Netflix, already known for shaking up the traditional entertainment structure by producing TV series such as House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, is jumping directly into the feature-film production business. Netflix has contracted with The Weinstein Company to release the Internet streaming-media company's first major feature film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, a sequel of sorts to director Ang Lee's celebrated 2000 martial-arts epic, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The film will be released on August 28, 2015, and will premiere on Netflix and also will be shown in IMAX theaters around the world. Neither Ang Lee nor Chinese superstar actor Chow Yun-fat will return for the project, but actress Michelle Yeoh is back in the cast. She will be joined by martial arts star Donnie Yen, and the director will be Yuen Wo-ping. This year, Netflix's programming garnered a record 31 Emmy nominations.
