The original movies come from huge stars.

Netflix is continuing to change the game when it comes to the ways that we get our entertainment. We have loved shows like Orange is the New Black, The Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt, and House of Cards, and now they have finally announced the release date of their official movies. Until now, it seemed like it had been a series of smoke and mirrors about what these movies will be like, how they will be available, and how they will be released. The company has now released the schedule of their original movies, their first set ever, and they will be out before the end of this year, according to Deadline.

The first film that will be released is the one staring Idris Elba, "Beasts of No Nation" which is directed by the True Detective mastermind Cary Fukunaga. The film, while being available on Netflix, will also be in some select theaters for people who prefer that method. The reason it will be released in theaters because it is very likely a qualifying run for any potential awards consideration at the end of the year.

Other films that will be available include Adam Sandler films that were made specifically for Netflix. The Ridiculous Six, will debut on December 11th. Sandler, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider, and Nick Nolte all star in the film, which will be beating the 70mm release of Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight by a couple of weeks. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend will be released on Netflix in the first quarter of next year, with a theatrical release in China and a planned domestic IMAX release. Yuen Wo-Ping, a filmmaker and stunt coordinator who's worked on everything from Once Upon a Time in China to Kill Bill, is directing.

Another release will come from Pee-wee Herman with Pee-Wee's big Holiday in March 2016, which is a collaboration between Paul Reubens and Judd Apatow. According to Netflix's description, in the film "a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger" kicks off Pee-wee's adventure.
