Just quickly, I finally caught up with the Duffer Brothers' new post-apocalyptic thriller Hidden and absolutely loved it. The film is about a family, played by Alexander Skarsgård, Andrea Riseborough and child actor Emily Alyn Lind, who hole up in an underground bunker when a mysterious event occurs in their small mountain town. The film is gritty and mysterious, but also emotional and held together by three flat out great performances.
Netflix has expanded its movie slate by coming on board to finance and distribute five titles — “Amateur,” “Arq,” “Clinical,” “I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House” and “Underground.”
The fast-growing distributor confirmed the deals Wednesday on the eve of the Sundance Film Festival. Since the start of 2016, Netflix has acquired rights to Paul Rudd’s “The Fundamentals of Caring” and Ellen Page’s “Tallulah” on Jan. 12.
The streaming giant, better known for backing original television shows such as “House of Cards” and “Daredevil,” released child soldier drama “Beasts of No Nation,” “Manson Family Vacation” and Adam Sandler comedy “The Ridiculous 6” last year. Upcoming movies include “War Machine” with Brad Pitt, “Jadotville” with Jamie Dornan, “Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday” and a sequel to “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”
