LOS ANGELES: Netflix Inc.'s new movie "Bright" features the key ingredients of a Hollywood blockbuster: an A-list actor, an experienced director, and special effects that light up the screen during shootouts and car chases.Netflix will instead release the movie to the company's 109 million streaming customers around the world to watch at home.Although Netflix has released smaller, less expensive original films this way, "Bright" is more of a gamble. Most major chains have refused to show Netflix movies because of the company's practice of releasing films at the same time online and in theaters.While the filmmakers might have liked a wider run in theaters for "Bright," they were impressed by Netflix's ability to release the film simultaneously in homes around the world, producer Bryan Unkeless said.
