at the very beginning of 2019, in the month of January alone, there are more movies being uploaded on Netflix than we’d even have time to watch!
