Basically the movies that are streamed on Netflix aren't released in theaters, right?
So my question is - How do production companies make profit after streaming their movies on Netflix?
- Of course, they would be paid money for streaming on Netflix.
- All the marketing that Netflix does, the revenue generated would go in their pockets and not the production companies.
- For any new movies coming to Netflix the subscriber doesn't need to pay extra money; so be it any movie, old or new, the subscriber simply has to pay his/her amount.
Now there are some cases where, had a movie released in theaters, it wouldn't have been a hit; and instead selling the rights to Netflix, they made profit.
But for some movies, e.g Bright, which had its own strong fan following, had they released in theaters wouldn't they have made more profit?
