Netflix is trying to recover from the crisis it has been suffering in recent weeks after the massive loss of subscriptions and lawsuits from its own shareholders.

Until now, Netflix has been launching most of its productions on the platform itself, showing only a few exceptions in theaters that did not necessarily respect the exhibition windows. In this way, it has almost always been possible to watch the films from the first day paying only the standard subscription price of the platform, but Netflix could change tactics to be able to launch its films in theaters around the world before their online premiere, and it could start with ‘Daggers in the back 2’.
