The Weinstein Company is breaking new ground with its release of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend. In an effort to give audiences viewing options, TWC will present the movie on Aug. 28, 2015, on both IMAX screens and Netflix Instant.
This marks the first time a first-run film will premiere on Netflix instead of in standard theaters.
“The moviegoing experience is evolving quickly and profoundly, and Netflix is unquestionably at the forefront of that movement,” Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. “We are tremendously excited to be continuing our great relationship with Netflix and bringing to fans all over the world the latest chapter in this amazing and intriguing story.”
