How Netflix saves movies from box-office disaster
Netflix is changing the movie industry, a lot faster than expected
Netflix is changing the movie industry, a lot faster than expected. When a second 'Jungle Book' remake was announced (titled 'Mowgli'), many thought it would bomb upon release. 'The Jungle Book' had previously made nearly a billion at the box office, making 'Mowgli' something of a copycat. Luckily, Netflix picked up the production, and the film has now hit the streaming service. It isn't the only movie that has been saved from potential box office humiliation. In fact, there have been plenty of films that have found a nice home on Netflix, away from cinematic critics and the pressure of turning a huge profit. Check out this new gallery, and find out just how Netflix saves movies from box office disaster.
