"The culling of Paramount’s release slate is being spearheaded by chairman Jim Gianopulos, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The exec took over the reins last spring, watching the movies he had inherited and making some hard choices.
“He sat down and looked at what is theatrical, what is not in this day and age,” says one source. Certain movies were not making the cut."
"Sources say the movie needed some work, and while Abrams expressed an intent to get down to business in postproduction, it was too little, too late. Several sources suggested that Abrams’ attention may be taken up by his unexpected new assignment, the final installment of the Star Wars Skywalker episodes, which he signed on to in September after the firing of director Colin Trevorrow.

Man guys, does it really matter what screen it was made for or released to first? I’ve seen some great “made for Netflix” movies and some bad ones, just like theatrical releases. They’re all just movies in my book.
