Every big movie studio has a critical flop now and then. Now Netflix Inc., which is trying to join Hollywood’s big leagues with the new $90 million fantasy-action film “Bright,” has earned that badge of honor.
The movie will be available on the streaming-video service starting Friday. It’s part of Netflix’s attempt to build its own library of programming of all sorts — big-budget pictures, small documentaries, sitcoms, dramas, reality shows — so it won’t have to rely on shows and films from rivals such as Walt Disney Co.
The company will release more than 80 films in 2018, building on the 50 or so released this year. A handful, like “Bright,” are big and expensive enough to be considered major Hollywood productions” (Bloomberg 2017)

Do you consider Netflix’s decision to join Hollywood’s big league with their own production and their strategy to release the movie only on their streaming-video service as a clever move to disrupt the cinema business? (A minimum of 200 words please). Please upload your group output.
