Cary Fukanaga's 'Beasts of No Nation' Gets a Teaser

Netflix is attempting to change the game again, this time for feature film, as Jane Eyre and True Detective director Cary Fukanaga has written and directed this war drama starring Idris Elba for the streaming service, which will premiere it on October 16th but also place it in limited theatrical release that same day. The movie is being treated as a typical theatrical film, premiering at the Venice Film Festival in a prime in-competition slot, so the only difference will be the debut for streaming at the same time. If this works out, if the film manages to land awards attention and buzz for which it's eligible, this could radically shift the landscape of film once again, as more original films with big name directors and casts funded by the company will no doubt start being produced in rapid fashion.
