Forget about same day releases and talk of high-priced rentals when Netflix are bypassing the cinema altogether.

The Discovery is the latest film to get its release on the Netflix streaming service and further asks the question of what will happen to the cinema going experience in the future?

The Discovery stars Robert Reford, Jason Segel and Rooney Mara.

“Soon after the existence of the afterlife has been scientifically proven, the son (Jason Segel) of the man (Robert Redford) who made the discovery falls in love with a woman (Rooney Mara) with a tragic past.”

The Discovery will be available on Netflix from 31 March.
