6 Underground: Netflix breaks into blockbuster scene
Netflix dropped its original blockbuster 6 underground on Friday as part of its overtures into the blockbuster arena.
The new movie directed by the seasoned Micheal Bay who executed Transformers and Bad Boys stars another seasoned professional Ryan Reynolds.
”(It) is a loud, bombastic, utterly nonsensical yet nonetheless balls-to-the-wall cinematic endeavor,” the Observer reports.
6 underground is about six people who fake their own deaths, forming a vigilante outfit that fights criminals.
Adri Ajorna, Ben Hardy, Melanie Laurent, Dave Franco and Corey Hawkins take the roles of the other five members of the vigilante.
According to The Observer, the film gobbled up an amount estimated between $150 million (Ksh. 15billion) and $170million (Ksh. 17billion).
Netflix has also released other works such as The Irishman, which is reported to have costed between $100 million (Ksh. 10billion) and $200 million (Ksh. 20billion).
They also acquired another costly production, Red Notice, a film starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Gosling and Gal Gadot.
The recent entry of Netflix into the fray is reason enough for the long standing blockbuster monoliths to be uneasy about their future.
